AQ Guard Smart 1200

Air quality analyzer for monitoring fine particulate matter and pollutant gases (PM1, PM2.5, PM4, PM10, TSP, SO2, NO2, O3, CO, TVOC, CO2) under demanding environmental conditions incl. GPS

AQ Guard Smart 1200 is a compact and cloud-enabled air quality measurement device. The system is designed for the requirements of outdoor air measurement in the smart city environment to improve granularity while maintaining high comparability to official measurements for environmental monitoring and health protection.

The simultaneous measurement of pollutant gases makes the device perfect for measuring in environmentally sensitive areas, especially where they are already common or required by law.
