Measure indoor air quality with the PiicoDev® Air Quality Sensor - a multi-gas sensor that uses intelligent on-chip algorithms to directly output rich, easy-to-understand environmental data like internationally recognised Air Quality Index (AQI-UBI).  The onboard ENS160 measures Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), Equivalent CO2 (eCO2) which are commonly used in the HVAC industry to control ventilation. Use PiicoDev adapters and cables for solder-free connections and follow the getting-started guide to begin programming this sensor in MicroPython with your favourite development platform.

The sensor generally requires a 3-minute warm-up before use (longer if it's the first-ever power-up) to obtain accurate data. Long-term stability is ensured by the built-in automatic baseline correction algorithm.

Features

  • Intuitive output: Air Quality Index
  • Measures VOCs and eCO2
  • A great guide to get you started
  • PiicoDev connector, compatible with Qwiic and STEMMA QT (3.3V only)
  • 2.54mm breakout for breadboarding/prototyping
  • Manufactured and supported in Australia by Core Electronics

PiicoDev Overview

PiicoDev is a ecosystem designed for rapid prototyping and maker education. The range includes:

Here are some of the features we have baked into PiicoDev:

  • Unified MicroPython libraries. The same MicroPython code examples will work on all supported platforms.
  • Simple-and-expandable connections. Modules can be connected using a 4-pin connector and daisy-chained to expand projects.
  • Breakout pins. Every module has a breakout section for optional advanced uses.
  • Consistent size. We have taken care to ensure modules are consistent sizes so that they easy for 3D printing cases, stacking and experimenting with.
  • Creative freedom. Simmer all of these features together and you end up with lots of creative freedom while still being a hands-on electronics experience.

PiicoDev electronics modules are designed and manufactured in Newcastle. They are priced for makers and education alike (affordable!). Get in touch with us if you have any questions.
