Aeroqual S500 Starter Kit

Aeroqual S500 Starter Kit


Portable and accurate real time air quality information made affordable.

The Outdoor Air Quality Test Kit (Starter) is for users who want an affordable set of tools to measure the common pollutants in ambient outdoor air. Designed for those that require a handheld device capable of measuring the main air pollutants in urban environments.

Select from either the S500 Indoor Starter Kit or the S500 Outdoor Starter Kit, or view other configurations.

The Outdoor Air Quality Test Kit (Starter) features Aeroqual’s proven Series 500 portable monitor that can be used to measure a range of pollutants by simply swapping the sensor heads for the pollutant you wish to monitor. Nitrogen dioxide, ozone and particulate matter are the three main air pollutants in urban environments. Nitrogen dioxide (NO2) and particulate matter (PM) is emitted directly by stationary vehicles and ozone (O3) is created when NOand volatile organic compounds (VOCs) combine in the presence of sunlight.  The health effects of these pollutants are well-documented. The Outdoor Starter Kit includes the following sensors: particulate matter (PM) sensor (PM2.5/PM10), two criteria pollutant gas sensors (NO2, O3), and a combined temperature and relative humidity sensor. For a full set of tools, including additional sensor heads measuring CO and VOCs, see the Outdoor Air Quality Test Kit (Pro). Now you can get a better understanding of the outdoor air using instruments tried and proven by researchers and air quality professionals around the world.

Step 1 – Gather data

Use the monitor and interchangeable sensors to take spot measurements, or log data over time and space. The monitor is designed to fit comfortably in the hand and the long life lithium battery gives you a full day in the field.

Step 2 – Download data

Using the Series 500 model, connect to a PC and download your measurements using Aeroqual’s free software. From there, data can be exported to Excel. The Series 300 and 500 models can also output data directly via 0-5V and RS232.

Step 3 – Analyze data

Analyze your data to identify trends, discover leaks or pollution hotspots, or dive deep into the numbers for research. Data can be tagged to a location, and data is tied to the individual monitor ID. This makes large studies, involving multiple monitors and locations, easy to manage.

All sensors use active fan sampling
