recordum – airpointer

airpointer_logoThe Airpointer®, designed and manufactured by recordum Messtechnik GmbH (Austria), is a compact, modular multi-gas air quality monitoring system. It is the world’s first ‘out-of-the-box plug and play’ AQ monitoring system implementing USEPA approved/EU certified reference methods gas analysers. Thanks to its reduced size, no floor/road space is needed. It is easy to transport and has maintenance costs and carbon footprint reduced up to 90%.

  • The airpointer‘s modular design comprising a base unit, analyzing modules and sensor modules allows for a configuration according to different application requirements.
  • The airpointer‘s compact design enables it to be installed almost everywhere. Due to its optimized thermal management, the airpointer consumes less power compared to conventional monitoring stations.
  • The airpointer offers a choice of analysis modules using type approved reference methods for monitoring airborne pollutants (SO2, NO2/NOX, CO, O3, and PM) classified as relevant by the EU, the WHO, the US-EPA and further responsible organizations all over the world.
    A fast optical system or an approved PM analyzer is used for monitoring PM.
  • The integrated data management systemrecords monitoring data of the airpointer‘s own analysis modules as well as various external third-party sensors.
  • An internal web server enables data retrieval by using any Internet connection. Data are available worldwide via access authorisation and can be presented in clearly arranged graphics. All parameters can be displayed locally or online.

Airpointer Module

Around 400 Airpointer units are currently deployed around the world for a wide range of air quality monitoring applications. A monitoring network made up of 54 airpointer units specially configured for tropical climates is currently being installed by Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA).
