Getting stated

  1. Operation on adapter
    • Plug the DC 5V power adapter into the power adapter input on the device. Plug the other end of the cable with the USB end into a power source (e.g. PC) or into the included adapter intended for electrical plugs. Operation on the adapter is necessary for continuous measurement of the CO2 value.

  2. Battery operation
    • Open the battery compartment and insert 3 new AAA alkaline batteries, paying attention to the correct polarity. If the device is powered by batteries only, the display will show temperature, humidity, time and date. There will be dashes in the CO2 value segment.
    • When operating on batteries, it is also possible to display the CO2 value for a short time.
    Press the DOWN button to start a countdown of 30 seconds, after which the CO2 sensor will be switched on. The CO2 value will be displayed for 1 minute and during this time it will measure the CO2 value 10 times. After that, dashes will appear again in the CO2 segment.
    This function is practical when you need to find out the CO2 value in the room at once.
    • After inserting the batteries and connecting the adapter, all segments will be displayed briefly and a beep will sound. Then a countdown of 60 seconds will take place to start the CO2 sensor, and then the temperature, humidity and CO2 values will appear on the display in normal mode.

    Then set the minutes and confirm again with the MODE button.

  • To turn on the alarm function, press the ALARM button to display the alarm 2 symbol to turn on the alarm 2.

  • When the alarm time is reached, an audio signal will ring for 1 minute with a gradually accelerating beep.

  • To turn off the alarm, press any button except SNOOZE/LIGHT. If you don’t press any button, the alarm will stop sounding after one minute.

  • If you press the SNOOZE/LIGHT button while the alarm is ringing, the backlight will turn on for 5 seconds and the snooze alarm will start for 5 minutes.

  • To return to normal mode, press the MODE button during alarm setting mode 2 or wait 10 seconds without pressing the button.

Display of MAX/MIN values

  • In normal display mode, press the UP button to display the MAX and MIN values of temperature, humidity and CO2 concentration for the given day.
  • In normal mode, hold the UP button for 2 seconds to clear the stored MAX and MIN values for the last 24 hours.
  • MAX and MIN values are automatically reset every day at 00:00.

CO2 concentration alarm setting

  • In normal display mode, the alert function is disabled. Press the ALERT button to turn on/off the sound alarm, the default set value to trigger the alert is 1000ppm. To adjust the alert value, hold the ALERT button for 3 seconds, the CO2 concentration value will flash (range 800 to 2400ppm).
  • Use the UP and DOWN buttons to adjust the alert trigger value and confirm it by pressing the ALERT button.
  • If the current value exceeds the alert set value, the alarm will ring for 1 minute. The alert symbol will then continue to flash on the display until the CO2 value falls below the alert setpoint, as will the fan symbol to indicate that the current value is higher than the alert setpoint. The fan symbol indicates that the alert value has been exceeded, regardless of whether or not the audible alarm is triggered.
  • We recommend not staying in an environment with a CO2 concentration higher than 1000ppm for a long time. If possible, ventilate the room if it is above 1000ppm.

Calibration of the CO2 function

  • The device is factory-calibrated to a CO2 concentration of 400ppm. After start-up, the new device must be placed in a well-ventilated area with a concentration of 400ppm for approximately 1 hour to successfully calibrate the sensor, provided that no manual calibration of the minimum measured value is performed during the 7 days of continuous measurement.
    1. Automatic calibration of the CO2 sensor

  • The device is equipped with a smart sensor, so it performs an automatic calibration to avoid inaccurate measurement, based on the lowest measured CO2 value in the last 7 days of continuous measurement.
    2. Manual calibration of the CO2 sensor

  • We recommend performing this calibration on a clear, sunny day with sufficient ventilation, when the CO2 concentration reaches approx. 400ppm. Do not calibrate in an environment with an unknown CO2 concentration!

  • Disconnect the device from the power supply and connect it again. Then hold the MODE and DOWN buttons at the same time for 3 seconds to enter the calibration mode. After the sound signal sounds and the message “CAL” is displayed, indicating the successful start of the calibration process, you can release the MODE and DOWN buttons. After that, the device needs 4 minutes for manual calibration.

  • If the process is successful, the message “PASS” will be displayed. Then the CO2 value will be displayed, now disconnect the device from the power supply again and connect it back.
    The device is ready for use.

  • If the process is not successful, the message “Err” will be displayed. If this happens, repeat the process again.
    Display and indication of CO2 concentration

  • The CO2 concentration will be measured every 6 seconds. A normal CO2 value is between 400 and 2400ppm. If the concentration falls below 400ppm, the value 400ppm will be displayed. If the value exceeds 5000ppm, the value 5000ppm will be displayed.

400-650ppm: good

  • The CO2 concentration is low, the corresponding symbol will be displayed.

651-900ppm: normal

  • The CO2 concentration is normal, the corresponding symbol will be displayed.

901-1650ppm: bad

  • The CO2 concentration is high, the corresponding symbol will be displayed.

1651-2400ppm: very bad

  • The CO2 concentration is very high, the corresponding symbol will be displayed.

Note on calibration

  • Do not calibrate on rainy days due to high humidity, which affects the concentration of CO2 in the air.
  • Do not calibrate in places with a high concentration of people, high CO2 or near fireplaces and vents.
  • When calibrating, keep the device away from people, animals and plants due to the risk of distortion.
  • Likewise, avoid contact with perfumes, paints, air fresheners, cigarette smoke, alcohol, chemicals, etc. All these substances can affect the measurement.
  • If the instrument measures a value that is not normal, calibrate the instrument.

Indoor temperature and humidity function

  • Temperature and humidity are measured every 30 seconds. If the temperature falls below the measuring range, LLL °C is displayed, if it exceeds the range, HHH °C is displayed. If the humidity falls below the measurement range, 20% RH will be displayed, if the range is exceeded, 95% RH will be displayed.

Setting the temperature unit

  • If the battery symbol appears on the display when running on batteries, it means that the batteries are dead and need to be replaced with new ones.
  • In this case, the message “LO” will be displayed instead of the CO2 value, indicating the need to replace the batteries or connect the power cable.
  • If you do not want to reset the settings of the device when replacing the batteries, it is possible to connect it to the power adapter before replacing the batteries in the device with new ones.

Note: To measure the CO2 concentration, the device needs a strong electric current, so for continuous measurement of the CO2 value, it is necessary to power the device using the supplied power cable (using a PC or mains adapter).
