A python driver for plantower pms7003 pm sensor
A minimalistic python interface for PMS7003 sensor
The code reads PM values from serial port. Tested on Raspberry Pi, but it should work on any machine with Python and serial port.
Device description: https://aqicn.org/sensor/pms5003-7003/
To install the driver, simply do:
pip3 install pms7003
from pms7003 import Pms7003Sensor, PmsSensorException if __name__ == '__main__': sensor = Pms7003Sensor('/dev/serial0') while True: try: print(sensor.read()) except PmsSensorException: print('Connection problem') sensor.close()
The read function has an option of returning values as a dict or OrderedDict.
Usage example with threading:
import time from pms7003 import Pms7003Thread if __name__ == "__main__": with Pms7003Thread("/dev/serial0") as sensor: while True: print(sensor.measurements) # We're free to do computation in main thread a = 2**32 time.sleep(1)
