VOC Room Sensor, BAPI-Stat 3 Enclosure
Part Number: BA/BS3
Humans respirate Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) as well as CO2. The BAPI sensor measures these VOCs as they build up in a room just like a CO2 sensor does. The advantage of the VOC sensor is that it measures air contaminants from other sources besides respiration, such as building materials, cleaners, perfumes and furniture and carpet off-gassing. Using this sensor for Demand Controlled Ventilation then is a way of achieving true indoor air quality, rather than just CO2 dilution.
A further benefit is that it requires no additional work on your part. That’s because the unit outputs a CO2 equivalent level, letting you use Ashrae’s CO2-based VRP schedule to ventilate.
The BAPI-Stat 3 VOC Sensor is available as VOC alone or as a combination temp and humidity sensor with temp setpoint and override. Indication of the VOC level as “Good, Fair or Poor” is available as a 3-color LED or as an arrow on the LCD.
- Optional Temp, Humidity, Temp Setpoint & Override
- Achieves True Indoor Air Quality Rather Than CO2 Dilution
- Output is Correlated to a CO2 Value for Easy DCV Setup
