Questions about products

This unit has an automatic calibration process that sets the lowest value recorded in a week at 450 ppm, which is supposed to be achieved in the presence of fresh air. If, during a given week, the sensor has never been in contact with fresh air (including the absence of living creatures for 12 hours in a closed room), the calibration process cannot take place correctly. Also note that for this automatic calibration process to work properly, the sensor must be plugged in for 7 days straight.

To have your unit recalibrated correctly, please do the following

1. Use an extension cable instead of plugging the unit directly into your computer.

2. Plug your unit into a location where it will have power for a full week. The self-calibration process takes place every 7 days without interruption of power. When you shut down your laptop, the unit will stop receiving power and the recording and calibration process will start again each time.

3. During the 7 days of power, make sure your sensor has access to fresh air: this will be its baseline for calibration. Fresh air is outdoor air, or it can simply be placed in a room where no living beings are present for 12 hours. In other words, it should not be placed in a place where there are people 100% of the time.

REMARK: The DXC100 was designed for offices (which are usually empty on weekends) and homes (when, before the days of COVID, they were empty during the weekdays).

Humidity and temperature measurements are internal measurements, i.e. they are taken inside the case. Therefore, the temperature is higher inside the case than outside, and conversely, the humidity is lower inside the case than outside. These measurements must be accurate and inside the case, as they are used in the automated calibration process in the product.

In order to apply an offset to these measurements, one option is to use the mathematical channels available in QTenki to implement a new channel on which you have applied your 1-point compensation (i.e. an offset) to your measurements.

This is an entry point for a gas (CO2, O2, …) tube to allow precise calibration. The black part is the watertight cap to be removed to insert the tube. To release the hole (to remove the cap and then insert the tube, and vice versa), first pull the blue part outwards and hold it there. You can then freely remove or insert the cap and/or the tube.

    Traceable certificates

    1. You add the product and required certificate(s) to the cart and checkout.
    2. We receive your order and contact you by email to establish the required certification points (temperature, pressure, etc).
      Calibration: If your device is equipped with the 3-point user calibration mechanism, we will ask you if you wish your device to be calibrated by the laboratory when the certificate is issued.
    3. You confirm your requirements. From this point, the certificates are not refundable and non-modifiable.
    4. The products are sent to the lab. After up to 10 business days, certificates are issued.
    5. The certificates and the products are packed together and shipped.
