Senva’s sensible solution

Senva, a sensor manufacturer partnering with AB Controls in Australia, has released the TotalSense Series indoor environmental and air quality sensor. 

According to Senva, many industry professionals and politicians have shifted their focus and budgets towards implementing better filtration and purification methods such as UV lights, HEPA filters, ionisers, and other methods to keep schools and workplaces safe. However, the importance of measuring the effectiveness of these methods is often overlooked. 

Senva says TotalSense is the only IAQ sensor with integrated passive infrared (PIR) motion detection, allowing it to initiate ventilation upon occupancy, providing air exchanges the instant people are present (in addition to monitoring elevated CO2 levels). 

“This technology provides a faster trigger for ventilation than traditional methods,” says the company, “allowing for cleaner and safer indoor spaces while still saving energy.” 

Options available include PMX (particulate matter),TVOC (total volatile organic compounds): CO2, PIR, RH, ambient light, temperature. Units are available with display, warning light ring, and analog or BACnet/Modbus capability.
