The STC31 is a chip-sized gas concentration sensor for high range, accurate CO2 measurements designed for high-volume production. The sensor is based on a revolutionized thermal conductivity measurement principle, which results in superior repeatability and long-term stability. This makes the STC31 the perfect choice for applications where reliability is key. Thermal conductivity technology has an ultra-low power consumption, even compared to low-power optical sensor. This makes it the ideal choice for battery operated applications, delivering top-performance at an absolute minimal power budget.
The sensor features a digital I2C interface, which makes it easy to connect directly to a microprocessor. The outstanding performance of these sensors is based on Sensirion’s patented CMOSens® Technology, which combines the sensor element, signal processing and digital calibration on a small CMOS chip. The well-proven CMOSens® Technology is perfectly suited for high-quality mass production and is the ideal choice for demanding and cost-sensitive OEM applications.
