Outdoor Air Quality Test Kit (Starter)

The Aeroqual Outdoor Air Quality Test Kit (Starter) includes everything you need to start measuring key pollutants commonly found in urban environments. Features Aeroqual’s proven Ranger portable monitor with PMX multi-channel technology measuring PM1, PM2.5, PMresp, PM10 and total suspended particles. Interchangeable sensor heads measure particulate matter, nitrogen dioxide (NO2), and ozone (O3). Suitable for use during outdoor air quality assessments, personal exposure monitoring, and as an educational tool.

Includes swappable sensor heads for each of the three main air pollutants found in urban environments – particulate matter (PM1, PM2.5, PMresp, PM10 and TSP), nitrogen dioxide (NO2), and ozone (O3)

Gather data in real-time using the Aeroqual Ranger’s inbuilt real-time data logger

Long-life lithium battery and in-field calibration make this an easy-to-use kit, delivering highly accurate results

Product overview

The Outdoor Air Quality Test Kit (Starter) features industry-quality instruments used by researchers and air quality professionals around the world in an affordable, easy-to-use package. Simply swap out the sensor head on the Series 500 portable monitor for the pollutant you wish to monitor. Nitrogen dioxide (NO2) and particulate matter (PM) are emitted directly by stationary vehicles, and ozone (O3) is created when NO2 and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) combine in the presence of sunlight. The health risks of overexposure to these pollutants are well-documented. This kit also includes a combined temperature and relative humidity sensor.

Protect yourself and your community, learning more about the quality of your outdoor air. For a full set of tools, including additional sensor heads measuring CO and VOCs, see the Outdoor Air Quality Test Kit (Pro).

What makes Aeroqual different is the attention to data quality that we design in to all our instruments. Combined with the Ranger monitor the PMX sensor offers the following benefits:
  • Accurate calibrated measurements

  • Fast T90 response time

  • Humidity correction

  • K factor adjustment

Together, these features allow the Ranger to deliver accurate real-time data when compared to instruments that cost 20-30 times more.

There are many different types of outdoor air pollution. Measuring them all would be too expensive, so regulators focus on a smaller group of common air pollutants, sometimes known as the criteria pollutants. The criteria pollutants are:

  • Nitrogen dioxide (NO2)

  • Sulfur dioxide (SO2)

  • Carbon monoxide (CO)

  • Ozone (O3)

  • Particulate matter (PM)

As always requirements should be confirmed with your local regulatory body.

Sensors are housed within an interchangeable ‘sensor head’ that attaches to the monitor base. You can choose from up to 28 different gas and particulate sensor heads. Each sensor head contains a single gas or particle sensor. Swapping sensor heads takes seconds and no configuration or re-calibration is required. 

You can find our specifications for our sensor heads here:


Note: Accuracy may drift as the sensor ages.

How many sensors can I use on the monitor at once?

You can only connect one gas or particulate sensor head at a time to monitor.

Can I use the PMX sensor head with any portable monitor? 

The PMX sensor is only compatible with the Ranger. 

What is the PPM to mg/m³ conversion factor?

The Ranger applies a conversion factor to convert ppm to mg/m3 which is dependent on the molecular weight of the gas being measured.  

Do I return the instrument for calibration?

Only the sensor head needs to be calibrated. The base unit does not need to be calibrated. All parameters are stored on the sensor head. 

The sensor head calibration should be completed after the first year.
