Originally developed for the field, the miniPCS System is a self-contained, battery-operated Mie-scattering-based particle sizer and counter capable of measuring particles from 0.5 to 1000 μm in densities in excess of 10,000 per cubic centimeter. No external acquisition hardware is required; a computer is used simply as an interface to view the processed data output of the system.￼
The acquisition hardware features a differential logarithmic amplifier and 14-bit digitization which give the miniPCS unprecedented dynamic range and resolution and make it impervious to fluctuations in illumination. Data is recorded onto an MMC memory card. On-board GPS records the sensor’s position and time, and the wireless transmitter/receiver can be used for off-board triggering and life monitoring.
With its native wireless design, the miniPCS is perfect for integration into any project. For more information, feel free to contact us and inquire about custom solutions.
The miniPCS probe is protected by U.S. Patent No. 6,580,503.
