Learn How to Meet EPA, EU, and other Performance Targets

A Guide to Accurate Particulate Matter Measurements with Air Sensors

Learn how USEPA  performance protocols help ensure accurate air sensor data

Air sensors are increasingly recognized as a valuable tool for indicative and non-regulatory supplemental and informational monitoring (NSIM). To support a broader understanding and more effective use of this technology, the USEPA recently released performance standards for air sensors will help to better characterize the performance of commercially available air sensors in a clear and standardized way. This guide provides more information on these performance metrics and best practices for collecting accurate data with low-cost sensors.

This guide will help you understand: 

  • What challenges currently exist for the broader use of low-cost sensors?
  • How can low-cost sensor performance be objectively evaluated?
  • What performance standards are in place for low-cost sensors, and what do they mean for networks employing these technologies?
  • What role does calibration play in optimizing low-cost sensor performance?
  • How can low-cost sensors be used effectively for non-regulatory supplemental and informational monitoring?

Learn how to collect accurate air sensor measurements

  • Understand the USEPA, EU, and other performance standards

    Who are the organizations which have set forth performance metrics, and what do these metrics mean for the future of air quality monitoring? Why are performance standards important for low-cost air sensors?

    Explore these standards and the ways they help solve existing challenges for low-cost sensors in our guide.
  • Evaluate air sensor performance based on these metrics

    What evaluations can be carried out to assess low-cost air quality sensor performance? How can organizations address the challenges that exist for low-cost sensors and move forward with accurate air quality measurements?

    Our guide includes a checklist on how to carry out sensor performance evaluations.
  • Move forward with accurate, calibrated sensor data

    Why is calibration important to reaching these performance targets, and how does calibrated data from low-cost air quality sensors compare to other air quality monitoring measurements?

    More on the benefits of calibration and Clarity’s Remote Calibration model is included in our guide.

Clarity’s Remote Calibration model ensures that decision-making is based on accurate data that is calibrated for the unique conditions of the monitoring site, while also reducing the operational costs of the traditional calibration process. Remote Calibration allows for ongoing data calibration over the course of a monitoring project, keeping accurate data a long-term priority.
