S8 Miniature 5% CO2 Sensor
The S8 Miniature 5% CO2 Sensor is designed to act like a safety switch for alarm applications where CO2 leak detection is required.
Thanks to a new optical path design, the S8 can accurately measure carbon dioxide levels up to 5%, yet it has less than a 30x20x10mm footprint and runs on only 30mA.
This sensor is designed for commercial applications. It provides simple communication via UART which lets you change the measurement period and control the ABC (Automatic Background Calibration) period in real time. Background and zero-gas calibrations are also implemented in a simple manner.
- Low Power, Small Footprint Design
- Automatic Background Calibration
- Industry-Standard UART Communication

Free Easy-to-use GasLab™ Software
This device uses GasLab® software for setup, calibration, data logging, and real-time data analysis. GasLab® makes it easy to export data into a .CSV file that can be imported into any industry-standard software or spreadsheet. GasLab® runs on Windows XP or higher, and free to use with our products.
After some help from support, the CO2 sensor started working and our experiments are running! The manual needs to be updated a bit, and I didn't manage to receive a key through e-mail (only through support), but once everything was solved there were no issues whatsoever.
