A report prepared for the Directorate General for Health and Consumers as part of the EU health programme advocates further EU action and policy relating to Indoor Air Quality.

The main focus of the IAIAQ report was assessing the public health impacts of some current European IAQ policies, and to predict the potential impacts of some alternative and future IAQ policy scenarios. IAIQ made also some attempts to assess the impacts of some EU funded IAQ data compiling projects on relevant legislation and the potential health impacts of such legislation.

Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) relates to a number of environmental factors inside a building that can impinge on the health, comfort, or work performance of the building’s occupants. Monitoring IAQ is vital because it is estimated that the average person spends 90% of their time breathing “indoor air”.

In order to accurately understand a building’s indoor air quality, it is advised to simultaneously monitor various indoor air quality parameters including gases temperature and humidity.

IAQ Monitoring Instruments

In order to accurately understand a building’s indoor air quality, it is advised to simultaneously monitor various indoor air quality parameters including gases, temperature and humidity. 

PPM Technology’s range of Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) monitoring instruments include the Wireless IAQ Profile Monitor it can contain sensors for a maximum of 7 customer specified IAQ parameters.

The Mini IAQ Profile Monitor can contain a maximum of 5 sensors. Both these instruments send the collected IAQ data wirelessly to the control pc/laptop in real-time; a large number of units can be networked together to enable accurate monitoring of an entire building.

The PPMonitor software enables the data to be viewed graphically, produce reports and statistical data, run schedules as well as alarm functions and notifications for more effective and economical building management. 

The software can set limits for temperature, humidity, and for concentrations of hazardous gases, which when exceeded can activate and control the air-conditioning and ventilation systems. It can also turn heating on and off, and as a last resort trigger building alarms. The alarm can be triggered to give a warning that the gas concentration level has reached a non-critical but concerning level. A further alarm can give a more severe warning when this occurs.

Our newest instrument is the 'Touch Screen' IAQ Profile Monitor is a stand-alone IAQ monitoring unit, capable of continuously monitoring up to 7 IAQ parameters. It is built with an integrated 3.5” ‘touch screen’ panel, which allows the user to navigate through the various sensors simply by touching the panel. The ‘touch screen’ software allows simple control and navigation; the user can view the data graphically, create monitoring schedules, produce reports and statistical data, as well as enable alarm functions and notifications for more effective and economical building management.
