The basic function – CO2 traffic light as a desktop or wall-mounted device
The integrated CO2 sensor in the EnoPuck CO2MIC continuously measures the CO2 content of the ambient air.
- If the measured value is below the limit values, the EnoPuck CO2MIC lights up green continuously.
- If the value of level 1 is exceeded, the color changes to yellow.
- If the value of level 2 is exceeded, the EnoPuck CO2MIC lights up in a strong red.
Levels 1 and 2 are preset at the factory, but can be set with our BL-PC-FLEX-2 software depending on the application.
Added value through integrated sensors – use in smart spaces
The EnoPuck CO2MIC has a large number of sensors, which make it particularly interesting for use in smart spaces in addition to its function as a CO2 traffic light. Here are all the sensors in brief:
• Sound pressure: 0 – 204.6 dbSPL
• CO2: 0 – 10,000 ppm
• Temperature: 0 – 50 ° C
• Humidity: 0 – 100%
In addition to the CO2 content, evaluate the air quality by additionally using the measured values of the rel. Evaluate humidity and air temperature.
• PIR sensor: 100 degree opening angle, range 3 to 5 meters
• Vibration: sensitivity 0.061 g
Use the evaluation of the integrated acceleration sensor for your room booking system. When it is set up on a table, the highly sensitive acceleration sensor detects shocks and vibrations at the place of installation. In this way you can see whether the workstation is actually occupied or whether it is available despite booking.
If you are wall-mounted, you can evaluate the signal from the motion detector (PIR) integrated in the top. With an opening angle of 100 degrees and a range of up to 5 meters, it reliably detects movements of people in the room.
• Brightness: 0 – 64,000 lux
Adjust the brightness at the workplace dynamically by using the measured value of the integrated brightness sensor. Our EnOcean DALI controllers, for example, are available for this purpose.
Please note that the measurement data with regard to the temperature and thus the rel. Humidity depend on the use of the LEDs, since the self-heating depends on the dim level and the duty cycle of the individual color channels.
We are currently working on a calculated temperature compensation in order to make the data usable as independently as possible. The function is available to you after testing via a firmware update.
The measurement of the brightness is made possible by the fact that the EnoPuck CO2MIC automatically switches the LEDs off and on again briefly when the measured value is to be transmitted.
The data is transmitted in the following standardized format:
Wireless configuration with EnOcean USB stick and PC software BL-PC-FLEX-2
Just like all our FLEX controllers, you can configure the EnoPuck CO2MIC very easily using the easy-to-use PC software BL-PC-FLEX-2. You can teach-in sensors with RPS telegrams (light switches, buttons and window contacts), e.g. to reset a time-controlled red display only when the window has actually been opened.
Together with the 16 timers of the EnoPuck CO2MIC, you can easily implement this type of time-controlled traffic light function.
Easiest assembly and commissioning
The EnoPuck CO2MIC is supplied with 12 V DC via the included plug-in power supply unit. It can either be set up on a flat surface as a tabletop device, or it can be used hanging on the wall.
