  • Product Overview

    Environmental Protection Agency has concluded that the air quality indoors can be up to 10 times worse than the air quality outdoors – even in the most industrialized cities. Yet, with this knowledge, it is hard to know whether or not you need to be concerned. How clean is the air in my home? In my office? This consumer air quality monitor is a breakthrough product that can accurately answer these questions and determine the indoor air quality wherever you need it.


    Laser Technology

    Laser particle counters are sophisticated monitors used for the quick and accurate measurement of airborne particle concentrations. Traditional units are extremely high priced and are often used in hospitals, laboratories and clean room facilities – where clean air is critical. This innovative air quality monitor uses the same laser technology as the traditional units to give you the same accurate readings. However, this monitor has been redesigned to expressly meet the needs of home users – at an affordable price.

    Particle Counts

    As air is cycled through the unit, both small and large particles are counted and displayed. Small particles counted include: fine dust, bacteria, mold, smoke, and smog. Large particles include: coarse dust, pollens, larger bacteria, plant spores, pet dander and dust mite feces. Anyone with allergies or asthma can use this information to specifically monitor their trouble areas. Someone with an allergy to pollen, for example, will be especially interested in their air’s large particle count.

    PC Interface Option

    The PC Interface Option has all the features of the standard DC1100 PRO, but also allows you to download the air quality data to a PC for graphing and analysis. A 9-pin serial cable (not included) links the DC1100 to your PC or laptop to transfer the data as it samples. To use this feature, you must connect a 9-pin serial cable from the unit to a COM port on your PC. If your PC lacks any COM ports, you’ll need to purchase a COM Port to USB adapter to use with the cable. You can then use any terminal program on the PC to communicate with the DC1100. Not all operating systems come with terminal programs. If yours does not, a terminal program must be purchased separately. Serial cables are available at most office supply stores, and terminal programs are easy to download. More detailed information and instructions are provided in the Owner’s Manual.

    NOTE - Any software that comes with the cable must be installed before using.

    DC1100 PRO vs. DC1100 Standard

    DC1100 Pro has all the features of the standard DC1100 but with increased sensitivity - detecting particles down to 0.5 microns in size. The large particle size range is calibrated to 2.5 microns and above. The increased sensitivity (0.5 microns) makes this monitor perfect for those with more severe allergies who want to ensure that the air is clean of even very small particles. It is a great tool for helping to monitor and track how well your air purifier is cleaning your air.

    Portable and Versatile

    The unit is small and lightweight, allowing you to easily test any area of your home. Take it anywhere you spend large portions of your day indoors. Use the information to take action to protect you and your family and give you peace of mind knowing that the air you breathe is safe and healthy.

      I purchased the DC1100 Pro model because I needed something to help me to test small particles in the air .I search from the net to know this device can detect the particles less than 0.5 microns. It's very useful to detect the health air quality for me.
      I just got an air purifier to clean the air in my bedroom,but the sensor of the purifier doesn't so sensitive to the bad air condition. So I need some reliable data to set the purifier's speed to purify the air. When I got the device I can easily know the air quality indoor and outdoor,so I can open the window for fresh air or not.
      It can record the data within an hour,that was very helpful to calculate the air purifier purification efficiency,so I can calculate how much the air purifier effect I need to buy next time. Also I use it to record all the data during my sleep. When I was asleep, I turn the air purifier to the lowest speed to reduce the noise,using the device I can easily to know the air quality during the whole night, after that I assured use the air purifier all the night.
      DC1100 Pro is very useful to monitor the indoor pollution, but without DC power it can't use to test the air quality in my car, so I got a mobile power to use it everywhere. BTW the 1700 version is a bit expensive, or I may choose it instead of DC1100 Pro.
      In short, DC1100 Pro is the most cost-effective equipment for individual users.

      Works Great But Not Portable

      Must be plugged into outlet. Works great, but must plug into an outlet in each room tested.

        - Seems to be sensitive enough to pick up increased air particle count when i walk into the room and/or start working or moving items.
        - No date/time stamp for historical results unless you use in conjuction with the computer.
        - Happy with purchase. Trying to whip my basement work area into shape and this allows me to gauge the results of my efforts as I clean, install air filters, etc etc.

                I use this product in a cube farm full of developers. I export the data to be graphed via gnuplot. It serves as an excellent visual representation of relative air quality in the office. This serves a number of functions, not the least being informing the workers about the details and quality of their workspace.

                    This device is good to see if your air filter is doing it's job. I can easily see big differences between the readings where the air filter is vs where there is no filter.
                    This is a very simple device so don't expect it to provide you with any real meaningful quantitave data.

                      I use the unit to monitor PM2.5 for both indoor and outdoor. The result matches the official published data pretty well. When the reading is getting high in the room, I will turn on the air purifier.

                      Overall operation is easy. However, you can only review the histry recorded data backforwards, can't review the recorded data forwards.
