Aeroqual AQS 1 Ambient Ozone Monitor
Air quality professionals and researchers use the AQS 1 to better understand the spatial and temporal distribution of ozone which is an important ‘criteria’ pollutant. Ozone formation and distribution are complex and strategies for reducing ozone must start with accurate mapping of the ozone problem. To date monitoring equipment has been too expensive to deploy at a scale large enough to map ozone across large areas.
The AQS 1 utilizes Aeroqual’s industry-leading GSS ozone sensor technology. As a result, the monitor performs to Near Reference levels yet costs much less than comparable analyzers. It is also lightweight and can be installed and moved with ease.
The AQS 1 is a fully integrated monitor. Housed in a rugged, lockable weatherproof enclosure, it includes a pumped gas sampling system, an embedded PC and a full software system for remote technical support, data management, and analytics. The monitor is delivered as an all-in-one package, so you can be set up and monitoring in minutes.
The AQS 1 can be configured to measure particulate matter (TSP, PM10, PM2.5, PM1) and up to three gases (O3, NO2, VOCs) simultaneously. Because it is modular, you may order the unit with just ozone for example, and add PM or another gas at a later date (without returning to the factory).
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.
