Environmental conditions have a major impact on well-being, health and comfort. Measurement of the various gases found in the air demands accuracy, reliability and repeatability.
About 90% of total world population resides in areas where air quality levels tend to exceed the levels suggested by the WHO.
The global air quality monitoring market reached a value of US$ 4.06 Billion in 2020, expecting to reach a value of US$ 5.98 Billion by 2026*

“In 2016 alone, according to the World Health Organization (WHO), some 249 thousand premature deaths were attributable to outdoor air pollution and another 83 thousand premature deaths were attributable to the use of solid fuels for household energy in the Americas,” per the World Health Organization. Now more than ever, it’s vital to have reliable, accurate sensing products assessing the air to alert to unhealthy and/or risky environments.
Honeywell delivers first-class sensors and switches with unrivalled service. From initial specification to delivery and after-sales support, our job is to ensure you receive the high-quality products you need, when and where you need them.
Factories, plants and warehouses contribute substantial amounts of pollutants and emissions, making air quality a critical global safety issue. Industrial processes upgradation, energy efficiency, agricultural waste burning control, and fuel conversion are important aspects to reducing pollutants which create emissions. Honeywell sensors and switches are designed to excel in these critical processes and applications. With their reliability and ability to thrive in harsh environments, Honeywell solutions can help reduce emissions and increase air quality around the world.
In homes around the globe, carbon dioxide is a key indicator for indoor air quality. With new energy standards and improvements in insulation, air quality can deteriorate due to ventilation. According to the EPA, “Inadequate ventilation can increase indoor pollutant levels by not bringing in enough fresh outdoor air to dilute emissions from indoor sources and by not carrying indoor air pollutants out of the home. High temperature and humidity levels can also increase concentrations of some pollutants.”
Honeywell offers many sensing and switch solutions to keep your home comfortable and improve the quality of your indoor air.
Numerous studies have indicated how indoor air quality relates to worker alertness and cognitive performance. Keeping healthy indoor air quality should be a priority in office buildings and the like. The EPA reported, “Three major reasons for poor indoor air quality in office buildings are the presence of indoor air pollution sources; poorly designed, maintained, or operated ventilation systems; and uses of the building that were unanticipated or poorly planned for when the building was designed or renovated.”
Honeywell solutions are forward-thinking – they provide accurate feedback on key environmental conditions that contribute commercial building comfort, for example particulate matter, temperature, humidity and gases including CO2.
Honeywell Gas Sensors Solutions
As an innovation-driven company, Honeywell has developed leading-edge sensing solutions to monitor and control air quality. From pioneering origins in university laboratories to the frontline of critical environments, Honeywell has a forward-thinking commitment to applying innovative technology to improve the quality of the air that surrounds us.
The AQ3 Series, available with and without a PC board, are the newest gas sensors from Honeywell. The sensors measure carbon dioxide, sulfur dioxide, nitrogen dioxide or ozone levels. They feature high resolution and a low detection limit. The custom-built low noise board achieves high accuracy ppb level monitoring.
Applications: ambient air quality monitoring
CRIR M1 CO2 sensor
The CRIR M1 Commercial Carbon Dioxide (CO2) sensor is a single-channel, non-dispersive infrared (NDIR) sensor. Maintenance free in normal indoor applications, the CRIR Series features small size, enhanced long-term stability, higher accuracy and easy integration.
Applications: residential and office buildings air monitoring and ventilation
Since its introduction in 2003 over 10 million ECOSURE carbon monoxide sensors have been installed in the field. For the manufacturers of CO detectors and fire detectors for use in residential or commercial environments, the ECOSURE CO sensor offers significant benefits through automation. The high-volume manufacturing process ensures excellent reproducibility and high quality.
Applications: CO and fire detection for residential and office buildings
The 5 Series has been designed to ensure optimal performance within the harsh environments of flue gas analyzers and combustion efficiency monitors. Sensors measure oxygen, carbon monoxide, nitric oxide, nitrogen dioxide or sulfur dioxide, along with a hydrogen-compensated carbon monoxide sensor.
Applications: emission monitoring
