CO2 Sensor

CO2_Sensor_-_Header_image.jpg

The Wireless CO2 Sensor periodically measures CO2 (ppm), temperature (°C/°F), relative humidity (% RH), and barometric pressure (Pa/bar) in the surrounding air and wirelessly transmits the result to nearby Cloud Connectors (gateways) via the SecureDataShot™ protocol. Cloud Connectors relay sensor data into the DT Cloud infrastructure. From here, data can be integrated into other services using our developer APIs or viewed directly in DT Studio

EU and US variants

This sensor is available in two variants, one for the EU and one for the US, due to different certifications, compliances, and wireless communication.

Activation
Activate the sensor by removing the battery tab. Nearby online Cloud Connectors will automatically start to relay data from the sensor to the cloud service.

Mounting
CO2 sensors are designed to be wall mounted at approximately 1-1.8m (3-6 ft) above the floor
(breathing height). Installing the sensor higher on the wall or in the ceiling can lead to measuring artificially low CO2 levels.

  • Mounting option 1, adhesive: Mount the sensor to a clean wall surface using the included adhesive backing. The adhesive creates a strong bond to the surface and can't be removed and reapplied once placed.
  • Mounting option 2, screws: Remove the mounting plate by sliding it downwards and mount the bracket to the wall using a screw. Please note: Screw and wall anchor are not included in the box.

Calibration & Settling Period
After the installation, the sensor needs 7 days to calibrate itself before the CO2 measurements are within the specification. CO2 levels might be artificially high within the first 7 days.

Factors that impact measurement accuracy

  • Because the sensor provides real-time measurements, the readings taken during installation can be artificially high.
  • Human breath within meters of the sensor can impact the CO2 reading.
  • Physically touching the device during installation can impact temperature and humidity measurements.
