|Air Quality Monitor|
|Description||Air Quality Monitor,|
An Air Particulate Monitor based on the design from https://luftdaten.info/en/home-en/
It monitors PM2.5 and PM10 particulates along with humidity and temperature. Based of a infra red scatter and wavelength sensing to determine particulate size.
We have a number of sensors up in the Aberdeen area, you can see the geographical map of our current registered sensors in the link below.
The original Design -> https://luftdaten.info/en/construction-manual/
Our redesign, it is essentially the same device, but in a box instead of guttering pipe -> https://sarcoptic.net/AirMon-Config.pdf
Warning: this document is a work in progress and should be treated with caution
Flashing the devices
If the device needs re-flashed, the apple desktop in the hackerspace can flash the devices, by logging in as 'north57' and running the shell script in '~/Projects/FineDustSensor'
The data is sent with the long form ID of the sensor to medavi you can find the archived data at:
A subset of the data is then pulled to the luftdaten archive for display on the map but this is now indexed by the shorter ID there doesn't seem to be a way to know the relation without prior knowledge.
