The AQS 1 is a compact ambient air quality monitor that targets specific pollutants in the urban environment. It can be configured to measure nitrogen dioxide, ozone and particulate matter, which are the most commonly measured pollutants in the urban environment.
Using Aeroqual’s patented sensor technology the AQS 1 delivers very accurate measurements at a price that is well below traditional ambient air monitoring equipment. At the same time its small size and lower price enables networks of greater density. By using this tool air quality professionals can gain new insight to pollutant activity in the micro-environment.
The AQS 1 combines a robust nephelometer, sharp cut cyclone, and Aeroqual’s industry leading GSS ozone sensor technology. It uses a patented method to correct for ozone interference on the electrochemical NO2, a well known issue with all electrochemical NO2 sensors. In so doing, the monitor performs to Near Reference levels, producing data of superior quality to other sensor-based instruments.
The AQS 1 is a fully integrated monitor. Housed in a rugged, lockable weatherproof enclosure, it includes an embedded PC and full software system for remote technical support, data management and analytics.
The AQS 1 is supported by a global distribution network, meaning you’re never too far from a skilled technician ready to provide assistance and spare parts. In addition Aeroqual’s online training system is free to all our customers, meaning you can become an expert on your AQS system before it even arrives.
Once the instrument operating system is installed, Aeroqual Connect lets you access data, assess performance and diagnose faults remotely (if you choose to give us access, we can help with that too). Aeroqual Cloud offers even greater levels of convenience with enhanced browsing speeds, multiple user management, fail-safe backup, email and SMS alerts and access to your data even when your instrument is offline.
In future we will add new gas modules to the AQS 1 – to register your interest please tell us about your application.
- Particulate Matter – PM (Nephelometer: PM2.5 or PM10 or PM1 or TSP; Dust-Profiler: PM1, PM2.5, PM10 and TSP)
- Ozone (O3) (0-500 ppb)
- Nitrogen dioxide (NO2) (0-500 ppb)
