CO2-Controller 2000 cellVivo design

CO2-Controller 2000 cellVivo design

CO2 con­trol device to achieve a sta­ble, con­trolled increase of the CO2 con­cen­tra­tion with­in PeCon incu­ba­tors and CO2-Covers. The CO2-Con­troller 2000 cellVivo design can be used with all devices of the Incu­ba­tion Sys­tem cellVivo or Incu­ba­tion Sys­tem 2000.


  • CO2 con­trol device for the gen­er­a­tion of a defined CO2 con­cen­tra­tion and a sub­se­quent pressure-less sup­ply of incu­ba­tors and CO2-Covers
  • CO2 com­ing from a CO2 gas cylin­der is added to the ambi­ent air
  • A built-in CO2 sen­sor per­ma­nent­ly mon­i­tors the CO2 con­cen­tra­tion in the air stream and reports the value to the con­trol unit which oper­ates a pro­por­tion­al valve and reg­u­lates the amount of CO2 added to the air flow
  • A pump con­trolled by the con­trol unit pumps in ambi­ent air into the com­bined meter­ing cham­ber of the gas mea­sur­ing sen­sors in addi­tion to the con­trolled gas inflow of CO2. No need for pres­sur­ized air supply!
  • A Humid­i­fi­ca­tion Bot­tle (500 ml) is includ­ed in all PeCon oxy­gen reduc­ing con­trollers, com­pen­sat­ing the strong dry­ing effect of the added gas
  • Rec­om­mend­ed range for the CO2 set­point value from 0.0 Vol-% up to 20.0 Vol-%
  • Res­o­lu­tion of the CO2 dis­play: 0.1 Vol-%
  • Res­o­lu­tion of the inter­nal CO2 loop con­trol: 0.01 Vol-%
  • The com­mu­ni­ca­tion with a win­dows PC is car­ried out via the USB con­nec­tion which per­mits an easy updat­ing of the firmware
  • Built-in auto-diagnosis func­tion to detect and report fail­ures in tech­ni­cal components
