D105: Connecting a CO2 sensor

Carbon dioxide sensor

The universal device smart-MAC D105 can be connected to a sensor for measuring the level of carbon dioxide CO2, in common people "carbon dioxide". The measuring range for CO2 is 0-5000ppm (the number of CO2 particles per million air particles).

Wiring diagram:

Option 1.

  • pin 21 connect the white wire of the sensor to terminal 5: ADC
  • pin 22 connect the black wire of the sensor to terminal 1: GND (Ground or -5V)
  • pin 23 connect the red wire of the sensor to terminal 6: + 5V

Option 2.

  • pin 1 connect the white wire of the sensor to terminal 6: +5В
  • pin 3 connect the black wire of the sensor to terminal 1: GND
  • pin 5 connect the white wire of the sensor to terminal 5: ADC

Choose your smart-MAC D105 device

The CO2 sensor has an analog output at which the voltage varies between 0.4 - 2V for a CO2 level of 0-5000ppm.

Accordingly, the voltage at the output of the sensor varies within 1.6V, and 125 accounts for 3125 ppm.

In the "Arithmetic operation" section, select the function f (x) and write down the function for calculating the CO2 level in the units of measure you need:

ppm f(x):

d.ADC > 0.4 ? (d.ADC-0.4)*3125 : 0

% f(x):

d.ADC > 0.4 ? (d.ADC-0.4)*3125/10000 : 0


Set up notifications on the device and control the built-in relay.

To set up notifications on the D105 device and automatically control the built-in relay by CO2 level, you need to determine the formula for calculating the voltage at the analog input at the corresponding CO2 level.

Vout = ( ppm + 1250 ) / 3125

Where:
pm - CO2 level at which an alert should come or a relay trip;
Vout - voltage at the analog input, with the corresponding ppm.

Done!
