Rutronik Adapter Board – RAB2 for CO2 detection incorporates latest generation sensors from Infineon and Sensirion.
Rutronik System Solutions expands its product portfolio with the new RAB2 adapter plate for CO2 detection. The board offers a unique approach using CO2 sensors, pitting two state-of-the-art sensors from Infineon and Sensirion against each other. This allows a board to be used in the pre-development phase to evaluate which sensor is best suited for a specific application. As a result, the time to market for applications that require CO2, relative humidity, and temperature measurements is greatly shortened.
CO2 measurements play an increasingly important role in application development. Thus, for example, there is a significant demand for smart sensors to measure indoor air quality. They guarantee real-time CO2 monitoring for ventilation systems, air purifiers and thermostats and prevent, among other aspects, excessive CO2 concentration, which can be harmful to health.
This is where the new Rutronik – RAB2 adapter plate for CO2 detection comes into play. Two state-of-the-art CO2 sensors, Infineon's PASCO2V01 and Sensirion's SCD41-D, are the core of the board. Both sensors work according to the photoacoustic measurement principle and are distinguished, among other things, by their compact design. The board makes it possible to test both sensors separately and compare them with each other in the pre-development phase.
This makes it easier for developers to evaluate which sensor is best suited for the respective application in the field of CO2, relative humidity and temperature measurement, and with which component further application development. Thanks to the combination of the components on a single board, it is possible to speed up the time to market.
Rutronik System Solutions' emphasis is to support customers in the pre-development phase. This saves resources and reduces time to market. With our adapter plate – RAB2 for CO2 detection, we address precisely these needs in an expanding market. By combining two advanced sensors on a single board, it is possible to easily perform tests and comparisons. Our board provides a reliable basis for deciding which component best fits the development of the final application, says Stephan Menze, director of global innovation management at Rutronik.
Flexible and expandable combination thanks to Arduino interface
Like the rest of the Rutronik System Solutions boards, the RAB2 adapter board for CO2 detection has an Arduino interface. This makes the board easy to combine with existing boards such as the RDK2, Rutronik Adapter Board – Text To Speech, Rutronik Adapter Board – HMS Anybus and Rutronik Adapter Board – RAB1 Sensorfusion, and incorporate them into a complex system. evaluation. Rutronik System Solutions experts also provide the corresponding software stacks. All the components that appear on the board are available in the Rutronik product offering. In this way, the distributor ensures that the components are available today and in the long term.
