PM2.5 particulate matter analyser uses world renowned particulate matter sensor

Jul 13 2020 Read 513 Times

The PM2.5 Particulate Matter Analyzer from ELV Elektronik AG, which is available as a complete kit and as a ready-to-use device, provides highly accurate measurements of particulate matter pollution down to a particle size of PM1.0 – both on mobile devices and on a desktop PC. This is made possible by a state-of-the-art, precise particulate matter sensor with long-term stability from Sensirion, one of the leading experts for environmental sensor solutions.

The concentration of particulate matter is an important aspect of air quality. Particulate matter, referred to as “PM” for short, is a mixture of solid particles and fine droplets suspended in the air that can be inhaled and cause serious health problems. It is the smallest particles from industrial, transport, and household pollution that we need to think about as humans because they can prove to be very harmful to our health. The smallest particles can penetrate deep into our bodies and can cause asthma, allergies, and cardiovascular and respiratory diseases. The frequency and intensity of this harm to our health increases in line with the concentration of particulate matter in the air we breathe. Various devices, such as the ELV PM2.5 Particulate Matter Analyser from ELV Elektronik AG, are available for avoiding exposure to high concentrations of particulate matter or for identifying its sources.

The ELV Particulate Matter Analyser is suitable for both mobile and stationary applications in the field of particulate matter measurement with its high-quality OLED colour graphic display and convenient depiction of the measured values, a LiPo battery that can be recharged using a USB charging port, and the option to record and output the measured values. The device is available in two versions – firstly, as a complete kit for the electronics enthusiast, and, secondly, as a ready-to-use device for the end user.

“Using Sensirion’s MCERTS-certified, highly accurate particulate matter sensor with long-term stability, we can offer our customers a high-quality environmental measuring device that is ideally suited to specialist, multi-purpose measurement in particulate matter thanks to its range of device functions”, says Markus Ulsass, Managing Editor at ELVjournal.

Sensirion’s SPS30 is the first mass-market particulate matter sensor to achieve MCERTS certification and represents a technological breakthrough in optical PM sensors. The measurement principle is based on laser scattering and makes use of Sensirion’s innovative contamination resistance technology. Together with high-quality and long-lasting components, this technology enables precise measurements from the first time that the device is commissioned and throughout its service life of more than ten years. In addition, Sensirion’s advanced algorithms provide superior PM2.5 measurement performance and higher-resolution particle size binning, giving rise to new possibilities for detecting different types of environmental dust and other particles.

“ELV’s PM2.5 Particulate Matter Analyser is an ideal application for our SPS30 particulate matter sensor, as the device is designed to provide high levels of accuracy and reliable functionality,” says Hartmut Welte, Area Sales Manager at Sensirion.
