Easily monitor key air quality components
Volatile Organic Compounds
Gases that are emitted into the air from products or processes. Some are harmful by themselves, including some that cause cancer. In addition, some can react with other gases and form other air pollutants.
A common byproduct of manufacturing processes. The level of carbon dioxide emitted needs to be closely monitored to ensure that levels are within parameters that are deemed safe.
Air Quality Index
Tells you about the levels of air pollution and provides recommended actions and health advice. The index is numbered 1-10 and divided into four bands to provide details about air pollution levels.
How does the technology work?
A small, easy-to-install air quality sensor measures and records the levels of organic compounds in the surrounding area.
Using a microcomputer within the sensor, we are able to upload the air quality data to the cloud where it can be accessed and analysed by specialists who can give feedback on the results through easy to follow data visualisations.
Benefits of implementing sensor technology
Keep your workforce safe from harmful pollutants
Track your data and ensure you are complying with air quality standards
Maximise efficiency by switching on ventilation systems at the correct time
“Exitex required a solution for monitoring manufacturing devices on the factory floor to provide insights into preventive maintenance, usage, and productivity of machines. The Smart Manufacturing Data Hub was able to help us to achieve our goals.”
