Sensors / Gases PRO Board:

» GP 16: Cl2

This is the basic code to manage and read the chlorine (Cl2) gas sensor. The concentration and the enviromental variables will be stored in a frame. Cycle time: 5 minutes

Required Materials

1 x Waspmote
1 x Battery
1 x Gases PRO board
1 x Temperature, Humidity and Pressure sensor BME280
1 x Cl2 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 technical guide.
Cycle time: 5 minutes
