AQS 1 Smog Monitor
AQS 1 Smog Monitor
The AQS 1 Smog Monitor provides continuous real-time measurement of the key ingredients of photochemical smog – PM2.5 and ozone (O3), with no cross-sensitivity to nitrogen dioxide (NO2). 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, Environmental Impact Assessments, and community exposure studies.
Continuous real-time measurement of particulate matter (PM2.5) and highly accurate part-per-billion (ppb) detection of ozone (O3)
Measures and reports data in 1-minute intervals with user-selectable averaging – access data anywhere and set alerts via any wireless device
Robust, weatherproof enclosure with solar shielding, suitable for use in most conditions
The AQS 1 Smog Monitor is a fully integrated monitor, specifically configured to measure the key ingredients of photochemical smog – PM2.5 and ozone (O3). PM2.5 is often the most damaging pollutant during winter; ozone is often the most harmful during summer. To learn more about these important pollutants read this article.
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 PM2.5 for example, and add ozone or another gas at a later date (without returning to the factory).
