Met One Instruments NPM 3 Particulate Monitor

$0.00

The Met One Instruments NPM 3 particulate monitor is a forward light scatter laser nephelometer which automatically measures real-time airborne TSP, PM10, or PM2.5 particulate concentration levels. The NPM 3 features improved reliability and lower maintenance. Each unit uses a serial cable that allows the device to connect to a laptop, data logger, or CCS+ Comet Cloud Modem, where the real-time data is accessible for display, logging, review, and reporting instantly or at a later time. The monitor contains a 5-mW diode laser operating at 670nm wavelength. A protective optical housing fully encapsulates the laser beam and optics system within the device. Data from the NPM 3 can be managed using the supplied copy of Met One’s user-friendly, Windows-based, Comet™ communications terminal software. Comet allows the user to view real-time data and log data to a data file on a computer in .csv format.

Description

The Met One Instruments NPM 3 particulate monitor is a forward light scatter laser nephelometer which automatically measures real-time airborne TSP, PM10, or PM2.5 particulate concentration levels. The NPM 3 features improved reliability and lower maintenance. Each unit uses a serial cable that allows the device to connect to a laptop, data logger, or CCS+ Comet Cloud Modem, where the real-time data is accessible for display, logging, review, and reporting instantly or at a later time. The monitor contains a 5-mW diode laser operating at 670nm wavelength. A protective optical housing fully encapsulates the laser beam and optics system within the device. Data from the NPM 3 can be managed using the supplied copy of Met One’s user-friendly, Windows-based, Comet™ communications terminal software. Comet allows the user to view real-time data and log data to a data file on a computer in .csv format.

The NPM 3 is calibrated using 0.6μm NIST traceable polyspheres. These provide a critical and consistent baseline calibration. To correlate this calibration to real-world, non-spherical particulates, a Calibration Factor (K-Factor) is established by means of comparison to a collocated, trusted, and proven reference source (i.e., a BAM 1020) to ensure both accuracy and correlation. The initial K Factor is established at the originating site. If the local particulate source changes, the K Factor may require readjustment. The unit is supplied with a TSP head, Comet software, mounting bracket, and hose clamp.
