Indoor Air Quality
Airthinx Advanced IAQ Monitoring
To meet the growing demand for Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) management, Airthinx delivers the first-of-its-kind IAQ monitoring solution. Airthinx works ‘Out of the Box’ and is so easy to deploy, its onboard SIM card means there is virtually no installation required.
In comparison to static monitoring, continuous monitoring means it is possible to identify the causes of environmental changes more easily and react in real-time to the variability of air pollution.
Airthinx’s revolutionary solution utilises Netronix’s innovative core technology to achieve an easy to use cloud-based system designed specifically for continuous long-term monitoring with a compact, low-cost, wireless device and 9 built in sensors (PM 1, PM 2.5, PM 10, CO2, CH2O, VOCs, Temperature, Humidity & Pressure).
Airthinx brings users the most accurate, precise industrial level measurements, never before seen information via instantaneous and real-time alerts, a better understanding of IAQ data, the most accurate assessment of exposure, simple IAQ management, and healthier indoor spaces, everywhere in the world.
PM1 PM2.5 PM10
Dust, fungi, bacteria, pollen, & diesel exhaust are common examples of Particulate Matter. The smaller these particles are, the worse they are for your health, especially because they are invisible. PM10 is ⅕ the size of a single strand of human hair. Particulate less than 2.5 microns in diameter lodge deep inside the lungs and blood stream. PM 1, the smallest of the Particulates, linger in the atmosphere for weeks at a time, are freely transported by air currents, and are most likely to cause infection by bacteria released by just a single cough or sneeze.
VOCs, volatile organic compounds, are cancer-causing chemicals released by cleaning agents. According to the World Health Organisation, optimal VOC levels are lower than 300 ppm.
Optimal relative humidity is between 30% to 60%. Exposure to conditions from building decay, water damage, poor plumbing and legacy pollutants are exacerbated by high humidity. Mould, which can grow as quickly as 48 hours in in high humid conditions, triggers asthma, respiratory symptoms, irritation of the eyes, nose and mouth.
Optimal temperature is between 21 and 24 degrees celsius, Anything less than 21 can result in feeling chilled and anything over 24 can result in feeling sticky.
During an 8 hour day, the standard exposure rate to carbon dioxide is 5000 ppm (part per million). As more people occupy a space, carbon dioxide levels spike, increasing the likelihood of sleepiness, distraction, lethargy and affecting productivity, concentration, and work performance.
Formaldehyde is a naturally occurring organic compound with the formula CH2O (H-CHO). It is the simplest of the aldehydes (R-CHO) and is also known by its systematic name methanol. The common name of this substance comes from its similarity and relation to formic acid. It is a very dangerous gas that gets emitted by wooden painted surfaces or carpets.
Atmospheric pressure, sometimes also called barometric pressure, is the pressure within the atmosphere of Earth (or that of another planet). In most circumstances atmospheric pressure is closely approximated by the hydrostatic pressure caused by the weight of air above the measurement point.
Cloud-based Real-time Monitoring
Airthinx™ is a fully-hosted, web-based application that enables end users to perform real-time indoor air quality (IAQ) monitoring and historical analysis of captured data, as well as, to collaborate with peers in an intuitive web-based environment.
Airthinx provides end-users access to their data anytime, anywhere enabling real-time monitoring, analysis, and collaboration.
Airthinx™ is also available on your tablet and mobile phone.
Airthinx makes data truly available on the go. It has been designed on an architecture that makes it accessible on any mobile device without any loss of features and functionality, while maintaining an outstanding UI/UX.
Why monitoring with Airthinx™?
The challenge of gathering and collecting data without lag time is accomplished with unparalleled security.
The Airthinx device utilises the Netronix IoT platform and that ensures the highest standards of security, reliability and network scalability, enabling the large scale & rapid deployment of multiple devices in any indoor built environment.
Airthinx does away with costly installation, maintenance and operation of a solution. Unlike conventional stand alone systems, the Airthinx device carries IoT in its DNA.
The hybrid solution uses edge processing where part of the system functionality is local and part of the system processing is on the cloud.
The robust cascaded cloud architecture enables adding function specific modules like artificial intelligence.
