Particle Sensing

Particle Sensor UnitPPD60PV-T2

Based on the light scattering method, same as particle counters, it detects air borne particles from cleanliness class 100,000 to 1,000,000.


  • Easily detects the particles sized over 0.5μm (approx).

  • Air is self-aspirated by the air current generation mechanism with a built-in heater.

  • Easy maintenance. Sustainable high sensitivity.

  • Dual output of Pulse and analog Voltage.

How It Work

  • Heater (resistor) generating updraft. Infrared light beam from LED has been focused with Lens to sensing point at the center.
  • Airborne particles have been taken into the sensor box with the updraft.
  • Particle passing through sensing point scatters light, and receptor receive scattered light through the lens and transformed into pulse signal. Pulse per unit time is proportional to the particle concentration. Pulse signal are to be converted into voltage output. (PPD20V)


Environment monitoring of cleanliness class 100,000 to 1,000,000.
