Where can I find a CO2 sensor that will allow me to measure the concentration in a small space? Answered

I'm doing an experiment where I'll be burning a candle in a closed box, and measuring the concentration of the carbon dioxide in the air. I need to be able to record a value for the concentration of the CO2. What's the best way

How about here: http://www.futurlec.com/Gas_Sensors.shtml ?
You'd need to calibrate it also, not going to be easy really, so best wishes.

Click on the "Datasheet", but it's not go the right range, and it'll read CO too. See other comments below. (No easy answers) L

How/ what do I hook that sensor up to in order to get a reading?

Do you know what concentration you expect? Look for "CO2 sniffer" in Google, and one of the sponsored hits is to a company that sells portable (personal safety) montors that go down to 5 per mil (5000 ppm). They've also got analyzers (static samples, not continuous monitoring) up to 60%. You will find lots of other good hits, so you can evaluate price/performance/company-relability yourself.

Ah no that's no good, only goes up to 10,000ppm. Using an infra-red absorption technique might be better, but you've got other problems there... L
