Airqoon Sensor Unit M

Introduction

Continuous monitoring is an essential step in air pollution management. Airqoon utilizes its sensor unit M, which can precisely detect the concentration of fine liquid and solid particles and hazardous gas pollutants suspended in the air. Particles of less than 2.5 µm (PM2.5) in diameter are dust, smoke, soot, smog, pollen, and liquid particles that can penetrate deep into our lungs and cause short and long-term health hazards.

Airqoon sensor unit M is designed to satisfy the increasing need for a handheld air quality monitor that is mobile and is used to monitor pollutant levels in places such as public transport, state hospitals, and government buildings.

Airqoon sensor unit M monitors and analyzes dust particles (PM2.5, PM10) and ambient conditions.

Features

Accurate sensing with Airqoon’s smart calibration process

One of the main concerns of employing a low-cost sensor (LCS) for air pollution monitoring is its accuracy. Thanks to Airqoons smart calibration algorithm, the accuracy of sensor units is increased significantly. The results were proven by independent bodies such as universities, metropolitan municipalities, and the ministry of environment of Turkey.


Global Connectivity

To provide continuous, seamless monitoring, global connectivity is a must. Airqoon units can work with WiFi, BLE, 4G, and NB-IoT.


Portability – Handheld and mountable options

Airqoon units are battery-powered and can continuously work for a week without a recharge. In addition, they are pretty portable and can be carried by hand or in a small bag.


Part of an ecosystem

By purchasing an Airqoon unit, users become a part of a whole ecosystem. Depending on the requirement given by the users indoor and outdoor sensors are displayed and can be monitored from Airqoon’s air map.


Ease of deployment and maintenance

Units can be easily deployed and become operating in less than 5 minutes. Diagnostic information is collected in the Airqoon cloud for the quality of data and continuity of the service.

Trusted data quality proven with third parties
Accurate sensing with Airqoon’s unique calibration process

The main concern while employing a low-cost sensor (LCS) for air pollution monitoring is its accuracy. Remote calibration is a mandatory process to meet data quality standards defined by the EU and USEPA. Calibrated airqoon data were compared with reference measurements via colocation experiments conducted by independent bodies such as universities, metropolitan municipalities, and the ministry of environment of Türkiye.
