Acal BFi’s new partnership with gas-sensor specialist, Cubic, will provide high-performance, customisable products and solutions to the rising demands of the air-quality-monitoring marketThe composition of the air directly affects everything it comes into contact with – from local environments to industrial processes, human health to global climate change. Forecasts predict that within the next three years, the air-quality-monitoring market will be worth an estimated $5.6 billion, with a Compound Annual Growth Rate of 8.5% from 2016 to 2021, as individuals, businesses and governments alike take steps to improve our environment.

Wuhan Cubic Optoelectronics Co.,Ltd (Cubic) are one of the world’s leading manufacturers of pioneering gas-monitoring solutions, principally non dispersive infrared (NDIR) CO2 sensors, laser particle dust sensors, and indoor and outdoor quality gas-sensor modules. Their state-of-the-art research, development and production facilities are ISO9001 and IATF16949 (automotive) accredited, and more than 60 patents protect this innovative technology.

A huge range of applications around the world already benefit from their patented technology, including smart air purifiers; heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems; automotive cabin air conditioning systems; smart homes; and smart agriculture.

Demonstrating their commitment to the air-quality market, they annually invest more than 10% of their turnover in the development of the next generation of gas-sensing solutions – a key factor in Acal BFi’s decision to partner with Cubic.


As Cubic’s sole European technical partner, Acal BFi can now offer unrivalled air-quality-monitoring solutions that go beyond a product

Cubic have the capability to fully customise their products with other sensors from Acal BFi’s range. Additionally they have the expertise and flexibility to add wireless technologies, including Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and LoRaWAN, to customer designs, enabling fast wireless deployment of a data-critical quality monitoring.
