But the air quality is not the same everywhere. Pollution can accumulate in isolated places, for example near industry or a busy road, local sources can contribute to generally poor air quality. Moreover, the weather conditions of a region also play a role in air quality.
It is important for us to observe what is happening, as different areas have different levels of air quality at different times. This way we can identify problem areas and ensure that we are taking the right measures so that we can enjoy the cleanest air possible.
The particle sensor can be used to get the number of suspended particles, that means particle concentration and it was a kind of universal digital particle concentration sensor that could output them as a digital interface.
We can measure many values including TVOC, CO2, Temperature, Humidity, PM10, PM2.5 (Particles from 2.5 microns to 10 microns), 2.5ppm – 10ppm particle measurement, Temperature, Humidity, CO2, TVOC Measurement of the quality of air, Dust, Formaldehyde .
The module uses a fan to suck in air. The particle size classifier separates particles larger than 10 µm from the air stream, then passes them through a filter to collect particles smaller than 10 µm to obtain PM10. The filter can be used to determine formaldehyde, carbon dioxide and TVOC levels.
Finally, the data is processed and then tracked on our Controlix platform.
