The XENSIV_PAS_CO2_Power_calculator helps you quickly estimate the power consumption and arrive at the power budget when developing a product using the XENSIV™ PAS CO2 sensor.
Enter the Target power consumption in cell B4 of the Overview tab. This automatically list the sampling rate required to meet the target power in cell B5 of the Overview tab. For example, if the desired target power is 1 mW, the sampling rate is calculated as 210.24 s.
You can also do the converse calculation (power consumption for a given sampling rate). To do this, enter the sampling rate in cell I9 of the Overview tab. You get detailed estimates of the following parameters:
The Excel sheet also provides standard power numbers when the measurement frequency is every 10 seconds, 1 minute, and 1 hour (items 2 and 3 in the list above).
See Figure 1 for an example. See the Help tab of the XENSIV_PAS_CO2_Power_calculator spreadsheet for more information.
