Newly announced PM2.5 & PM10 Air quality transmitter, provide a better solution to monitor particle matters!2017/03/21 Aecl
Fine inhalable particles and inhalable, with diameters that are generally 2.5 micrometers and smaller is responsible for harmful effects on health, in particular the respiratory system. To better monitor the indoor PM2.5 or PM10 concentration would help to take necessary action to improve air quality. Aecl thus provides a better solution to accurately measure particle matter (PM) and send detail data with RS485, Modbus RTU monitoring center or to HVAC system. The immediate action can be to trigger ventilation system or to activate air purifier to ensure better indoor air quality.
There are a lot of contaminants surrounding us, such as suspended particulates, VOC (volatile organic compounds), formaldehyde, flammable gas, carbon dioxide, sulfur dioxide, ozone, cigaratte fume and etc. And suspended particulates has recently drawed much attention. A lot of research proves that the particulates in the air will damage respiratory and cardiovascular system and lead to asthma, lung cancer, cardiovascular diseases, birth defects or dying young. There are PM2.5 and PM10 according to the size of particulates. PM2.5, very high penetration, can reach to the wall of bronchus and interfere air exchange in lung. In 2011, Taiwan implement "Indoor air quality act", and specify with provisions in order to control the quality of living environment. Aecl launches PM2.5 & PM10 transmitter for monitoring indoor air quality and providing measurement data for management and analysis through RS-485 communication protocol. If using with other equipment, it can take some effective measures, such as activating fan to enhance ventilation, or activating air cleaner to clean the air and to improve indoor air quality.
