     Indoor Air EP5000

Product description 

The EP5000 probe is designed to measure and control Indoor Air Quality (IAQ).

It allows continuous measurement of 13 indoor environment parameters: CO2, VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds), sulfurous odors, fine particles (PM10, PM2.5 & PM1), noise (peak and average), light (light intensity and temperature), humidity, temperature and atmospheric pressure.

It is one of the few probes of the market in the device format that provides so much information and a real global picture of the exposure to different environmental parameters and pollutants in indoor spaces! 

The EP5000 probe at the service of tertiary decree

The tertiary decree is an article of the ELAN law aimed at reducing the energy consumption of the French tertiary sector.
The objectives are ambitious: -40% in 2030, -50% in 2040 and -60% in 2050 compared to 2010.

Among the levers, the optimization of thermal regulation and ventilation (temperature regulation, air flow regulation, technical management of the building, ...) offer significant energy savings and a quick ROI.

The EP5000 sensor will thus allow to look for new energy savings by individualizing the set points and the thermal regulation according to the uses, presences, absences, night... and by adjusting the set points and the ventilation regulation according to the IAQ and the uses.

Decree No. 2019-771 of July 23, 2019 -- Article L111-10-3 (repealed)

Intended to improve indoor air quality in the buildings

NanoSense offers you two uses

Complete supervision indoor environment

The EP5000 probe can power a Cloud monitoring application using the LoRaWan protocol.

You will find the data measured and analyzed by the EP5000 probe, in real time, wherever you are.

Configuration recommended

Air quality improvement & efficiency energy

Make the ultra-complete choice!

This configuration allows you not only to measure the air quality of your buildings in real time, but also to ACT to improve it and optimize energy consumption.

Thanks to its numerous sensors, the EP5000 can control ventilation with respect to the physiological effects of IAQ and environments.

Its temperature sensor can also control heating and air conditioning.

Parameterization application

An ultra simple and intuitive Android application.

Thanks to the NFC* functionality of the sensor, the application allows you to display the latest IAQ values measured on a Smartphone.

Probe settings: Instructions according to use. 

The goal is to manage ventilation, heating and air conditioning to optimize productivity, health ... while optimizing energy consumption. 

For more information on the application, please consult the user manual.

NFC* = Near Field Communication allows the transmission of information from one device to another in an automatic way. 

A probe multi sensors 

The EP5000 is one of the most complete multi-sensor IAQ probes on the market (CO2, VOC, Ozone, NOx, Sulfurous Odors, Fine Particles, Noise, Light, Humidity, Temperature and Atmospheric Pressure)

NanoSense was the first IAQ sensor manufacturer to integrate VOC sensors. This allows for ventilation that ensures olfactory comfort, better productivity (cognitive functions) and better health in the long term.

NanoSense IAQ sensors can be connected to outdoor air quality sensors (one per façade) to visually inform when to open windows.

The EP5000 probes integrate ventilation controls either on exceeding multi-pollutant thresholds of CO2, VOC, Humidity, PM1, PM2.5 and PM10, or on exceeding physiological effect set points.

In summer, the EP5000 sensors can over-ventilate cool air during the night (Free Cooling)

A probe multi-communication protocols

The EP5000 probe works with different communication protocols depending on the constraints of the buildings in which it is installed. 

The main types of existing protocols: 

Radio Protocol

Operated network

Wireline Protocol

The communication protocols

LoRa technology allows to send a small amount of information to a receiver located at a distance between 5km (urban area) and 20km (rural area). The EP5000 LoRa sensors can work with operated or private LoRaWAN networks.

This is the basic version of the probe. An automaton interrogates the probes. With the smartphone application, it is possible to customize the address of the sensor, its speed etc.. The advantage of ModBus is that the bus length can reach 1.2km. A PLC retrieves the measurements and the ventilation (and even heating and air conditioning) settings and retransmits them to the actuators.

The sensor, thanks to a 0-10V command, can control an air damper, a Variable Flow Box (VFB) or the ventilation speed in continuous. Most CMVs have a 0-10V input. 

The 0-10V can be associated with LoRa, EnOcean or ZigBee radio communication to supervise the IAQ.

Several hundred manufacturers are members of the EnOcean Alliance. This radio protocol guarantees interoperability between the various products of these manufacturers. The EP5000 sensors continuously listen to radio telegrams from presence and window opening sensors, allowing ventilation, air conditioning or heating to be switched off when windows are opened and control thresholds to be adjusted according to occupancy.

The NFC (Near Field Communication) allows to set up the EP5000 probes probes thanks to with an Android smartphone. It is possible to set up non-powered probes. (in their packaging). All EP5000 probes have an antenna and NFC memory.

 KNX and ZIGBEE protocols will be soon available

A probe multi sensors compatible with all buildings. 

A probe multi protocols.

An installation quick and simple.

Protection of fragile people

Pregnant women, infants and young children, people over 65 years old, people with cardiovascular or respiratory diseases (such as asthma). 

Protect these vulnerable people by ensuring good indoor air quality, to avoid health problems. 

A probe for the

A probe that assesses the risks of viral transmission

The conditions of survival of the virus depend on the temperature and of humidity.

The risk of contamination depends on the occupancy density of the premises. 

The EP5000 probe can estimate the number of people in a room from of the CO2 measurement and the ventilation rate it controls. 

The EP5000 probe assesses in real time the risk of viral diffusion based on virus survival and occupancy density.

The effects physiological

The SMART algorithm IAQ

Some air pollutants enter the bloodstream through breathing and impact the brain, affecting cognitive function and productivity. Environments such as light, noise and temperature also affect productivity. These combined effects (pollutants and environments) are calculated by the EP5000 as part of the remediation control functions. 

The cocktail effect refers to the effects that can affect the physiological impacts of simultaneous exposure to several pollutants and environments.

The EP5000 probe integrates the "Smart IAQ"® algorithm that estimates the impacts of cocktail effects on humans and buildings. This algorithm allows to control the air quality on criteria of cognitive functions, health, sleep quality (bedroom) and building health (mold...).

The "Smart IAQ"® algorithm also compares indoor and outdoor air quality to inform the occupants to open the windows consciously.

The table below summarizes the physiological impact of the different pollutants and environments:


The SMART algorithm IAQ allows :

  • To express the IAQ in an intuitive and intelligible way (e.g. LEDs in front of before).
  • To compare IAQ and AEQ to warn by pictogram of the risk or whether to open the windows on the street side or the courtyard side.
  • Use the smart IAQ indices for supervision.
  • Use the smart IAQ indexes as a guideline for the control of ventilation.
