Product Image of Particulates: Remote Dust Monitor Model ES-642

Met One's ES-642 Remote Dust Monitor is an industrial air-quality sensor designed to provide accurate measurements of particle concentration in both indoor and outdoor environments. The unit is supplied in a rugged weatherproof enclosure. It includes an LCD display to provide information about particulate concentration, flow rate, instrument status and power. The electronics and optical system are protected from moisture by a built-in intake heater that is humidity level controlled. The heater power is regulated to maintain a minimum humidity level. Additional features include a purge air system and an automatic zero calibration routine. 

The sensor can be wall-mounted or installed on a vertical mast up to 3 inches in diameter.

The ES-642 is supplied with a 10ft cable with connector for power (15 to 40VDC) and signal output.

The ES-642 measures particulate concentration using a highly sensitive forward scatter laser nephelometer, having a measurement range of 0 to 100mg/cubic meter or 0 to 100,000μg/cubic meter. Optional sharp-cut cyclones are used to set the measure level of the ES-642. As supplied, it provides particulate monitoring for TSP, but with the addition of the sharp-cut cyclone it can be set for particulates smaller than PM10 or smaller than PM2.5 or PM1. The accuracy of the instrument is +/-5% based on a traceable PSL 0.6 micron reference standard.

  • Designed to provide accurate information on particle concentration and operate continuously in adverse environments
  • Special features such as the purge air system and automatic zero calibration enable the monitor to operate 24/7
  • A sheath air system isolates the aerosol in the chamber to keep the optics clean for long term reliability and low maintenance
  • LCD display provided information on operation including: power, heater power, flow operation, status and particulate concentration
