Improvements in Data Collection and Documentation for Remote or Unattended Air Monitoring Applications


F. M. Gavila


The historical air sampling techniques and equipment utilized for remote or unattended air sampling applications are discussed and reviewed. An illustration of the use of microprocessor controlled air-sampling systems for remote and/or unattended air sampling locations is presented. Digital air sampling systems which record and display STP flow rates and volumes along with several on-board data calculations of key data parameters are discussed. An illustration of software that is available to print a management report, store data to file and for on-line communication with the instrument in the field is presented. The software enables a user to download data after the sampling event and to view current values of data collection parameters on-line via an RS-232 communication port.
