APC1 device combines multiple sensors in one compact device

1 min read

ScioSense, a Dutch company that designs and manufactures semiconductor-based environmental and flow sensors, has launched the APC1, an all-in-one combo sensor that accurately tracks up to 20 air quality parameters.

The APC1 can detect particulate matter (PM1.0, PM2.5 and PM10) as small as 0.3 microns.

The device is able to precisely measure particulate matter and aerosols, volatile organic compounds, temperature and humidity. It leverages some of the most advanced sensor technology to provide an accurate, fully calibrated, maintenance-free solution to air quality monitoring.

The sensor has been developed to simplify the design of environmental sensing applications and among its key feature are its size, 50 x 38x 21mm (smallest form factor); simplicity, it features temperature compensation algorithms to simplify integration at the system level; and its Serial interface, with up to 20 environmental signal parameters through UART and I2C interfaces.

The APC1 complies with international standards (PMx, eCO2, TVOC, AQI according to UBA) and offers high accuracy over wide temperature and humidity ranges.

The sensor module helps automate professional demand-controlled ventilation as well as high-volume consumer devices like air cleaners/purifiers, IoT smart meters and thermostats.

ScioSense’s is able to provide in-house and research-partnership capabilities which mean they can customise or create solutions to meet specific requirements at relatively little extra cost or time, thereby accelerating time to market and reducing overall BOM costs.
