The GT-521 is a full-featured, battery-operated, portable laser particle counter that provides the functionality of a bench unit with the convenience of a handheld! It can data-log particle counts continuously or send them to a network.


  • Dual Programmable Channels
    Two programmable particle channels with a range of 0.3 – 5.0 microns each show differential or cumulative particle counts in real time, with selectable count units.
  • Simple and Powerful Menu-Driven Command Set
    A simple touch of a button sets particle sizes, sample time, alarm settings, and basic setup parameters such as date/time and communications settings. Remote operation via RS-232 or RS-485 communications ports allows extensive control, including all front-panel operations.
  • Flexible Data Interfaces
    Stores up to 4,000 records for printer output, Excel® formatted output, or networked datalogging via the included single computer software (GT-Comm).
  • Temperature and Relative Humidity Option
    A plug-and-play option that immediately adds ambient temperature and relative humidity capabilities to the displayed and logged data.
