Sensirion announces that the SPS30 particulate matter (PM) sensor has achieved MCERTS certification, which proves the sensor performance. In addition, the certification confirms that the SPS30 can be easily integrated into applications that comply with the European Air Quality Standard DIN EN 15267. The SPS30 is also the first mass-market particulate matter sensor to receive MCERTS certification.
The MCERTS certification scheme was established by the UK’s Environment Agency and is built around international and European standards to ensure high-quality environmental data monitoring. The SPS30 underwent laboratory and field tests and has been proven to fulfill the latest MCERTS and associated DIN EN 15267 European air quality standards. Compliance with the above-mentioned standards requires low intra-model variability (≤ 5 µg/m3), making the SPS30 the first choice for integration into applications requiring high precision. The certification is issued by the Sira Certification Service, one of the leading notified bodies in Europe. They are also accredited according to ISO/IEC 17065 UKAS and are part of the Canadian Standards Association (CSA Group).
The SPS30 particulate matter sensor marks a technological breakthrough in optical PM sensors. Its measurement principle is based on laser scattering and makes use of Sensirion’s innovative contamination-resistance technology. This technology, together with high-quality and long-lasting components, enables precise measurements from its first operation to over a lifetime of more than 10 years. In addition, Sensirion’s advanced algorithms provide superior PM2.5 performance and higher-resolution particle size binning, opening up new possibilities for the detection of different sorts of environmental dust and other particles. With dimensions of only 41 mm x 41 mm x 12 mm, the SPS30 is also the perfect solution for applications where size is of paramount importance, such as wall-mounted or compact air quality devices.
