The recent past and in particular the Covid 19 pandemic has made people and companies aware of the importance of air quality. Since there is no universal sensor for the monitoring of airborne viruses, which is economically sustainable, in order to be able to spread it widely in indoor spaces, UpSens has decided to develop the connected QuAir sensor which, in its basic version, measures the concentration of carbon dioxide (CO2 ) and allows to know the level of risk related to the proliferation of airborne viruses.
QuAir is the new line of IoT sensors developed and manufactured by UpSens, for B2B.
Importance of real data
Never take the quality and reliability of a measurement system for granted, as predictive algorithms, artificial intelligence and machine learning are the basis of success, to develop advanced and intelligent logic, which can really be useful for the purpose for which they were create.
QuAir has been designed to measure various parameters, thanks to the sensors it contains, in a reliable way; it is connected, in fact it allows you to send measurement data to a cloud space with a customizable frequency; it does not require installation but only a simple user-side configuration; it is modular, so it can be easily customized, based on the specific needs of the environment or application in which it is positioned.
QuAir allows to create a network of connected sensors, spread throughout the building, to know the environmental quality of a specific area. This makes it possible to control the most important parameters, such as air quality, and to know whether a correct air exchange, required to maintain a healthy environment for the occupants, is performed regularly.
Health and well-being, indoors, are strategic objectives today more than ever: in Italy and in other industrialized countries, people spend about 90% of their time indoors, where the air can be even 5 times more polluted than indoors. external. Smart building consists in making the buildings in which we live and work “intelligent”, capable of automatically managing the parameters that make an indoor space healthy.
QuAir allows to create a network of connected sensors, widely spread throughout the building, to know the environmental quality of a specific area. This allows you to keep the most important parameters under control, such as air quality, and to know if a correct exchange is carried out regularly, necessary to maintain a healthy and profitable environment for the occupants.
Thanks to its modularity, QuAir is also a “technological platform”: QuAir models can be customized based on specific application needs, when different functionalities and “target prices” are required from the standard device. The experience and know-howachieved during the development of the standard product line, allow providing the customer a competitive customization service both in terms of time and investment.
Types of power supply
Exceeding the threshold
By coupling or integrating QuAir in their products, manufacturers of air exchange systems, Controlled Mechanical Ventilation, air handling units, purifiers, and extractors, allow end users to manage their systems in an automated and smart way. Switching the actuators on and off and adjusting them, managed through the readings made by the connected QuAir sensors, also allow to optimize energy consumption and to add features for the remote control of the system performance, thus operating in a perspective of predictive maintenance.
+ comfort for the occupants
+ communication with the air treatment system
+ reduction of the risk of virus transmission by air
+ optimized plant management
+ remote diagnostics
+ predictive maintenance
Customized hardware and software configurations can be made, for example setting the thresholds of the individual parameter and the alarms, the destination of measurement data, sensors on the board, type of power supply, physical connection and communication protocol
Request information regarding the configuration of the product of your interest.
- Monitoring of environmental quality to maintain certification requirements (e.g. WELL Building Standard)
- Integration or combination with air extractors or Controlled Mechanical Ventilation (CMV) for the optimization of switching on, shutdown and regulation
- Communication and interaction with air purifiers to optimize their operation
- Enabling and functioning of predictive maintenance, by collecting data and developing specifically designed algorithms
QuAir can be integrated and combined with actuators for air treatment, purification, or exchange and / or interaction with Building Management System systems.
The QuAir sensor can control the actuator, thanks to the creation of direct communication with it, in order to optimize its switching on and switching off and adjustment during operation.
Or QuAir can send the data to regulate the operation of the actuator to the Building Management System present in the building, via the Ethernet network or via Modbus.
