TSI BlueSky | Air Quality Monitor

Contact Instrument Solutions

Air pollution - caused by air pollutants such as chemicals, smoke, dust or allergens - is an increasing concern in cities but can also be localised to a community, neighbourhood, or even a single building. Tiny airborne particulates (such as PM2.5) often emitted from vehicles are especially dangerous because they can penetrate deep into the lungs and cause a wide range of adverse health effects.  The TSI BlueSky air quality system is the ideal product for monitoring these and is able to transmit secure data 24/7 for remote viewing via the cloud.

TSI BlueSky hyperlocal urban air quality monitoring

Specifically designed for the outdoor environment mounted on poles and fence lines they can be powered if required using an optional solar system that comes with a back-up battery pack for night time use as well as a power source on overcast days.

Features & Benefits                  

  • Precision data – TSI factory-calibrated PM sensor with the option to program a custom calibration factor
  • Real-time map of live data – ability to stream and display real-time data from the cloud using WiFi, without additional software or an App   
  • Unique laser-based light scattering particle sensors – simultaneously outputs PM1.0, PM2.5, PM4.0, PM10, temperature and humidity   
  • Designed for outdoor use – performs consistently in a wide range of humidity and temperatures, and protected from rain, insects and direct sunlight   
  • Barometric pressure measurement
  • Pin-point levels of gas pollution such as CO(Carbon Dioxide), NO(Nitrogen Dioxide), CO (Carbon Monoxide), O3 (Ozone) and SO(Sulfur Dioxide)
  • Three ways to download data – from TSI Link Software (.csv file), using the API data service or from the removable SD card   
  • Data buffering – internally logs data (up to 1 week at 15 min interval via on board memory) for data redundancy   
  • Easy and quick installation
  • Optional solar system, outdoor enclosure and cellular modem accessories available (excludes SIM)

Common customer questions & answers

QQuestion How long do the gas cells last on the TSI BlueSky devices?
AAnswer TSI recommend a 1 year replacement cycle for the PM (particulate) sensor as well as for the CO, NO2, 03 and SO2 gas cells. The CO2 is a 3-year cycle and the temperature, humidity & barometric pressure module is recommended every 5-years.
