PPMonitor checks laboratory air quality

The wireless IAQ profile PPMonitor enables flexible and simple management of air quality

PPM Technology’s wireless IAQ profile PPMonitor enables simple, effective and flexible management of the indoor air environment of a laboratory or cleanroom.

The PPMonitor, from the Caernarfon, Wales firm, can continuously detect, measure and record temperature, humidity, formaldehyde, nitrogen dioxide, carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, sulphur dioxide, ozone, ammonia and TVOCs.

The device incorporates a variety of advanced gas sensor technologies to monitor the target gases including NDIR, PID and electrochemical sensors.

The wireless units communicate via the Zigbee wireless mesh network, which can be extended by adding repeater nodes or additional PPMonitor or Mini PPMonitor units. Each unit can be configured with unique sensor specifications if required, allowing complete monitoring of the cleanroom air environment.

PPMonitor Units can be wirelessly connected to a Building Management System, in which BMS software allows the entire wireless system to be managed from a single PC. The BMS can activate and control air conditioning and ventilation systems; it can also turn on/off heating and trigger building alarms, if required.

All recorded data is stored automatically with dedicated software, which enables the data to be viewed graphically and produces reports and statistical data. Analysis of the recorded data over time allows for more efficient management of resources and energy.
