Trolmaster Carbon-X System CO2 Sensors and Stations: A Comprehensive Monitoring Solution

Introducing the Trolmaster Carbon-X System CO2 Sensors and Stations MBS, AS and DSE. This comprehensive monitoring solution is designed to control and maintain CO2 levels in up to 13 separate zones, while ensuring the utmost safety and compliance with local regulations. With user-selectable settings and remote monitoring via the TrolMaster app, the Carbon-X system is ideal for greenhouses, indoor gardens, and other commercial or residential applications.

Features and Benefits

  • Wide range of CO2 monitoring: Detect CO2 levels up to 30,000 ppm, with user-adjustable high and low level alerts.
  • Customizable device control: Carbon-X system can control ventilation fans, dampers, main CO2 valves and interface with fire/alarm panels for a comprehensive solution.
  • Remote monitoring and alerts: The TrolMaster app allows for remote access and real-time notifications when high CO2 levels are detected.
  • Audio-visual CO2 alarms: Each monitored zone requires an alarm to alert personnel of CO2 levels and occupancy safety.
  • NDIR CO2 Sensor: The MBS-K30 sensor features a 0-30,000 ppm range, built-in LCD display, and a self-aspirated enclosure for accurate CO2 monitoring.

How to Use

  1. Install the TrolMaster Carbon-X CO2 Controller (CDA-1) as the central control unit of the system.
  2. Place MBS-K30 sensors in each zone or room to be monitored, with one or two sensors per room as required by local regulations.
  3. Connect CO2 Alarm Stations (AS-1 or AS-2) to CO2 sensors, ensuring correct placement outside or inside monitored spaces.
  4. Wire the facility's main CO2 solenoid to the DSE-1 CO2 Emergency Stop Station for proper automated shut-off control.
  5. Configure settings for devices connected to the system, and customise high and low level alerts as per local regulations or personal preferences.

Aqua Gardening Suggests These are Best For

The Trolmaster Carbon-X System CO2 Sensors and Stations are ideal for commercial greenhouses, indoor farming facilities, hydroponic growers, and any large-scale or small-scale indoor gardens that require precise CO2 level monitoring and control. Its versatile and customizable features make it suitable for a wide range of applications and scalable projects.

Notes from Aqua Gardening

  • The MBS-K30 and AS-2 sensors require the SPH-1 for supplemental power.
  • TrolMaster controllers are compatible with most internet connections, but HughesNet/Satellite internet is NOT supported.


How does the Carbon-X system monitor CO2 levels in multiple zones?

The TrolMaster Carbon-X system monitors CO2 levels in up to 13 separate zones or rooms using its MBS-K30 CO2 sensors. Each zone can have one or two sensors installed to satisfy local code requirements. The system provides user-adjustable high-level and low-level alerts.

Can I adjust the high and low CO2 level limits for the Carbon-X system?

Yes, both high and low CO2 level limits are user-adjustable, allowing you to set them according to your specific needs and to comply with local regulations for supplemental CO2 use indoors.

How does the Carbon-X system control devices like ventilation fans, dampers, and main CO2 valves?

The Carbon-X system can be connected to various devices, such as ventilation fans, dampers, and main CO2 valves. The settings for each device are user-selectable for easy customization, giving you control over these devices in response to CO2 levels.

Is there an audio-visual alarm for each room monitored by the Carbon-X system?

Yes, each room monitored by the Carbon-X system requires an audio-visual alarm, such as the AS-1 or AS-2 CO2 Alarm Station. These alarms alert personnel to the CO2 levels in the area, indicating whether it is safe to occupy the space.

Can I use the TrolMaster app to remotely monitor the Carbon-X system?

Yes, the TrolMaster app allows you to remotely monitor the Carbon-X system and receive user alerts and notifications in case high CO2 levels are detected. However, note that HughesNet/Satellite internet is incompatible with TrolMaster controllers.

What is the range of the MBS-K30 CO2 Sensor?

The MBS-K30 CO2 Sensor can read CO2 levels up to 30,000 ppm, providing critical information for the safety of an emergency CO2 system. The sensor has an LCD display that constantly shows the current CO2 levels.

How does the Carbon-X CO2 Emergency Stop Station (DSE-1) work?

The DSE-1 CO2 Emergency Stop Station provides a simple method to shut off the CO2 supply when any fault or high CO2 level is detected. It is a 120V controlled outlet that supplies power to CO2 solenoid valves during normal operation. If any fault or high CO2 level is detected, the Carbon-X will automatically shut off the DSE-1 power. The power supply will also be disabled if the DSE-1 loses communication with the Carbon-X.
