particulate matter PM sensor

Introducing Particulate Matter Sensors.

NextPM sensor - particulate matter

NextPM is the most advanced particle measurement solution available on the market and is now available from ION Science.

ION Science Ltd has formally announced the addition of a high-specification Particulate Matter (PM) sensor to its portfolio and now proudly offers both of the world’s best-performing Photoionisation Detection (PID) and Particulate Matter (PM) sensors, further supporting the company’s status as a global leader in sensor supply and service.
NextPM is the latest innovation from TERA Sensor, a company by Groupe TERA, designed for use in industrial, environmental monitoring, and smart city applications it is the most advanced particle measurement solution available on the market.

It features advanced technical innovations that enable ultra-precise measurements to be obtained, even in extreme climatic conditions. Including direct measurement of PM1, PM2.5 in both µg/m3 and pcs/L, compared with most alternatives that only measure one fraction, and smart sample conditioning to remove humidity effects.
