Air quality sensor helps cut power consumption
The SGP40 indoor air quality sensor from Sensirion is now being shipped by distributor Mouser Electronics.
This indoor air quality sensor is an integrated CMOSens sensor system on a single chip based on a metal-oxide sensor.
The sensor provides a humidity-compensated indoor air quality signal via a digital I2C interface.
SGP40 uses Sensirion's MOXSens Technology, which offers robustness against contamination by siloxanes and results in long-term stability in terms of sensitivity and response time.
Using sensing material and micro-hotplate technology, the SGP40 offers a drastic reduction in power consumption, making it suitable for battery-driven applications.
Applications for the Sensirion SGP40 include air purifiers, kitchen hoods, demand-controlled ventilation, thermostats, and indoor air quality monitoring.
