Dwyer Instruments' AQStick Ambient Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) Monitor features LED lights that change color in accordance with the air quality
Dwyer Instruments' AQStick Ambient Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) Monitor monitors ambient air quality by detecting the VOC content in the air. A computer’s USB port provides power for the sensor and the LED lights, which change color in accordance with the ambient air quality. In order to correspond with ASHRAE’s standards for air quality, the VOC reading from the monitor is converted from a percentage contaminated to an equivalent PPM reading of CO2. The percentage contaminated multiplied by 2000 PPM of CO2 gives the equivalent concentration of CO2. From the factory, the LED is green under 1000 PPM CO2, yellow for 1000 to 1500 PPM CO2 and red above 1500 PPM CO2. These factory values can be changed using the online software. When using the online software, the AQStick ambient VOC monitor can log and graph how building conditions change over time.
