GE to Provide Sensors for PureChoice Energy Conservation System

March 12, 2009

The Telaire Dual Beam CO2 sensors will enable the PureTrac building-performance solution to improve energy efficiency by 15% to 20% without capital improvements.

BILLERICA, MA /BUSINESS WIRE/ -- GE Sensing & Inspection Technologies announces a contract with PureChoice Inc. of Burnsville, MN, to provide 50,000 Telaire Dual Beam CO2 sensors as part of the company's PureTrac Building Performance Software offering. The PureTrac system provides a simple, cost-effective solution to improve energy efficiency in existing buildings by 15% to 20%, without compromising indoor air quality or requiring additional capital improvement costs.

"We purposefully selected GE because they design the highest quality CO2 sensor available," said Bryan Reichel, CEO, PureChoice. "Ensuring accurate CO2 measurements is an absolutely critical part of the process for any building manager looking to ensure an energy efficient building environment. If you can't measure it, you can't manage it."

GE Sensing & Inspection Technologies will provide the 50,000 sensors to PureChoice over the next 18 months for use in the company's Nose Monitor. The Nose Monitor is a compact, automated data collection and analysis platform for measuring indoor air quality parameters in any conditioned space. Microprocessors control the operation of all sensors, including thermal regulation, initial setup and calibration, conversion to engineering units, digital messaging, and data transfer. All Noses include a miniature circulating fan to ensure the accuracy of the sensors' readings by exchanging the volume of air within the Nose several times per minute. All sensors have been mounted in a single printed circuit board, installed into a durable yet discreet thermoplastic housing.
