GP v30 02: NDIR gas sensors

This is the basic code to manage and read the NDIR gas sensor. These sensors include: CO2.

Required Materials

1 x Waspmote 1 x Battery 1 x Gases PRO board v30 1 x Temperature, Humidity and Pressure sensor BME280 1 x NDIR Gas Sensor [Calibrated]

Notes

- Remember to connect the battery to Waspmote for proper operation. - The connection of the sensor is described in the Gases PRO v30 technical guide. - Cycle time: 5 minutes
