CO2 Sensor SEN0159: Initital Calibration

userHead cocosnuss 2018-07-24 16:50:46 4248 Views7 Replies
Hello everybody,

I have problems understanding what to do before the first use of the CO2 sensor. I found this instruction: https://www.dfrobot.com/wiki/index.php/ ... KU:SEN0159
Does that mean that I have to power the sensor with my microcontroller for 48 h before actually measuring something?

I appreciate any help, thanks!

To start, let the SEN0159 CO2 Sensor breathe in fresh air for initial calibration, ensuring accurate baseline readings. Then, fine-tune the zero-point calibration to get precise CO2 measurements.

One doubt regarding the same: Running 48 hours in a clean (say, as good as outdoors) is fine. But how do I get the second value (mV with respect to 1000ppm) as mentioned in https://www.dfrobot.com/wiki/index.php/CO2_Sensor_SKU:SEN0159?  I mean how to get a 1000ppm environment?

I don't think the second value is accurate for 1000 ppm. Rather, it's the pressure drop that occurs when the sensor goes from clean air (<400ppm) to 1000ppm air.
This value tends not to be different from sensor to sensor.
So it is a fixed value.

Thanks! What is the best way to power it for that time? I don't have a battery available so could I just connect it to my Raspberry Pi or my Adafruit Feather Wifi?
Yes, you can connect it to RPi or the Adafruit Feather Wifi
