The Airnet II 4 Channel Air Particle Sensor from Alpha Controls meets the specifications of ISO 21501-4 to measure the size and number of particles suspended in the air for real-time monitoring of defect-causing particles.
With a sensitivity range of 0.2 to 10.0 µm, the systems are said to provide a simple and cost-effective way to monitor a cleanroom with data transmission capabilities for remote monitoring.
Versatile power options combined with a small footprint makes the sensor easy to install where it is needed, says Alpha Controls.
The unit can be configured to accept distributed power from an in-house system or power over ethernet (PoE).
Data integrity is maintained through the use of a data queue feature that continues to gather data even if communication is lost.
To ensure proper flow conditions and vacuum system operation, these units incorporate a Dynamic Flow Sensing system that will alarm with a 15% change in flow conditions.
Units interface with Facility Net, Pharmaceutical Net and FacilityPro Software for comprehensive management of cleanroom conditions, the company adds.
