PurpleAir with BME680 sensor
« on: May 27, 2020, 04:20:06 PM »
PurpleAir have been testing a new the BME680 sensor for the PA-II units. This new sensor adds a VOC Gas sensor to the equation.

Some chat on the facebook group is seen here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/purpleair/permalink/949906395466434/

I've managed to replace my BME280 with the new BME680 and is reporting Voc too.

Up and running well now.  added the IAQ chart from bosch as this is slightly different than the 2.5PM chart.

I installed the BEM680 sensor yesterday and it seems to be working well.

Hi, where is this PurpleAir display from?  All I have is the map interface.
Thanks
Jim

I installed the BME680 sensor into my PurpleAir.   It's working great with the VOC measurement.

Without difficulty I installed the BME680 in my PurpleAir PA-II-SD sensor with firmware v6.01

It has been up & running.

My Rochester MN sensor is in southeast Minnesota and the new VOC experimental sensor can be seen on this map link:

I installed the sensor in mine too, but I don’t think they are helpful because they were intended for indoor Ali.Numbers outside are consistently high.
