Particle counter PC200

Measuring device for precise air quality control, for instance in cleanrooms or for testing filter systems

Portable environmental measuring device for testing air quality indoors, for testing the efficiency of HVAC filters, testing for leakages of suspended matter, as well as for testing the technical cleanliness of process engineering

The PC200 is an ergonomic, hand-held measuring device with a built-in photo and video function, which allows the user to monitor air particles and gather environmental data.

With its ISO 21501-4 conformity, the PC200 can be used for various measuring functions from testing cleanrooms and filter efficiency to monitoring burdens at workspaces and quality assurance.

All measured values of the six particle size channels are shown simultaneously on the 2.8 inch colour LCD display.

An additional colour indicator display with automatic acoustic alarm makes it easier to quickly detect critical particle concentrations.

As well as the size and amount fractions of air particles, the PC200 also detects environmental factors such as air temperature, relative humidity, and dew and wet-bulb temperature.

Furthermore, a digital camera is integrated to document the measuring environment by means of photos and videos.

The PC200's data logging function can store up to 5,000 measurement records on its internal memory. This can be expanded by up to 8 GB with a MicroSD card, which significantly raises the memory capacity.

After measuring, all detected data can be transmitted quickly and easily to a PC for the purpose of documentation or analysis via a USB interface.

Laser particle counter with integrated environmental measuring device and built-in photo and video function – the PC200 is the perfect solution for monitoring, assuring quality and analysing air quality for productivity, health and safety:

Indoor air quality measurements

The inhabitants of developed countries spend an average of 90 % of their time indoors. Thus, the quality of the room air is of particular importance for health and productivity.

With the PC200, problematic concentrations and sources of hazardous particles can be reliably detected and the compliance with statutory regulations can be documented.

Technical facility management

Heating, ventilation and air-conditioning technicians regard the PC200 as an ideal measuring instrument for all maintenance and control operations at various ventilation systems. Faulty installations can quickly lead to noticeable air quality problems in connecting rooms. The PC200 allows sources of hazardous contamination to be located, filter efficiency to be determined and particle concentrations in the indoor air to be evaluated.

Restoration companies can also use the PC200 to quickly and reliably detect partition leaks in areas of restoration.

Filter leak check

Suspended matter filters used in industrial processes must be regularly checked for correct functionality and tightness.

These checks are particularly important during acceptance tests or when filters have been replaced in order to prevent possible leaks.

The high sensitivity and counting accuracy of the PC200, as well as its ISO 21501-4 conformity make it a perfect choice for testing efficiency and secure seals of industrial suspended matter filters.

Technical cleanliness in process engineering

In sensitive production environments, contaminations attributable to micro- and nanoparticles such as aerosols, dust, soot or bacteria can gather on products in such a consistent manner that both appearance and functionality will be impaired.

Here, the PC200 is an ideal tool for preventing contamination as it eliminates quality losses due to particle impurities.

Particle counter PC200

The particle counter PC200 determines the size fractions and concentrations of air particles on six different channels from 0.3 µm to 10 µm with additional colour indicator display. Perfect for contamination control for instance in isolation areas with vacuum or overpressure conditions. In addition, the filter efficiency measurements can also be carried out while indicating the percentage efficiency per size fraction.
