Co2 sensor connexion and calibration



  • Hello,
    I am trying to make my co2 sensor module work.
    The CO2 module can be found at the following link: http://www.ebay.com/itm/CO2-Carbon-Dioxide-Sensor-Module-TGS4161-Voltage-Probe-/311429272431
    So far, I only found the datasheet of the inner sensor and not of the whole module:
    0_1484124919516_HOT-A1-00069 (5).rar
    I set the conversion curve to be : EMF[350ppm]-EMF[xppm]=M ln(PCO2[xppm]/PCO2[350ppm] then retrieved the linear factor M from the datasheet curve of the inner sensor . M turned out to be equal to 27.62.
    The conversion equation became:
    𝐸𝑀𝐹[π‘₯]=𝐸𝑀F[350]βˆ’27.62 ln⁑(π‘ƒπ‘π‘œ2[π‘₯]/350) where EMF[350] is the voltage given in ambiant air (350 ppm of CO2).
    Now I am struggling to find the value of EMF at 350 ppm CO2. I connected my sensor module to Vcc=5V and to ground . Then i tried to measure Aout.
    Everytime I connect the sensor it gives a different value!
    Shouldn't this be constant since the air contains the same CO2 concentration ? In the datasheet they say that we should expect 220mV-490mV. Is this after the amplifier or before?
    I have been stuck on this for days. If you can please help me.
    Thanks
