- Model AE51 - Pocket-Sized Black Carbon Aerosol Monitor

From

0

The microAeth AE51 is a real-time, pocket-sized Black Carbon aerosol monitor. This palm-size instrument is small enough to be worn on-person and provides aerosol Black Carbon concentration in real-time. The microAeth incorporates the same Aethalometer® measurement technology which has been used worldwide for over 30 years.

The device is a self-contained instrument with built-in pump, flow control, data storage, and battery designed for on-person exposure monitoring.

The instrument can operate continuously for up to 24 hours on a single battery charge. The air sample is collected on T60 (Teflon coated glass fiber) filter media. The filter media is housed in an easy to replace filter strip for simple handling in the field.

The microAeth AE51 has been used to take measurements of cookstoves, tobacco smoke exposure as well as on planes, trains, bicycles, UAVs, and weather balloons.

MEASUREMENT PARAMETER:
Black Carbon

Product name-AE51 - Personal Black Carbon Monitor
Manufacturer-Aethlabs
Description-The microAeth AE51 is designed specifically for investigation of personal exposure to carbonaceous particles found in   ambient air.
Real-time analysis is carried out by measuring the rate of change in absorption of transmitted light due to continuous collection of aerosol deposit on filter. Measurement at 880 nm is interpreted as concentration of Black Carbon (‘BC’). 
Type-Aethalometer
No of Measured parameters-1
Measurement Parameter-Black Carbon
Measurement range-0-1 mg BC/m3
Precision-±0.1 μg BC/m3, 1 min avg., 150 ml/min flow rate
Resolution-0.001 μg BC/m3
Measurement frequency-1, 5, 10, 30, 60, or 300 seconds
Operating temperature range-0 ~ 40 °C operating
Operating humidity range-Non-condensing
Power requirement-USB-based power charger with AC adapter (100-500mA) for internal 5VDC lithium ion battery
4 hours to full charge (using AC adapter, instrument turned off).
Communications-USB connectivity to Windows®-based PC with microAethCOM
Output-Internal data files are uploaded to microAethCOM PC software and stored on local disk.
Software-microAethCOM software is included. Provides visual interface including real-time BC mass concentration values. Facilitates settings configuration, calibration routines, downloading data, and uploading new instrument firmware.
Data logging-4 MB internal flash memory, providing up to 1 month data storage when operating on a 300 second timebase, and 1 week when operating on a 60 second timebase.
Dimensions-L: 117 mm (4.6 in), W: 66 mm (2.6 in), D: 38 mm (1.5 in)
Weight-~280g
GPS-Yes
Accessories & Consumables-Filter strips: 1 filter strip per sampling campaign, typically one per day. High concentration sampling may require more than one filter per day.
Applications-

  • Wearable personal monitoring
  • Mobile monitoring
  • Continuous real-time monitoring
  • Daily monitoring
  • Exposure assessment
  • Health effects
  • Occupational safety
  • UAVs & vertical profiling
