SCD30 I2C

Software to read out Sensirion SCD30 CO₂ Sensor values over I2C on Raspberry Pi.

This software is licenced under GPLv3 by UnravelTEC OG (https://unraveltec.com), 2018.

Prerequisites

You might need to run the following commands as root e.g. by typing sudo before running a specific command.

Enable I2C interface on Raspberry Pi

raspi-config navigate to P5 I2C and select <Yes>.

Wiring SCD30 to Raspberry Pi 3 B

  • SCD30: RX/SDA -> Pi: I2C1 SDA (GPIO2)
  • SCD30: TX/SCL -> Pi: I2C1 SCL (GPIO3)
  • SCD30: VIN -> Pi: 3.3V/5.5V (use one of PWR pinouts)
  • SCD30: GND -> Pi: GND (use one of GND pinouts)

Python

Install the following python-libraries:

aptitude install python-crcmod

(for Python3, use the appropriate prefix)

Pigpiod

As the SCD30 needs complex i2c-commands, the Linux standard i2c-dev doesn't work. A working alternative is pigpiod.

aptitude install pigpio python-pigpio

Atm, IPv6 doesn't work on Raspbian correctly with pigpiod, so:

sed -i "s|^ExecStart=.*|ExecStart=/usr/bin/pigpiod -l -n 127.0.0.1|" /lib/systemd/system/pigpiod.service
systemctl restart pigpiod
# Test (should return an int)

I2C Clock stretching

Master needs to support Clock Stretching up to 150ms. The default in Raspbian is too low, we have to increase it:

To set it, download from here:

https://github.com/raspihats/raspihats/tree/master/clk_stretch

Compile:

gcc -o i2c1_set_clkt_tout i2c1_set_clkt_tout.c
gcc -o i2c1_get_clkt_tout i2c1_get_clkt_tout.c

execute (add to /etc/rc.local to run on every boot):

./i2c1_set_clkt_tout 20000 # for 200ms

Remember: Maximum I2C speed for SCD30 is 100kHz.

Run program

You might need to run the following as root e.g. by typing sudo before running the script.

For a one-time output:

python scd30-once.py

installing as a service

./install.sh

the service writes a file /run/sensors/scd30/last and updates it every second (which resides in RAM) - it is meant to be read out by prometheus.

To use pressure compensation, provide the pressure in a file named e.g. /run/sensors/bme280/last - for details see the source code in the service.py
