AQMesh (v.4.0)

General Description

The AQMesh (Version 4.0) is a wireless air quality device that measures ambient gases, humidity, and atmospheric pressure. The AQMesh v.4.0 measures gases including NO (0-4ppm), NO2 (0-4ppm), O3 (0-1.8ppm), CO (0-5ppm) and SO2 (0-100ppm). The raw sensor signals are transmitted by GPRS to a secure cloud server where the raw output is processed. Processing includes mathematical processing which deals with cross-gas effects and environmental factors. Data can be accessed through a secure web login.

AQMesh v.4.0 was developed in 2014 and involved improvements in electrochemical sensors and the AQMesh processing algorithms. The process of sensor characterization include correction for environmental factors, correction of gas span and baseline offset. The previous version (AQMesh v.3.5) had been developed in 2013 and showed that air pollutants trends could be identified

Principle of Operation

This device incorporates electrochemical gas sensors with a fourth electrode to increase stability and combat drift. Precision is maintained by reducing noise levels in the circuit to a few parts per billion. It also uses proprietary catalyst loading and stack structure to certify steady operation at low concentrations.
