ENVIRONMENTAL SENSORS

Welcome to the home page of Environmental Sensors of ams.

Here you find all resources (documents, drivers, evaluation software) related to environmental sensor products.

CCS801

The CCS801 is an ultra-low power analog VOC sensor for monitoring indoor air quality.

Here you find documentation (appnotes, white papers, user guides). For the datasheet please see the product page

 

The evaluation kit uses the USB-I2C dongle and the Windows Environmental Dashboard.

The hardware can be ordered.

Firmware

The firmware for 801 Eval Kit published here. Use the Windows Environmental Dashboard to upload it to the Eval Kit.

CCS811

The CCS811 is an ultra-low power digital gas sensor for indoor air quality, with an I²C interface.

Here you find documentation (appnotes, white papers, user guides). For the datasheet please see the product page.

The evaluation kit uses the USB-I2CIO bridge and the Windows Environmental Dashboard.

The hardware can be ordered.

Firmware

The firmware embedded inside the CCS811 is published here. Use the Windows Environmental Dashboard to upload it to the chip.

ENS210

The ENS210 is a Relative Humidity and Temperature sensor with I2C interface.

Here you find documentation (appnotes, quickstart, user guide) and example sources for an ENS210 driver. For the datasheet please see the product page.

The evaluation kit uses the USB-I2C dongle and the Windows Environmental Dashboard.

The hardware can be ordered.

Driver

There are two sets of drivers available for the ENS210. Both come as c source file with documentation and sample application using the driver.

There is a Linux driver (for the input subsystem), and a driver for small systems without and OS.

Evaluation Software

Evaluation Software for ams AG products. This software is intended to evaluate all functions of the desired product.

USB-I2C-DONGLE

The USB-I2C dongle is a small device with a form factor much like a USB flash memory. It can be inserted in a PC and then allows the PC to act as an I2C master.

The dongle is used in the evaluation kit of several environmental sensors of ams.

Here you find a user manual, the Windows driver (Windows 7 and 8, not needed for 10), and the firmware for the (micro controller on the) dongle.

Documentation

The user manual of the USB-I2C dongle describes installation (Windows, Mac, linux), hardware (power, pinning, firmware button), concepts (register and raw model, configuration, transactions, traces), and finally detailed usage (first commands, UART conventions, command reference).

Driver

The USB-I2C dongle is plug and play for Windows 10 and Linux. Windows 8 and 7 do require a driver.

Firmware

The micro controller on the USB-I2C dongle is pre-programmed with a firmware image. When features are added, later versions are published here.

WINDASHBOARD

The WinDashboard is a Windows application that supports monitoring and logging of sensor measurements. It also supports firmware updates for those sensor kits that have an embedded micro controller.

The WinDashboard is used in the evaluation kit of several environmental sensors of ams.

Here you find the user manual and a redirect to the auto-installer/auto-updater of the WinDashboard.

Evaluation Software

The dashboard is provided as an downloader; when running it it will download and install the dashboard.
