AQMesh processes and stores all readings on its bespoke secure server which can be accessed by a website login or API to integrate with other systems, or it can be simple emailed to you at your preferred schedule
Maximum uptime across the network
Robust hardware, wireless communications and the secure AQMeshData server mean AQMesh pods can easily reconnect themselves and continue to capture data if power is ever interrupted. Faults or failures can be detected, diagnosed and resolved swiftly and remotely, without the need to visit the equipment.
A range of power sources can be used with AQMesh but whether a pod is installed with a continuous power supply, such as battery or solar with backup battery, or whether a simple 12V DC power supply is used, you can be confident that when the power comes back on, the pod will carry on where it left off, with no corruptions or failures to connect. This is not the case with all small sensor systems.
Our latest on-board firmware also allows pod firmware to be updated remotely and can be power cycled remotely should a problem occur, as well as offering a range of diagnostic information which can help identify and address local power issues.
More AQMesh benefits
AQMesh has been on the market and in the field since 2012, with some customers still successfully operating the exact same pods they received nine years ago
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
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
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
AQMesh is the proven small-sensor air quality monitor for indoor and outdoor air quality monitoring applications, measuring gases and particulates.
AQMesh performance has developed through a series of co-location comparison trials in which AQMesh pods are installed next to an air quality monitoring reference station..
S I Analytics has supplied 65 AQMesh pods into Southern Africa since 2016, many of which are used in mining applications. The small, post-mounted air pollution monitoring units measure a range of gaseous pollutants and particulate matter, as well as environmental conditions.
North Americans will be well aware of the particularly harsh weather in the early months of 2019, but AQMesh has taken conditions in its stride. The AQMesh stated operating range of -20°C to + 40°C is backed up by long-term operation across a wide range of climates.
AQMesh has been measuring ozone (O3) using small sensors since 2011 and the readings from the latest generation electrochemical sensor, using AQMesh v4.2.3 processing, as compared to co-located certified reference readings, consistently show an R2 of over 0.9 with an accuracy ±10ppb (20µg/m3).
Following a successful evaluation phase in 2018, AQMesh small sensor air quality monitoring ‘pods’ have been selected for use in a project to control the ventilation of a road tunnel in the city of Marseille.
