The blaze, which has resulted in many individuals being forced from their homes and is expected to continue throughout the 2023 wildland fire season (canada.ca), has also brought with it thick smoke/smog for Canada’s USA neighbors.

Tapping your foot anxiously, you glance at your airline ticket and the terminal noted on it. The flight will be boarding in a few minutes. As you look around, there are several other people waiting for this flight; it seems the plane is fully booked. You close your eyes and breathe in deeply, calming your nerves.

Airports must provide a controlled environment for their visitors, while allowing scheduled maintenance within a building that is operational 24/7. Additionally, they must offer a high level of security for their passengers, all while simultaneously moving those travelers and their luggage rapidly through the building, in a finite amount of time.
Generally, airports are large complex buildings divided into numerous areas, with a number of smaller units located within them. Building automation systems (BAS) are used within airports to monitor and control sensors for things like filters, temperature, air flow, and building energy usage.
Airport automation, put simply, is needed to help ensure safety for world travelers and efficiency for those who make it possible.

Dwyer recently released its new -S option for the Series CDT carbon dioxide and temperature transmitters. Built upon Dwyer’s standard carbon dioxide transmitter, the -S option has a front-facing LED that illuminates when the CO2 level exceeds 1,100 PPM.
This new feature addresses concerns raised by legislation, including California Assembly Bill 841 and Nevada Assembly Bill 257. California’s Assembly Bill 841 was signed into law in 2020, while Nevada’s Assembly Bill 257 was approved in 2021. These bills proposed several provisions governing indoor air quality in the public school system, including that each classroom will be equipped with a carbon dioxide monitor that: Continue reading “Monitor CO2 in Schools with the CDT-S Transmitters!”
