Humidity, temperature and carbon dioxide concentration sensor module now available globally

12-07-2018 | Sensirion | Test & Measurement

The SCD30 humidity, temperature and carbon dioxide concentration sensor is now available worldwide through Sensirion’s distribution network. CMOSens Technology for IR detection allows highly accurate carbon dioxide measurement at a competing price. Along with the NDIR measurement technology for CO2 detection, a best-in-class humidity and temperature sensor is also combined on the same sensor module. Ambient humidity and temperature can be output by the company's algorithm expertise through modelling and compensation of external heat sources without the requirement for any additional components. Thanks to the dual-channel principle for the measurement of carbon dioxide concentration, the sensor compensates for long-term drifts automatically by design. The company's module provides accurate and stable CO2, temperature and humidity monitoring. This allows customers to create new solutions that enhance energy efficiency and simultaneously support well being. For fast and easy evaluation of a sensor application, the company provides the SEK-Environmental Sensing evaluation kit. The kit combines plug-and-play hardware with an easy-to-use viewer software (the ControlCenter) for in-depth evaluation. The viewer software enables display and logging of the sensor signals for multiple sensors connected to several SensorBridges on the same PC. The evaluation kit includes a Sensirion SensorBridge, all connector cables and various sensor samples.
