AQMesh pods can measure just one gas or up to six gases, particles, noise and wind speed & direction. Humidity, pressure and pod temperature are always measured
Easy to install
AQMesh pods are neat, compact and easy install within just a few minutes and experienced technical staff are not required. A 90 second installation video shows just how quick it is to be up and running.
We have been up the ladders and understand that you only have two hands. A great deal of thought, experience and feedback has gone into how AQMesh is installed. We used to sell separate fittings but realised that things are often not quite what you expected on site, or that even the best laid plans can change. So we supply universal fittings which require the minimum amount of time up a ladder or on a busy street to handle. Our simple installation video shows how we recommend the pods are installed and proves that 20 pods can be successfully installed in one morning.
Obviously the battery-powered pods are easiest to install but we have also gone the extra mile on solar and DC power supply. Our solar pack is not just a solar panel: the whole optimised back-up battery and smart charging unit which supports – and tilts - the solar panel also mounts to a post with a small number of universal fittings that are supplied. We also have a video to show this, as well as an app to confirm that charging levels are correct before you leave the site.
As not all power supplies are equal, in many ways, we supply as standard a fully tested weatherproof AC to DC transformer, to ensure that the power supply reaching the equipment is as smooth as possible, allowing AQMesh to achieve the unparalleled sensitivity at single figure ppb which has been consistently demonstrated.
Of course a benefit of being able to install a pod easily is that it is equally as easy to move around, monitoring in the locations your project requires, including co-location with reference.
Have you asked exactly how other small sensor systems are installed? What tools you need? How long you will have to be up a ladder? How heavy / awkward the equipment is? Have they proven to you that it is easy?
More AQMesh benefits
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
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
AQMesh performance and long-term baseline stability has been proven over many years of independent global co-location trials against certified reference equipment
AQMesh is the proven small-sensor air quality monitor for indoor and outdoor air quality monitoring applications, measuring gases and particulates.
Whilst not the only AQMesh pods still in regular use since the product was commercially launched in 2013, two AQMesh pods are still in use in Spain and demonstrate the long life of this small sensor air quality monitoring system.
The AQMesh small sensor air quality monitoring system already offers flexibility of monitoring location – through independent power and communications – as well as high data quality and traceability.
AQMesh has an impressive collection of global users and performance results measuring ambient air quality in applications ranging from traffic planning and urban hotspots to industrial fence line monitoring.
The emergence of sensors capable of measuring the gases and particles that make up air pollution, especially in cities and industrial areas, has driven many academic studies which evaluate the sensors and compare performance against reference methodology.
Recent co-location comparison trials against certified reference equipment continue to prove AQMesh performance and reliability for localised air quality monitoring.
