Environment Sensor Special contents
  • Heatstroke Risk Levels*1

    Heatstroke risk level is determined by air temperature and humidity.
    Users can estimate the risk of heat while performing day-to-day activities.

    Danger
    31°C or above
    (88°F or above)
    Dangerous heat for all activities.Especially dangerous to senior citizens, even if they are just resting. Avoid going outside and stay indoors in cooler places.
    Severe warning
    28°C – 31°C
    (82°F – 88°F)
    Dangerous heat for all activities.Stay out of the blazing sun and be aware of indoor ambient temperature rise.

  • Discomfort Index
  • Seismic Detection

    The sensor uses Omron’s unique spectral intensity (SI) value calculation algorithm to distinguish between seismic activity and other movements. The sensor data can be used to map damage conditions by area.

    Sensing Technology
    [ Correlation between SI value and measured seismic intensity scale ]
    Formula
    SI value (or spectral intensity):
    SI value is equivalent to the magnitude of the destructive energy imposed by seismic motion on structures. SI value has a high correlation with the seismic intensity scale which helps identify seismic hazards in your vicinity.
  • Correlation between SI value and measured seismic intensity scale Reference example
  • VOC Detection

    The sensor allows eTVOC*2 reading which refers to the total concentration of volatile organic compounds to help users realize the importance of maintaining a comfortable environment.

    Sensing Technology
    [ Operating principle ]
    VOC Detection Operating principle
    • Oxygen is adsorbed onto the surface of metal oxide.
    • When VOCs are emitted into the atmosphere, the gases react with the absorbed oxygen, changing its absorbed amount on the surface.
    • The change in the amount of absorbed oxygen eventually increases or decreases the surface conductivity. This mechanism allows the sensor to detect VOC gases.

    Note. VOC sensor does not identify gas types. Only outputs the total concentration of VOCs.

  • VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds):
    VOCs include such as alcohol consumption, cigarette smoking, and formaldehyde.
    eTVOC*4 (equivalent Total Volatile Organic Compounds):
    eTVOC refers to the total concentration of volatile organic compounds in a room environment.
    VOC Detection
  • *1. Information for heat stroke and discomfort index are only guidelines to be used for air conditioning and physical condition management. An individual difference and physical condition will greatly affect an individual feeling. Sensor output is not to be used for determining the presence of symptoms. Use only as a guideline. Warning levels for heat stroke may not be the same as those issued by public institutions.
  • *2. Excerpt from the Ministry of the Environment website Heat Illness Prevention Information about the “heat stress index (WBGT)”
  • *3. The Wet Bulb Globe Temperature is a measure of the heat stress in direct sunlight that can be used to monitor environmental and working conditions and is the basis for an international standard (e.g. ISO)
  • *4. eTVOC (equivalent Total Volatile Organic Compounds) refers to the total concentration of volatile organic compounds in a room environment. Output TVOC values will be higher or lower depending on the type of volatile organic compound. Also, if continuously operated in high-temperature and high-humidity environments, sensitivity for eTVOC values may decrease.
