Sensirion has introduced a multi-gas, humidity and temperature module, the SVM30.
The module facilitates product development and sensor integration while offering flexibility for product design. The SVM30 is suitable for customers that prioritise lean development and products, and is appropriate for small and medium-size companies.
The SVM30 is optimised for easy design-in and sensing performance. The product is a multi-gas, humidity and temperature sensor combo module containing an SGP30 gas sensor as well as an SHTC1 humidity and temperature sensor.
The SGP30 gas sensor combines multiple metal-oxide sensing elements – the pixels – on one chip, thereby offering the possibility of measuring a total VOC signal (tVOC) and a CO2 equivalent signal with one single sensor chip.
The SVM30 also offers calibrated air quality output signals as well as compensation of humidity cross-sensitivity. The gas sensing element features unmatched robustness against contamination by siloxanes present in real-world applications, enabling long-term stability and low drift.
The integrated SHTC1 humidity and temperature sensor covers a humidity measurement range of 0 to 100% relative humidity and a temperature measurement rang of -20 to 85°c with a typical accuracy of +5% RH and +1°c.
The main application for the SVM30 sensor combo module is air purifiers, but it is also optimally suited for HVAC and other appliance products.
