Our very first pods sold, measuring either 3 gases (NO, NO2 and O3) or 5 gases (NO, NO2, O3, CO and SO2) and using the 2G GPRS mobile communications network, with a flat mounting bracket and powered by internal lithium batteries.
AQMesh is the proven small sensor outdoor air quality monitor manufactured in the UK by Environmental Instruments Ltd and supported worldwide through a global network of distributors. It has been designed to offer a robust and easy-to-use air quality monitoring system that can deliver localised real-time readings, improving the accuracy and scope of gathering air quality data in order to support initiatives to reduce air pollution and its risk to human health.
AQMesh was first launched in 2012 and has seen a number of improvements in design and functionality since its early days. Beginning as a pod powered by a lithium battery and measuring either 3 or 5 gases, AQMesh is now a modular platform measuring from a single gas to up to 6 gases with PM1, PM2.5, PM4, PM10, noise and wind speed & direction. It offers all the benefits of a full air quality monitoring station without increasing in size and a range of autonomous power supply options, including a bespoke solar pack, and completed with seamless data delivery using the latest communications technology.
Pods can now measure PM as well as 3 or 5 gases, with new 3G connectivity, added GPS option and added noise monitoring option, with a new mounting bracket design and sun shield.
Pods still monitor either 3 or 5 gases as well as PM and noise, using the 3G network and with optional GPS, and now feature an improved PM inlet and choice of either batteries or DC power.
In September 2016 the first AQMesh solar pack was introduced, increasing its range of autonomous power supply options. The ability to monitor CO2 with an NDIR sensor was also added in addition to the standard 3 or 5 gases, PM and noise.
A heated inlet was added for improved PM monitoring, as well as a new mounting bracket design for the pod and a new plastic sunshield.
In April 2018 the new smart solar pack replaced the previous solar power pack, featuring smart connectivity with a mobile app for checking power output, viewing historical data and running diagnostics.
2019 was a big year for AQMesh, launching the new wind speed & direction sensor, as well as adding H2S to its range. Pods are now more modular and can be configured to measure a single gas or up to 6 gases as well as PM, noise, and wind speed & direction.
2020 introduced the new AQMesh LTE CAT M1 modem, using the latest LTE (Long Term Evolution) communications standard, including support for NB-IoT (machine-to-machine). Worldwide coverage is still offered via the global cellular network using 4G/5G with 2G fallback.
