AMo is a CO2 monitor for everyone. It shines in all environments be those public places, classrooms, offices, or your home. AMo’s simplicity is hard to beat. Plug it into any USB outlet and your personal CO2 monitor is on – zero configuration required.
CO2 monitor – AMo what?
As you might have guessed “AMo” is a play on words.
For one, it is an abbreviation for Air Monitor. On the other hand, in some latin-based languages it is used as a short form or alteration for “amor(e)” (love) in expressions such as “Te amo!” (I love you).
That is to say that we love our AMo CO2 monitor – and so do for example the teachers and students whose classroom features one.
P.S. Yes, we know, in Italian “amo” also means fish hook. And it’s the name of a Nigerian language. And possibly a number of other things 🙂
More than plastic
The AMo sits on a wooden socket and it is held in place by two magnets on the back. The socket looks like a small bench for the AMo. It is hand-crafted out of Swiss larch and treated with natural oil.
SCD4x CO2 sensor explained
The Sensirion SCD4x CO2 sensor built into the AMo is one of a kind. It is a next generation miniature CO2 sensor that offers an unmatched price-to-performance ratio. It operates on the NDIR principle (nondispersive infrared) that is the foundation of many types of high-performance gas sensors. The photoacoustic sensing principle – depicted below – allows for the extreme miniaturization unique to the SDC4x. For an in-depth explanation please refer to the manufacturer data sheet.
Most importantly, AMo customers directly profit from a number of key features the SCD4x has which other NDIR CO2 sensors lack. Note that non-NDIR sensors are not even considered as their main selling point these days is usually the price.
