AQS 1 Ambient Ozone Monitor
The AQS 1 Ambient Ozone Monitor provides continuous real-time measurement of ambient ozone in air. It measures and reports data in 1-minute intervals with user selectable averaging, delivering highly accurate results with excellent correlation to US EPA reference analyzers. Suitable for use on a range of projects, including urban and national air monitoring networks, community exposure studies, and environmental impact assessments.
Continuous real-time measurement of ambient ozone in air
Measures and reports data in 1-minute intervals with user selectable averaging
Robust, weatherproof enclosure with solar shielding, suitable for use in most conditions
The AQS 1 Ambient Ozone Monitor is a compact air monitoring station designed to measure ambient ozone (O3) continuously and in real-time. Using Aeroqual’s patented sensor technology, the AQS 1 delivers very accurate measurements at a price that is well below traditional ambient air monitoring equipment, enabling deployment at a scale large enough to map ozone across large areas.
The AQS 1 is supported by a global distribution network, meaning you’re never too far from a skilled technician ready to provide assistance and spare parts. In addition, Aeroqual’s online training system is free to all our customers, meaning you can become an expert on your AQS system before it even arrives. Housed in a rugged, lockable weatherproof enclosure, it includes an embedded PC and full software system for remote technical support, data management and analytics.
What can it measure?
The AQS 1 can be configured to measure particulate matter (TSP, PM10, PM4, PM2.5 and PM1) and up to three gases (O3, NO2, CO, H2S, SO2, VOCs, CH4) simultaneously. Because it is modular, you may order the unit with just ozone, for example, and add PM or another gas at a later date (without returning to the factory).
The AQS1 now comes with the PCX Particle Module!
More mass channels simultaneously: PM1, PM2.5, PM4, PM10, and TSP mass measured as standard, with the same level of accuracy provided by our Nephelometer engine for a single mass measurement.
MCerts certified for PM10 and PM2.5: The PCX PM10 and PM2.5 are both MCerts certified (pending) so now users can get certified results for both channels simultaneously in one unit.
Key benefits of Aeroqual products
Industry-leading sensor technology
As sensor manufacturers, we know sensors inside and out and have unparalleled expertise in optimizing performance in real-world conditions.
Powerful software platform
Leveraging deep integration with our monitoring systems, we deliver software functionality unmatched by off the shelf data acquisition systems.
Using proprietary system diagnostics, we enable proactive maintenance with hassle-free services that virtually eliminate system downtime.
Who is it for?
Researchers and air quality professionals use the AQS 1 Ambient Ozone monitor to better understand the spatial and temporal distribution of ozone which is an important ‘criteria’ pollutant. Ozone formation and distribution is complex and strategies for reducing ozone must start with accurate mapping of the ozone problem.
Practical applications for the AQS 1 Ambient Ozone Monitor include:
Urban air monitoring networks
National air monitoring networks
Short term monitoring of ‘hot spots’
Environmental Impact Assessments
Community exposure studies: epidemiological studies, microenvironment, residential, schools, hospitals
In future, we will add new gas modules to the AQS 1 – to register your interest please tell us about your application.
