Using NDIR sensing technology, our Carbon Dioxide (CO2) sensor is suitable for monitoring the respiration rate of climacteric fruits during the ripening process.
Model No: PDS-EC-TX-CO2
Carbon Dioxide/Oxygen can be used to monitor the respiration rate of climacteric fruits during the ripening process, which can be used as an indicator on how fast the fruit is ripening (the respiration rate is high) and can to used to tell if ripening has completed (the fruit’s respiration rate reduces dramatically). By setting a room to very low O2 (about 2%) and high CO2 (about 5%) you can stop the ripening process within the fruit for long term storage.
High quality, robust sensing technology
High-quality sensing technology
Water and dust resistant
We offer a range of high-quality Australian-made sensors for use in conjunction with, or independent of, the FreshView® EC12 Environmental Controller. Sensors are available for the detection of ripening gas (ethylene), carbon dioxide, temperature, relative humidity, pulp temperature and oxygen. Each sensor provides an analogue output signal and is housed in an enclosure that provides suitable protection against water and dust ingress (IP651). Sensors can be interfaced with other monitoring and control systems, including those manufactured by third parties.
