Learn how to build a particulate sensor from COTS electronics components. The idea and firmware have been developed by Open Knowledge Lab Stuttgart (OKLS) and adapted many times such as this time by Ulib from MuMaLab.

The electronics can be plugged together by Dupont connectors and/or manually crimped original cables from the SDS011 sensor. All electronics components are provided by the workshop organizer for a small donation (costs are about 25€) but are limited to 10 participants. Please write an email to if you want to register for the workshop.

What is included:

  • NodeMCU v3
  • BME280 sensor for temperature, humidity, air pressure
  • SDS011 particulate matter sensor for PM10 and PM2.5
  • Dupont connectors
  • small air intake hose

What to bring on your own:

  • Micro-USB-cable
  • small USB-ac-adapter (250 mA is more than enough)

Not included or only in very limited numbers

  • case to protect the electronics from rain (OKLS design use grey HT-Plastic-Pipes in a U-shape which can be bought in almost any hardware store and are ugly but cheap and effective)
