Airqoon Sensor Unit L

Introduction

Continuous monitoring is an essential step in air pollution management. Airqoon utilizes its sensor unit L, 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 L additionally measures ambient environmental conditions such as air temperature, humidity, and pressure. It can be customized to measure hazardous pollutants CO, NO2, SO2, O3, and H2S.

Features

Accurate sensing with Airqoon’s smart calibration process

The main concern while employing a low-cost sensor (LCS) for air pollution monitoring is accuracy. Thanks to Airqoon’s smart calibration process, sensor unit accuracy is increased significantly.


Global Connectivity

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


Battle-proof for harsh environments (-30C – +50C)

Airqoon units have experience in diverse and extreme environments, from a research center in Antarctica to a mining facility in Maras, one of the hottest locations in Turkey.


Energy self-sufficient 

With its onboard battery pack and solar panel, Airqoon units can work 24/7/365 without interference. It is also offered an option to be powered by a typical 5V/2A wall adapter.


Ease of 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.
