Infineon XENSIV PAS CO2 Sensor, Now Shipping from Mouser, Saves up to 75% Board Space

The Infineon XENSIV PAS CO2 sensor, available from Mouser Electronics, integrates a photoacoustic transducer — including detector, infrared source, and optical filter — plus a microcontroller for signal processing and algorithms and a MOSFET to drive the infrared source.

April 4, 2022 - Mouser Electronics, Inc., the industry's leading New Product Introduction (NPI) distributor with the widest selection of semiconductors and electronic components™, is now stocking the XENSIV™ PAS CO2 carbon dioxide (CO2) sensor from Infineon Technologies. Based on photoacoustic spectroscopy (PAS), the sensor uses a high-sensitivity MEMS microphone to detect the pressure change generated by CO2 molecules within the sensor cavity. The result is a significantly miniaturized CO2 sensor that offers space savings of more than 75% in end products compared to other CO2 sensors on the market.


The Infineon XENSIV PAS CO2 sensor, available from Mouser Electronics, integrates a photoacoustic transducer — including detector, infrared source, and optical filter — plus a microcontroller for signal processing and algorithms and a MOSFET to drive the infrared source. The integrated microcontroller converts the MEMS microphone output into a ppm reading, which is available either via the serial I²C, UART or PWM interface. The sensor measures a range from 0 ppm to 10,000 ppm with an accuracy of ± 30 ppm or ±3% of the reading.

The sensor's direct ppm readings, surface mounting capability, and simple design allow for fast integration into low- and high-volume applications such as smart home and building automation designs, demand-controlled ventilation, air purifiers, thermostats, weather stations, and personal assistants.

Schmalz Technology Development - The Right Gripper for Every Task

In order to interact with their environment and perform the tasks, lightweight robots, like all industrial robots, depend on tools - and in many cases these are vacuum grippers. These form the interface to the workpiece and are therefore a decisive part of the overall system. With their help, the robots can pick up, move, position, process, sort, stack and deposit a wide variety of goods and components. Vacuum gripping systems allow particularly gentle handling of workpieces, a compact and space-saving system design and gripping from above. Precisely because the object does not have to be gripped, the vacuum suction cupenables gapless positioning next to each other.
