The sensor provides real-time measurements, allowing it to be easily relocated and continuously monitor air quality levels in different locations
Purelogic Labs India has Launched Prana Air Pocket Monitor, a precise and cost-effective PM2.5 level monitoring solution for increased air pollution awareness. This innovative PM2.5 monitor offers on-the-go indoor and outdoor air pollution measurements, featuring WiFi connectivity for data analysis on mobile apps, Android TV, and web dashboards. Equipped with a 400 mAh lithium battery, it provides up to 3-4 hours of usage without recharging, enabling users to assess air quality anytime, anywhere, as claimed by the company.
Prana Air Pocket Monitor has a built-in, high-quality sensor to check PM2.5 values, meaning particles with a diameter of less than 2.5 micrometers, it added.
One can easily download the AQI app on any iOS and Android smartphone, from the app store. Then go to "My Device" and select Pocket PM2.5 Monitor. The monitor can be simply turned on by long pressing the on-button until a QR code appears on the screen. Scan the QR code or enter the device ID displayed on your device screen, and fill in your Wi-Fi details., allowing the monitor to boot and begin measuring the air. The PM2.5 values will be shown to the left while a category for the safety level will be shown on the right, ranging from Good to Hazardous. With the high sensitivity of the sensor, it can detect particle count levels up to 999 µg/m3. To calculate the particle count, the device uses a sophisticated laser sensor with an additional algorithm to give PM2.5 into ug/m3
The portable device can be used in any indoor or outdoor environment. The sensor measures in real-time which means it can move from place to place and constantly check the air quality levels, the company claimed.
Rohit Bansal, founder of Purelogic Labs states, “The Pocket Monitor allows any user from a novice to an experienced level to quickly and in real-time check how the PM2.5 values are in their surroundings. Based on that, they can take action to protect themselves.”
