Alphasense unveils range of particulate sensors at AQE 2018

The Alphasense stand at the AQE 2018 exhibition will focus on the company's latest particulate sensors, including new optical particle counters; the OPC-R1 and the OPC-N3.

AlphasenseUKHeadOffice copyMeasuring just over 7cm wide and 2cm high, the OPC-R1 sensor is extremely small in comparison with previous technologies. However, with outputs for PM1, PM2.5, PM10 and histograms for up to 16 'bins' the sensor provides impressive monitoring capability.

The OPC-N3 offers automatic ranging for PM1, PM2.5, and PM10, and with a measuring range of 0.38 to 40 µm, it can measure from the finest fractions up to larger particles such as pollen.

In addition to particulate sensors, the Alphasense stand will also feature a full range of gas sensors, providing instrument developers and manufacturers with the opportunity to choose the best sensor for their market.

The accuracy of every Alphasense sensor is assured through the provision of a unique calibration for each individual sensor. This is important because most sensor manufacturers only provide average calibration data for a batch of sensors. Visit AQE stand 14 to learn more.
