Fidas ® 200 series FIDAS ® 200 / FIDAS ® 200 S / FIDAS ® 200 E Fidas ® 200 is a fine dust measurement system for regulatory ambient air quality measurements. This model is typically installed in an existing shelter. For flexible installation we also offer Fidas ® 200 E, which features a detached sensor unit that fits to the bottom end of the aerosol inlet tube. The distance between controller and sensor can be up to 6 m. Fidas ® 200 S consists of a Fidas ® 200, integrated in a weather proof housing. The Fidas ® 200 S is designed as a standalone device for outdoor measurements, e.g. on the Zugspitze (Germany´s highest mountain) or at the North Sea Coast. The Fidas ® 200 / S / E ambient air monitors are certified by German Umweltbundesamt & DEFRA/mCERTs for continuous, simultaneous measurement of PM 2.5 and PM 10 . Fidas 200 Fidas 200 S All Fidas ® 200 / S / E monitors use the approved measurement technology of optical light scattering of single particles and are equipped with a LED light source with stable output and long lifetime. In addition, the systems provide a filter holder for the insertion of an absolute filter (ø 47 or 50 mm). This enables for example a subsequent chemical analysis of the composition of the aerosol. All Fidas ® 200 / S / E monitors operate with a volumetric flow of 0.3 m 3 / h and are equipped with a Sigma-2 sampling head according to VDI 2119-4, which allows representative measurements even at strong winds. The sampling system with drying section (Intelligent Aerosol Drying System – IADS) prevents erroneous results caused by high air humidity. An additional weather station offers reliable measurement values of ambient temperature, air pressure and relative humidity. In addition to the measurement data with high temporal resolution, the Fidas ® 200 / S / E monitors can be equipped with a standardised sampling head for PM 2.5 or PM 10 (Leckel PMX-PNK). By weighing of the filter, the measurement data can be validated gravimetrically on site. ecotech.com | 3
Very efficient. Competitive pricing. The reminders, I’m so busy in my job that it’s so great to have a reminder to do something. It really helps me.
I’m very happy.
