PASPORT Breath Rate Sensor - PS-2187



The Breath Rate Sensor uses standard disposable dust masks and gives stable output even when exercising. Breath rate is measured by sensing the pressure changes inside the mask. Tubing from the sensor connects to the disposable pressure clips which fasten on the side of the mask.

Two Modes:

  • One reading every breath
  • Running average over last 4 breaths


  • Sensor Tubing
  • Pressure Clips (10)
  • Masks (10)
  • How It Works

    The Breath Rate Sensor measures breathing rate before, during and after exercise. This measurement is sent digitally to a computer or datalogger where it is displayed and recorded for analysis. The sensor detects each breath by monitoring the air pressure in a mask worn by the subject. The sensor determines breath rate by measuring the time between exhalations. It outputs two measurements: Breath Rate and Breath Rate Average.


    • 5 breath/minute to 60 breath/minute
