Fidas® 200 E

EN 16450 approved fine dust aerosol spectrometer for simultaneous measurement of PM2.5 and PM10, featuring a separate sensor for existing roof glands

The Fidas® 200 E version shown here consists of a 19" plug-in unit and a remote sensor (connection length 3 m, other sizes on request) for use in air-conditioned monitoring stations (temperature range 5 - 40 °C). The remote sensor, flanged to the lower end of the aerosol sampling tube, greatly simplifies installation in stations with an existing roof penetration. Variants of the Fidas® 200 E are the basic Fidas® 200 and the Fidas® 200 S (with stainless steel weatherproof housing) designed for outdoor installation.
