Solenix Pet Project: the Air Quality Sensor20 March 2018

Since the end of February, a new installation is monitoring the air quality in the Solenix’s Software Engineering Team’s office. The USB-based sensor measures the volatile organic compounds (VOC) in the air, which are the major culprits of “stuffy air”. These are created, for example, by humans and computers, indispensable in a working environment, but also by carpets or cooking. The values measured by the sensor are displayed in an easy to read graph shown in a touchscreen.
