Sensirion’s SCD30 humidity, temperature and carbon dioxide concentration sensor employs CMOSens Technology for IR detection, enabling highly accurate carbon dioxide measurement at a competitive price. Along with the NDIR measurement technology for CO2 detection, a humidity and temperature sensor is also integrated on the same sensor module. Ambient humidity and temperature can be output through modeling and compensation of external heat sources without the requirement for any additional components. Due to the dual-channel principle for the measurement of carbon dioxide concentration, the sensor compensates for long-term drifts automatically by design.
For evaluation of sensor applications, Sensirion offers 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 ControlCenter viewer software allows 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.
