June 2013 Products/Showcase Award

June 6, 2013
This month, we’re featuring UEi’s AQM4 Air Quality Meter, the winner in the Instrumentation/Diagnostics category.
UEi Takes Top Prize with the AQM4 Air Quality Meter The AQM4 meter measures CO2 levels, CO levels, air temperature, dew point, wet
bulb temperature, and humidity making it ideal for indoor air quality (IAQ) diagnosis. The portable instrument uses NDIR (non-dispersive infrared) technology for CO measurement ensuring reliability and long-term stability. It includes a complete kit with humidity reference salts, software, interface cable, AC adapter, and carrying case.

It’s perfect for verifying HVAC systems performance and air ventilation control as poor indoor air quality causes tiredness, inability to concentrate, and even illness. IAQ monitoring and surveying especially for CO levels and air ventilation has become widely applied in public offices, classrooms, factories, hospitals, and hotels.        circle 145
