  • Six Particle Channels
    Six preset particle channels (0.3, 0.5, 0.7, 1.0, 2.0, 5.0) show cumulative counts in real time, with selectable count units.
  • Menu-Driven Command Set for Out of the Box Operation
    A simple touch of a button sets sample time, and basic setup parameters such as date/time and communications settings. Remote operation via RS–232 or RS–485 communications port allows extensive control, including all front-panel operations.
  • Flexible Data Interfaces
    Stores up to 8,000 records for printer output, Excel® formatted output, or networked datalogging via the included single computer software (Comet)
  • 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.
