Dust sensor is a kind of sensor device which uses optical method to measure the characteristics of micro particles suspended in gas or liquid media. It has the characteristics of non-contact measurement with optical measurement technology and no disturbance to the measured object.

Characteristics of Dust Concentration Sensor

1. Dust sensor can sense smoke and pollen produced by tobacco, house dust and other small particles more than 1 micron.

2. Small size, light weight, easy to install;

3. 5V input circuit for signal processing;

4. The built-in airflow generator can attract the external atmosphere by itself;

5. Dust sensor is easy to maintain and can maintain its characteristics for a long time.

Principle of Dust Concentration Sensor

Particles and molecules will scatter light under the irradiation of light, and at the same time absorb part of the energy of irradiated light. When a beam of parallel monochromatic light enters the measured particle field, it will be affected by scattering and absorption around the particle, and the light intensity will be attenuated.In this way, the relative attenuation rate of incident light passing through the measured concentration field can be obtained.The relative attenuation rate can basically linearly reflect the relative concentration of dust in the field to be measured.The magnitude of light intensity is directly proportional to the intensity of the electro-optical signal, and the relative attenuation rate can be obtained by measuring the electro-optical signal.

Application of Dust Concentration Sensor

Dust sensors are widely used in atmospheric measurement, fire, smoke measurement and other fields. It can also be used to detect the breakage of all kinds of dust collectors, to measure the dust removal efficiency of all kinds of dust collectors, and to detect indoor air, such as air purifiers, etc. to provide reliable signals for automatic control in these fields.
