Particulate Monitor Overview
The PMX Particulate Monitor can be used in a wide range of applications to detect changes in light transmission up to a distance of 30 ft. The light transmission is affected by smoke, dust and other airborne particulates.
The PMX is available in two styles: a board only configuration intended for integration into OEM equipment and in NEMA 4X housings for other applications that require a sealed enclosure.
The sensor provides a 2 digit display of signal strength for quick and easy system integration, PNP/NPN output with automatic selection and a 0-5V analog output for remote monitoring.
The PMX Particulate Monitor provides a cost effective solution to log light transmission variations and take action, such as activating exhaust fans, in industrial and commercial ventilation applications.
Energy Saving Advantage:
Currently in the commercial kitchen hood market, ventilation is activated in the morning and stays active until the facility closes at night. The PMX sensor will enable the kitchen hood ventilation unit to be activated and adjust its speed based on the amount of smoke generated by the food being cooked. Overall, the PMX allows ventilation to be based on actual ventilation demand and not just be a static operation, which is a significant energy and cost savings.
PMX Sensor Applications:
- Demand control kitchen ventilation (DCKV)
- Ventilation systems
- Commercial cooking hoods
- Factory venting
- Exhaust systems
- Environmental monitoring
