Brand-new instrument for the measurement market, a small sensor that can measure: Temperature, Humidity, Pressure and VOC. Bocsh made VOC measurement new in the sixth series
Sensor parameters and its form factor were also slightly changed.
Package: 3.0 mm x 3.0 mm x 0.93 mm metal lid LGA
IAQ range: 0-500
Humidity range: 0-100%
Pressure range: 300-1100 hPa
Temperature range: -40-85°C
Is there any point in using this sensor in your DIY?
Let us look straight to the CONS of this sensor:
- Current consumption when measuring VOC is 18mA, which is a lot for low-power devices
- The sensor must work for at least 30 minutes to normalize VOC measurement
- Complex logic in converting resistance to VOC, however this can be solved using the API sensor.
Thus, if you do not create a low-power device, you get a compact sensor that can measure 4 parameters.
To test this sensor, we created a prototype module, according to the datasheet and after a month of testing, we can conclude: You can use bme680 when you are limited in space, in other cases we recommend using bme280 in conjunction with CCS811.
