Sensirion has introduced its latest innovation, the SCD40, the first miniaturised CO2 and RH/T sensor that fits in a space of just one cubic centimetre.
The new sensor from the Switzerland-based company is based on the photoacoustic sensing principle and combines minimal size with maximum performance to open up integration and application possibilities.
The SCD40 is well suited for high-volume and cost-sensitive applications, for markets such as IoT, automotive, HVAC, appliances and consumer goods.
With dimensions of 12 x 12 x 7 mm3, the SCD40 footprint has been miniaturised by a factor of five compared to its predecessor, the SCD30.
The SCD40 CO2 and RH/T sensor leverages Sensirion’s environmental sensing expertise by incorporating a humidity and temperature sensor that delivers two additional sensor outputs.
CO2 sensors play an essential role for indoor air quality monitoring and can be integrates in IAQ monitors, air purifiers and smart thermostats.
Sensirion will unveil its latest technology at this year’s Sensor+Test 2019 in Nuremberg and SensorsExpo 2019 in San José.
