AQMesh pods are neat, compact and easy install within just a few minutes and experienced technical staff are not required
Environmental consultants, academic research and health and safety
Consultancies and research facilities are working with partners throughout the world to provide air quality monitoring and management services. Using air quality monitors can help organisations measure, assess and manage the impact of air pollution from their projects or operation, ranging from planning applications for new building works, traffic system optimisation, employee health & safety, transport hubs and industrial plants.
AQMesh has been used by a number of ambient air quality experts, environmental consultants and academics in a range of studies to provide reliable, repeatable and accurate data, which can be used as evidence to support mitigation strategies and risk assessments, as well as used in modelling to provide advice on which policies can be made.
Meaningful correction of cross-gas effects and interference from environmental conditions is consistently delivered through proven and traceable processing
The carefully developed data processing algorithms used by AQMesh are fully traceable and fixed by version number, and, unlike other systems, have been achieved with no use of machine learning or artificial intelligence
Development through extensive global co-location comparison trials in all seasons across each continent means AQMesh can operate in the wides possible range of environments and conditions
With wireless communications using the global mobile network and a choice of power options, including batteries, mains supply or a bespoke solar pack, AQMesh can be installed in almost any location
Whilst some manufacturers use a calculation to give an NO2 reading, AQMesh uses a unique O3-filtered NO2 sensor for accurate, direct measurement of NO2
