During recent years ECN developed high quality sensors for pollutants in ambient air. Currently developed sensors for PM2.5, PM10 and NO2 are applied for third parties. Field of application are urban air quality and emission monitoring from transit storage and handling of dry bulk like ore and coal. Low cost high quality sensors are of importance to operate high density networks which are desired both for urban areas and around transit areas but are not available. The sensors are placed in a weatherproof enclosure, the AirBox. The AirBox communicates by GPRS every 10 minutes with a server to upload the data and to accept new firmware if requested. Meanwhile data is kept safe locally on a SD card. The sensor set up is modular. The box is battery operated and usually mounted on a streetlight for charging at night time.
