NDIR CO2 Click Board
NDIR CO2 click is an advanced integrated CO2 gas sensor system, which is able to measure an absolute CO2 concentration, by utilizing the CDM7160 integrated sensor. This sensor is based on non-dispersive infrared sensing principle (NDIR), with two detection elements: one is used for detecting the wavelength of the IR light spectrum, affected by the CO2 gas, while the other detects the wavelength of the IR light spectrum not affected by the CO2 gas. The integrated MCU processes the readings and outputs the absolute CO2 gas concentration value through UART or I2C interface. Dual wavelength sensing method allows not only accurate absolute readings, but also provides immunity against dust pollution, providing consistent readings in corrosive atmosphere, variable ambient temperature, and over longer periods of time.
