Implementation of new Sensirion SEN-5X sensors

We made a firmware with SEN5X and we are testing 10 sensors, some emulate SPS30 and SHT3X
You can download the bin files on the /bin directory and flash the sensor with FalshESP8266.exe

I will give it a try! I already had a look at your project. Interesting…
I live very close to Schiphol (and the A9 highway.) I can even smell the jet fuel occasionally. There are only a very few stations in my area, so time to pay attention to pollution through a citizen project. (Although ‘fijnstof’ is not the biggest risk in my area…)

It works… (just a temp indoor setup to test the electronics / SW)
Thanks Fred (and the community of course ) !!!

Interesting to see the differences between the SDS011 and the SENS-55…

Hi fredvduin,
sadly the FlashESP8266.exe from your Github does not work. Using Win11 23H2

you need file esptool.exe

Thanks, that worked :slight_smile:

I will use your firmware for SEN55 too, since I have an urgent VOC monitoring problem in Zoutleeuw/Belgium, & I was expecting to have the latest release supporting the SEN55 by now, but clearly something intervened…
Thank you!
Can you supply me with one of your API # in test, I’m developing a display for sensor.community, and need to have an example of the JSON messages with SEN55 data, for testing, while I don’t have a meter with SEN55 myself now.
BTW, nice work, proficiat. I whish i was there already … (started in october 2023, aiming at having DNMS & a self-designed display working by now…)
And in the process, found out about the SEN55…

We use MQTT and is implemented in our firmware
Example

{
“SEN55_P0”: “4.98”,
“SEN55_P2”: “5.23”,
“SEN55_P4”: “5.23”,
“SEN55_P1”: “5.23”,
“SEN55_N05”: “33.82”,
“SEN55_N1”: “39.06”,
“SEN55_N25”: “39.14”,
“SEN55_N4”: “39.15”,
“SEN55_N10”: “39.16”,
“SEN55_TS”: “0.40”,
“SEN5X_temperature”: “23.13”,
“SEN5X_humidity”: “50.85”,
“SEN5X_NOx”: “1.00”,
“samples”: “2870”,
“min_micro”: “50069”,
“max_micro”: “99486”,
“interval”: “145000”,
“signal”: “-46”,
“SEN5X_VOC”: “96.80”
}

Monitoring VOC and NOx: MQTT => Mosquitto server => NodeRed => MariaDB => Grafana

@Rik_Drabs When using the SEN5x please remember that the VOC values are index values and only “valid” for a single location. With auto calibration this value may even not be comparable over a longer time even on the same location …

Where can I get a cable for SEN55 at a favourable price? I can only find offers on the Internet that are just as expensive with shipping as the SEN55 itself. The cheap solution of making a plug myself failed because it is too fine and small.

I have bought them from Ali

I have connected the SEN55 to Tasmota. I find this sensor rather disappointing. Supposedly there are almost or exactly the same values for the different particle sizes.

SEN5X PM 1 µm 1,9 µg/m³
SEN5X PM 2,5 µm 2,0 µg/m³
SEN5X PM 4 µm 2,0 µg/m³
SEN5X PM 10 µm 2,0 µg/m³

I switched on a hoover in a small room and the values go up, but remain very similar to each other.

SEN5X PM 1 µm 9,6 µg/m³
SEN5X PM 2,5 µm 10,5 µg/m³
SEN5X PM 4 µm 10,9 µg/m³
SEN5X PM 10 µm 11,0 µg/m³
