The Vaisala GMW90 Series carbon dioxide transmitters are based on new measurement technology for improved reliability and stability. Designed for demand controlled ventilation, these transmitters measure carbon dioxide and temperature, with the option for humidity measurements. The instruments come with a calibration certificate that meets traceability and compliance requirements. The transmitter's inspection interval is five years.
The GMW90 Series transmitters use advanced Micro-Electro-Mechanical System (MEMS) technology for measuring carbon dioxide. The CARBOCAP® carbon dioxide sensor's continuous reference measurement enables reliable and accurate readings and outstanding long-term stability also in buildings with round-the-clock occupancy. The new generation CARBOCAP® sensor no longer uses an incandescent light bulb, which limits sensor lifetime. This unique sensor consumes very little power compared to other sensors on the market. As a result, instrument self-heating is low and humidity and temperature can be measured correctly.
GMW90 Series Transmitters have been designed for quick and easy installation and maintenance. Every model includes a display for easy startup and convenient maintenance. To protect the sensor from dust and dirt during construction and installation, the units can be cabled with back-plate only. Electronics can be snapped on later at an appropriate phase in the construction project. Dip switches make it quick and easy to configure the transmitters.
Regular instrument maintenance guarantees a long lifetime of the GMW90. Calibration is easiest done with the exchangeable measurement modules. Sensor traceability and measurement quality is easily maintained by snapping on a new pre-calibrated module. The instrument can also be calibrated using a hand-held meter or reference gas CO2 bottle. The service interfaces are easy to reach by simply sliding the cover down. The closed cover keeps the measurement environment stable during calibration and ensures a top-quality final result.
