In the cold season we do not want to sit constantly in front of an open window. But especially in times of Corona, proper and regular ventilation is an effective and important measure for infection control. CO2 traffic lights help to find the right time to open the window.
Aerosols are a possible transmission route of the Corona virus. They spread quickly in the air, especially in closed rooms. Ventilation as needed can help reduce the risk of infection and is an important part of infection control.
At the beginning of the new school year, the Ministry of Education and Cultural Affairs of Baden-Württemberg declared regular and proper ventilation of all rooms to be one of the central hygiene measures. This is because regular ventilation or ventilation technology in rooms can significantly reduce the risk of infection with the COVID-19 virus. This is the result of a recent statement by the Commission on Indoor Air Hygiene (IRK) of the Federal Environment Agency. The IRK recommends replacing stale air with fresh air five times every hour.
However, windows are often opened only after the critical CO2 value has been exceeded. Especially in winter, when the air outside is cold. CO2 traffic lights serve here as an indication of good or poor ventilation. According to the IRK, a Co2 concentration inside the building of less than 0.1 vol% indicates a hygienic air exchange under normal conditions. CO2 traffic lights can accurately measure this value and are therefore a simple and effective solution for demand-based ventilation.
The remedy is Tecomon® – Connect
With the help of our Tecomon® technology, ventilation is even easier and more cost-effective. With our QR code linking, traffic lights can be linked to any device at any time. All you have to do is scan the QR code on the CO2 traffic light. The measurement is ready to go.
The visualization of the measurement is fully automatic and immediately visible in your browser. No installation is required, the only requirement is a web-enabled end device. No matter where, no matter when – you get your overview at any time and any place. And you can freely choose values, graphics and interface and individualize the display.
The CO2 traffic light from Tecomon is the first entry into building automation. It can be expanded as required with software, sensors and actuators. This enables it to be connected from room automation to the building automation system.
