Fidas® 100 — Environmental Particulate Monitor

Fidas® 100 — Environmental Particulate monitor for emission and workplace measurements

DescriptionFIDAS 110 / 110 Model

The Fidas® range of Environmental particulate monitors is offered in different model versions to provide a cost effective solution for specific applications in the reliable indoor / outdoor air quality measurement (IDQ / ODQ). All Fidas® systems are equipped with a LED light source with high light stability and long lifetime and an inline filter holder to allow for collection of the contaminant on a filter media and subsequent investigation of the composition of the aerosol.

The Fidas® 100 has been developed for the reliable measurement in indoor locations of PM1, PM2.5, of the A-dust, the alveolar fraction (PM4), the thoracic fraction (PM10) as well as the E-dust, the inhalable fraction (TSP).

For workplace measurements, particles of up to 100 µm can be collected and measured using the Fidas® 100 combined with a sampling head Sigma-2 (VDI 2119-4).

For the emission measurements in exhaust air channels, the Fidas® 100 can be connected with an isokinetic sampling probe. The instruments can also measure the time-resolved particle concentration and the particle distribution in the particle size range from 0.18 – 18 µm (optional 0.5 to 40µm or 2 to 100µm).

Both devices have a collective volumetric flowrate of 5 l/min or 0.3 m3/h.

Remote maintenance and data access is also available.
