Suggested Application Scenarios

As a CO2 sensor with a wide temperature range and affordable price, this sensor exhibits low power consumption, fast response speed, and the ability for long-term online monitoring. It is suitable for low-cost applications where high precision is not required, such as monitoring CO2 levels in small indoor rooms or DIY projects.

As a high-precision CO2 sensor, it is well-suited for applications that require accurate measurements of CO2 concentration in environments where the concentration levels are not excessively high. Examples of such environments include smart homes, classrooms, or offices where indoor air quality monitoring is of utmost importance.

As a high-precision and wide-ranging CO2 sensor, it is suitable for applications that require measuring high concentrations of CO2 with exceptional accuracy. Examples of such environments include chemical laboratories, agricultural greenhouses, and monitoring production processes in industrial settings.

This sensor with its "tripartite integration" functionality and long operational lifespan is well-suited for applications that require simultaneous measurement of CO2, temperature, and humidity. Examples of such application scenarios include indoor air quality monitoring, greenhouse detection, smart homes, and control of air conditioning systems.
