The Wireless Air Quality Sensor is a combination sensor for air particles, Metal Oxide Gasses (MOx), temperature and humidity.
Metal Oxide Gasses
The sensor detects various Metal Oxide (MOx) gases, displaying the value as a VOC Index. Examples of these gases include: Acetone (paints and glues), Toluene (furniture), Ethanol (perfume and cleaning fluids), Hydrogen Sulfide (decaying food) and Benzene (Cigarette smoke).
The VOC Index is a logarithmic scale relative to the typical indoor gas composition over the past 24hours. With a range of 0 to 500, the typical value for a normal environment being 100. Values greater than 100 indicate a worsening air quality, with a higher concentration of metal oxide gases over the past 24hours. Values lower than 100 indicate improving air quality.
The sensor can detect 5 different sizes of particle: PM0.5, PM1.0, PM2.5, PM4 and PM10. The sensor can measure the mass concentration of particles in the PM1.0 to PM10 range and particle number concentration in the PM0.5 to PM10 range. The typical particle size is also measured. This measurement is based on the average size of the current sample.
The air particle sensor can be used during indoor air quality (IAQ) assessments of clean rooms and workplaces. The sensor identifies the quantity or mass of airborne particles present but not the specific type. These air particles could be sourced from exhaust smoke, airborne dust particles and pollen.
The Wireless Air Quality Sensor works with the AKCP Wireless Tunnel Gateway to reduce costly cable runs.
