Air Quality Sensors
Air quality sensors are designed to detect and monitor pollutants in the air, with specific devices used for air quality checking both indoors and outdoors. These devices can be used to detect toxins, dangerous gases, and other types of pollution that may be harmful to both humans and animals. Most air quality sensors are small and portable, providing real-time information about air quality at low cost and with low power needs.
How do air quality sensors work?
Air quality sensors measure and monitor the concentration of potentially harmful gases in the air. When a specific gas or pollutant is detected at above a specific concentration level, an alarm alerts people nearby, enabling them to take action.
What gases do air quality sensors check for?
Air quality sensors can check for hazardous, flammable, and toxic gases. Air quality sensors are often used for checking air for carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide but may also be used to check for volatile organic compounds or the concentration of oxygen in a specific space.
Do air quality sensors have any other uses?
Yes. In addition to measuring and monitoring the concentration of harmful gases and pollutants, air quality sensors can also measure humidity and temperature. Many air quality sensors will perform multiple functions.
Where are air quality sensors used?
Air quality sensors can be used in a variety of locations, depending on their use. They’re commonly found in use to measure the impact of vehicles and factories on local air quality but may also be used indoors to monitor air quality in workplaces and around the home.
