LuminOx O2 Sensor on Arduino

The LuminOx Oxygen sensor seems to be a pretty decent O2 sensor and easy to get setup and running.

PinDesignation
1Vs (+5V)
2GND (0V)
33.3V UART* Sensor Transmit
43.3V UART* Sensor Receive
 * 5V tolerant
Looks like it is 5V tolerant so you should not need a logic level shifter.

Wiring Up LuminOx O2 Sensor to Arduino

Fortunately wiring up the LuminOx O2 Sensor to an Arduino is super easy

In the code example below we will use pins 10 and 11 to communicate with the sensor. So you can wire it up as follows

sensor pin 1 -> 5V power
sensor pin 2 -> Ground
sensor pin 3 -> pin 10
sensor pin 4 -> pin 11

Arduino Code for LuminOx O2 Sensor

Should be able to just copy and past the code into the arduino editor and upload it.

#include <SoftwareSerial.h>

SoftwareSerial mySerial(10, 11); // RX (O2 Pin 3), TX (O2 Pin 4)

void setup() {
  Serial.begin(9600);
  mySerial.begin(9600);
}

void loop() {
 if (mySerial.available())  {
    Serial.write(mySerial.read());
    }
}

Open up the serial console to view the sensor output
