At Forum Labo, March 28-30, 2017, Vaisala will introduce Indigo 201, a new host device for the GMP251 and GMP252 carbon dioxide measurement probes. Indigo 201 is the first product in a series of host devices designed to extend the functionality of Vaisala's existing and future Indigo-compatible probes. The Indigo 201 transmitter features an optional display, analog outputs and relays, and a wireless user interface that can be easily accessed from a smartphone, for example. This will make measuring operations much easier.
The new generation of associated probe, the Vaisala GMP251 has been designed for laboratories, life science incubators: agriculture, cold rooms; and demanding HVAC applications.
"Today, carbon dioxide is increasingly used, for example in refrigeration systems, because it is more environmentally friendly and has a lower impact on global warming than refrigerants such as CFCs, HCFCs or HFCs, " explains Maria Uusimaa, Product Manager at Vaisala. At the same time, it's important to monitor CO2 of these systems with reliable measures to ensure personal safety.
Wireless interface for greater flexibility of use
The Indigo 201 transmitter features a wireless user interface for easy configuration. Users can easily configure the host device from any WLAN-capable device, such as a laptop, PC or cell phone. A temporary display of Indigo probe measurement data is also available wirelessly.
The host device also reduces downtime, as the probe can be easily removed and replaced with a new one. Users can also calibrate the probe using the Indigo 201 transmitter.
Measurement results can be displayed on screen, or converted into different formats, such as analog output signals, and for relay activation. These features are useful in a variety of monitoring and control systems, and relays can even be used to build small-scale systems, for example to switch a fan on/off or activate an alarm.
