    For Better Air in Classrooms and Offices

    Do you still remember your schooldays? Following a lesson in mathematics, the air in the classroom was stale and stuffy. This problem has grown worse today as law requires many buildings to be airtight, meaning basic ventilation no longer exists. This “Meine Raumluft” an independent platform whose aim it is to improve the quality of indoor air wishes to change. In its project involving 100 Swiss classrooms the quality of room air was measured using CO2 displays from Rotronic.

    Air humidity and temperature under control

    The largest archaeological museum in Switzerland – the Laténium in Neuchâtel – stores more than half a million artefacts from the Neanderthal era to the Renaissance. The worst enemy of all these ancient relics: variations in air humidity and temperature! The museum, which is not air-conditioned, has used probes to monitor the climate on its premises since 2001. Since they were outdated, they were replaced with Rotronic probes – ultra-precise “high-tech spies” that are connected to special software to enable control of all glass cabinets, exhibition rooms and storage areas. In other words, perfectly monitored energy efficiency.
