Air is something vital: to monitor its healthiness, the new Philips Professional Display Solutions solution “Air Quality Sensor” is plug-and-play, perfectly fits with Philips monitor lines and is equipped with a digital display for greater ease of use.
The new plug and play PPDS “Air Quality Sensor” solution accompanied by a Philips professional display allows schools and companies (including businesses and hospitality facilities) to easily monitor the air quality in classrooms and workplaces, contributing improve the well-being, health and safety of staff, students and customers, as well as reduce the spread of potentially dangerous viruses.
Designed to offer a new solution based on customer needs, this PPDS Air Quality Sensor is small in size, can be easily installed and connected to Philips professional displays in any environment, using a specially designed bracket and a mounting kits supplied in the package. Powered by a single USB-A cable, the Air Quality Sensor is compatible with the latest Philips Professional PPDS TVs, digital signage monitors and interactive displays.
On a technological level, the plug and play Air Quality Sensor solution features four advanced sensors that monitor air quality 24/7.
In particular, the monitored values are:
• Temperature: it affects the rate of virus infection and impacts performance in the classroom or workplace
• Humidity: viral particles can remain highly infectious with humidity levels below 30% and above 55%
• Carbon dioxide: CO2 is an excellent indicator of indoor air quality and proper ventilation of a work area or classroom
• Particulate matter: higher levels of particle pollution can lead to greater risks of infections, not only COVID-19, but other diseases
The data obtained from the sensor, even in different locations, is analyzed and displayed in real time through an easy-to-use dashboard and app, available anywhere and anytime, with an archive of historical data available for reporting and data analysis. Whenever the air quality falls below a safety standard, the sensor sends alerts, on the basis of which action can be taken to improve the situation.
The app also provides targeted advice on how to improve air quality based on sensor readings, be it simple tasks like opening doors and windows, turning on purifiers (if available) and adjusting the temperature of the room, up to more incisive actions such as asking staff to temporarily move to other areas of the building.
Chris Colpaert, general manager of PPDS, commented: “With the spread of viruses and other potentially harmful pollutants, monitoring and managing air quality has never been more important. With Air Quality Sensor we have made this process simple, continuous and convenient.”
