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.
