AQS 1 Urban Air Quality Monitor
The AQS 1 Urban Air Quality Monitor provides simultaneous measurement of multiple particle fractions (TSP, PM10 and PM2.5), nitrogen dioxide (NO2), and ozone (O3). 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.
Simultaneous measurement of particulate matter (TSP, PM10 & PM2.5) and highly accurate part-per-billion (ppb) detection of NO2 and O3
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 Urban Air Quality Monitor is a compact ambient air quality monitor that targets specific pollutants in the urban environment. It can be configured to measure the most common pollutants in the urban environment – nitrogen dioxide (NO2), ozone (O3), and particulate matter (TSP, PM10 and PM2.5), with the option to measure volatile organic compounds (VOCs) via an upgrade, if required.
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. At the same time its small size and lower price enables networks of greater density. By using this tool air quality professionals can gain new insight to pollutant activity in the micro-environment.
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, PM2.5, PM1) and up to three gases (O3, NO2, VOCs) 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).
