Particle sensor uses laser technology for accurate monitoring

The HPM series particle sensor from Honeywell can now be sourced in Europe through TTI. The product is designed to work in heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems and consumer products such air purifiers to measure air quality in homes, buildings and public spaces.

The sensor uses laser technology to accurately and cost-effectively monitor for fine inhalable particles that are 2.5 micrometers in diameter or smaller.

For reference, the average human hair is nearly 30 times larger at 70 micrometers in diameter.

The laser-based sensor uses a light-scattering method to accurately detect and count particles in the concentration range of 0 micrograms-per-cubic-meter-of-air (µg/m3) to 1,000µg/m3 in a given environment.

The sensor then analyses the particulate size and concentration in real time to enable systems to provide alerts and allow operators to take remediation actions.

With its heavy industrial level electromagnetic compatibility, the HPM series sensor performs accurately in harsh, challenging environments.

Building operators benefit from the sensor's industry-leading long life of 20,000 hours, which allows for stable operations and continuous use.

The sensor can be used in a range of consumer products such as air purifiers, automotive air systems and mobile air quality detectors.
