Clarity Black Carbon Module

The Black Carbon Module is based on microAeth® Black Carbon measurement technology from AethLabs, and integrates seamlessly into Clarity networks. Designed to serve as an outdoor measurement point mounted on street poles and fence lines, this device is intended for prolonged multi-month measurement initiatives that demand minimal upkeep and rare on-site inspections. 

Use the Black Carbon Module to measure this extremely harmful component of particulate matter, with impacts ranging from human health to reduced agricultural productivity, and even global warming. Real-time, 5-wavelength spectrum measurements provide insight into the composition of light-absorbing carbonaceous particles and helps to distinguish among the different optical signatures of various combustion sources such as diesel, woodsmoke, biomass and tobacco.
