|KANE100 meets test requirements for BS6230, BS6896 and BS6173|
The KANE100-1 handheld gas analyser measures and logs ambient carbon monoxide (CO) and carbon dioxide (CO2) levels.
It helps prove flueless gas appliances like space heaters, water heaters and kitchen equipment operate safely. If faulty or inadequately ventilated, these appliances generate high levels of harmful CO and CO2. With few exceptions, ambient CO levels must be below 10ppm. Flueless appliances also have manufacturer's recommended limits for ambient CO2 levels.
The KANE100-1 also measures CO and CO2 for indoor air quality (IAQ) checks. Inadequate ventilation and poorly working appliances will increase CO2 levels causing drowsiness and condensation. Although some laws allow up to 5,000ppm CO2 within and 8 hour period, IAQ professionals recommend no more than 1,000ppm CO2 at any time.
The KANE100-1 memory facility stores up to 255 sets of reading which can be logged manually or auto logged at 1 to 10 minute intervals. Results can be printed via an optional infra-red printer including a summary of average and maximum levels reached during the logged period.
The KANE100-1 measures CO up to 1,000ppm using an electrochemical sensor and CO2 up to 10,000ppm using a NDIR infra-red sensor. It has an easy to use rotary dieal, large backlit display, rechargeable batteries and long sensor life, making it ideal for domestic and commercial service engineers or IAQ specialists to confirm CO & CO2 levels in homes, offices, factories, schools, other public buildings and commercial kitchens.
The KANE100-1 is fitted with re-chargeable NiMH batteries and is supplied with a charger, protective rubber sleeve with integral magnet, sampling probe with hose, all in a carry case.
