Span and zero values are used for the linear correction of the measured values. Zero parameter corrects the offset and span the sensitivity (gain).

You can set the zero and span correction for gas and particle measurements.

The adjusted values affect the measured values of the following Modbus register addresses.

To adjust the span and zero through the Modbus interface, use registers 0086h - 0097h.

Table 1. Modbus registers for measurement data
Address Description
0000h - 0006h Gas concentrations in parts per billion (ppb) with linear correction
0066h - 006Bh Gas concentrations in μg/m3 with linear correction

0008h - 0009h

0037h

Particle matter PM1, PM2.5, and PM10 in μg/m3 with linear correction

After making these changes, AQT530 outputs data corrected by these zero and span correction factors.

  1. Establish a connection to AQT530.
  2. Adjust the gain and offset of the parameters.

    For example, to adjust offset up by 100 ppb and sensitivity 1.2 times (120 %) higher, type:

    set o3_zero=100
    set o3_span=120
  3. To save the changes:
    write --really

    The new values overwrite the previous zero and span values.

Values without linear correction are available with Modbus registers 006Ch - 0075h.
