VOC Sensor

Sensirion, Stäfa, Switzerland, introduced the SGP40 broadband VOC (volatile organic compound) sensor that detects high-VOC events. The integrated CMOSens® sensor system on a single chip is based on a metal oxide sensor and provides a humidity-compensated indoor air quality signal via a digital I2C interface. An algorithm analyzes VOC events and maps them to a VOC Index that indicates to what extent the indoor air quality has deteriorated or improved.
