CO2 detector

ESSE-12 sensor for ventilation control


  • Automatic Baseline Correction (ABC) CO2 Transmitter
  • Wall-Mount HVAC and IAQ Transmitter
  • Low Maintenance – Saves Money
  • Industry Standard Design

The ESSE-12 eSense is a cost-effective carbon dioxide transmitter designed to be installed in areas like office buildings or classrooms where carbon dioxide levels are monitored to determine occupancy levels for energy savings and indoor air quality.

The default eSense is normally maintenance free thanks to the built-in self-correcting ABC algorithm (Automatic Baseline Correction). This algorithm constantly keeps track of the sensor’s lowest reading over several days and corrects for long-term drift.

Designed with industry-standard outputs, the eSense II is the foundation of a complete demand controlled ventilation system. Studies show that demand controlled HVAC systems using CO2 transmitters can save up to 50% of energy costs as well as improving comfort for the occupants.
