Why is measuring CO2 important?

Most of us know that CO₂ is a colorless, odorless gas that’s soluble in water and often seen as the bubbles in fizzy drinks. But it’s also a greenhouse gas, a by-product that’s released when we burn materials containing carbon, as well as a gas formed in the respiratory and metabolic processes of living organisms, […]

Relative humidity – How is it defined and calculated?

Relative humidity – How is it defined and calculated? The first step on the journey to mastering humidity parameters is to understand partial pressures. We’ll begin our journey by the sea, with a one-meter square drawn in the sand. Now, imagine that there is an air column going up through the atmosphere and into space, with […]

A study of mapping studies: Open-door versus defrost cycles

A study of mapping studies: Open-door versus defrost cycles We receive many questions from customers on mapping studies and monitoring applications. Often the questions generate interesting exchanges that dig deep into the application details, methods used, and rationales. In this blog we share one such exchange between Paul Daniel, Vaisala’s Senior GxP Regulatory expert, and a customer […]

What role do alerts play in a modern measurement system?

What role do alerts play in a modern measurement system? Nowadays we are bombarded by notifications, especially on our smartphones, where we might receive several every hour. Alerts are notifications about exceptional situations in your system; they make sure you are forewarned if conditions take a turn for the worse, helping to prevent disaster or […]

Indoor farming technology: Consistent growth through reliable measurement

Indoor and vertical farming technology operations require significant investments to scale and maintain operations profitably. Key factors for success are energy use for climate control, and labor to support operations. Accurate and dependable environmental sensors such as those for humidity, temperature, and carbon dioxide, can help reduce costs in both categories, while lower quality instruments […]

Carbon Dioxide Measurements

Carbon dioxide measurement is required in many applications from building automation and greenhouses to life science and safety.  Many technologies are used to measure CO2. Infrared (IR) sensing is the most widely applied one. Benefits of IR sensors over chemical sensors:  stable and highly selective to the measured gas a long lifetime and they withstand high humidity, dust, […]
