PRODUCT SPECIFICATION SHEET

MODULAIR

Overview

MODULAIR provides real-time estimates of particulate matter (PM1, PM2.5, PM10), particle size distribution, and up to five user-selected gas-phase pollutants (choose from CO, CO2, NO, NO2, O3, SO2, H2S). Each unit is internet connected and paired with the QuantAQ Cloud. MODULAIR is easily deployed as a standalone unit or as part of a distributed air quality sensor network. Available add-on accessories include meteorological measurements (wind speed and wind direction via a sonic anemometer) and a standalone solar and battery solution to allow off-grid use.

Features

✅ 2+ years on-board data storage

✅ Full access to all raw sensor data

✅ No co-location or remote calibration required

✅ 1 minute time resolution (cloud); 5 second time resolution (on-board)

*All statistics were determined via co-location experiments with research and/or regulatory-grade instruments such as the TSI SMPS or Teledyne T640 in environments across the United States. 5-min data was not available for PM2.5 or PM10 due to limitations of the reference instruments. The coefficient of determination (R2) describes how well the MODULAIR-PM predicts the desired outcome. The mean absolute error (MAE) describes the measure of error between the observed and predicted values. The coefficient of variation (CV) of the mean absolute error can be thought of as a 'percent error' as a function of the MAE. This table was last updated in April of 2021.

All statistics above were determined via co-location experiments with research and/or regulatory-grade instruments in realistic environments across the United States. The mean absolute error (MAE) describes the measure of error between the observed and predicted values. The coefficient of variation of the mean absolute error (CV) can be thought of as a 'percent error' as a function of the MAE. This table was last updated in April of 2021. Gases marked as "NA" do not yet have enough data to be listed. Please check back for updates.
