Monitoring indoor air quality (IAQ) is an essential aspect of a smart (or any) building’s heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC ) system – especially as the sealing to minimize cooling or heating leakage has improved. One recent study found that well-ventilated offices with below-average levels of indoor pollutants and carbon dioxide (CO2) resulted in significantly higher cognitive functioning scores from workers. For those interested in developing monitoring systems for building automation devices as well as smartphones, wearables and home monitoring systems, ams AG has developed evaluation kits for its CCS811 and CCS801 gas sensor system-on-chip (SSoC) products.
The evaluation kits simplify the configuration and operation of the sensor system, as well as the logging and viewing of its measurements. Each kit consists of a sensor board with an I2C digital interface, a USB-to-I2C board and a USB cable. The board is supported by a free graphical user interface (GUI) for a PC based on the Windows® operating system.
