Gaia Air Quality Monitors - Product Series

Udział: aqicn.org/gaia/

The GAIA Air Quality Monitoring Stations are accurate and easy to use devices designed by the Earth Sensing labs. They are suitable for affordable an budget - as low as 100 per year for the most recommended device: The GAIA A12.




GAIA A12 Monitoring Station

Accurate and Reliable

All the air quality monitoring stations have been carefully designed for highly reliable and accurate monitoring, using 3 redundant sensors and high-quality components. All the stations are tested individually, and produced in small batches to ensure the best quality.

Designed for efficiency

The GAIA is also specially designed for outdoor use with IP67 waterproof material and UV-proof ABS plastic. It can also be used for indoor usage in both residential and industrial environments.

Cloud System

The GAIA station provides data as accurate as of the traditional high-end professional air quality monitoring stations (e.g. using BAM or TOEM) but at only 1/20th of their price. Together with the GAIA big-data cloud system, hundreds of stations can be deployed, maintained, and analyzed in a single city in just a few clicks.

Gaia A18: Solar Powered & LoRA radio


Gaia A18 product view

Overview

The GAIA A18 is an improved GAIA A12 design, with solar panel power and long-distance radio, allowing the station to operate in areas where either power supply or WiFi connectivity is unavailable.

Battery and Solar Powered

The GAIA A18 can operate using the battery for seven days without a recharge (when using LoRa). The solar panel battery can recharge the battery within a few hours under direct sun conditions. Using both the solar panel and the battery, the station can operate forever off-grid, provided there are a few sunny days every week.

Battery & Power Consumption:

  • Battery Model: 18650 LiPO battery (standard battery)
  • Capacity: 3400 mAh 3.7V (12.5 Wh)
  • Lifetime: 7+ days without solar harvesting (using LoRa)
  • Sensing Cycle: 30 seconds every 5 minutes (configurable)
  • Power Consumption: 130µA in sleep mode, ~100mA in sensing mode

Solar Panel:

  • Max output: 8V 500mA (4W)
  • Dimensions: 220 * 130 * 7mm
  • Weight: 260g

Monitoring Device:

  • Dimensions: 115 * 90 * 55 mm, excluding antenna
  • Weight: 450 grams, excluding battery
  • Weight: 600 grams, including battery

Additional accessories included with the station:

  • 10m waterproof power cable
  • 3400 mAh 18650 battery
  • fixation straps

Optional extensions (let us know at ordering time):

  • Optional SD-Card storage for off-network operation.
  • Optional GPS module for geolocation
  • Optional high gain WiFi antenna

Enhanced Connectivity using LoRa ("Long Range")

The GAIA A18 can operate using WIFI like the GAIA A12. But it also comes with "long-range" connectivity support (LoRA), allowing you to locate your station several hundreds of meters up to several kilometers from your network gateway (depending on the line of sight). The GAIA A18 comes with an external WIFI/LoRA gateway.

The GAIA A18 also contains an optional internal GPS sensor to make it easier to locate your remote stations.

Pricing

The GAIA A18 with both solar panel+battery and LoRa features connectivity costs 350.
It is also possible to get the A18 with only one feature (either Solar or LoRa) for 280.
Support for the GPS cost an additional 50.

  • DC Adapter: Products are shipped with localized power plug adaptors (USB power supply) for US, EU, AU and UK.

Installation & Mounting Instructions

Mounting:

Mounting with straps
Mounting with screws

There are 2 options for mounting the monitoring box:

  • Using screws: The GAIA enclosure is made of a standard outdoor ABS box, which comes with 4 holes dedicated to screwing the box.
  • Using standard plastic straps: The GAIA station is delivered with 2 straps of 1 meter, which can be used to fix the station on a pole.

Distance:

  • The station comes with a 10-meter (33-foot) power cable (5V with DC3.5 connector), so the station should be located no more than 10 meters away from the nearest power source. If needed, we can provide a longer power cable (contact us in this case).
  • The monitoring station uses a regular external WIFI antenna, which allows the station to be at most 20 meters away from the nearest WiFi access point. In case a longer distance is needed, an enhanced external antenna can be used (contact us in this case).

Location:

Average daily traffic
(vehicles per day)
Minimum distance in meters
≤1,000 10
10,000 10
15,000 20
20,000 30
40,000 50
70,000 100
≥110,000 250

Overall, the most important is to place the station somewhere protected from direct winds, rain, and dust sources.

For official stations, there are two more requirements, with the intent to locate the station on sites representative of the ambient air quality levels:

  • Height: The station should be mounted at a height above a minimum of 1.5 meters. The objective is to prevent dust resuspension, which can happen if someone is walking near the station.
  • Distance from road traffic: The station should be located at least 10 meters away from the nearest road. See the table on the right for full specifications.

O pomiarach jakości powietrza i zanieczyszczeń:

O Poziomach Jakości Powietrza

- Wartości Indeksu Jakości Powietrza (AQI)Poziomy zagrożenia zdrowia
0 - 50 Dobra 0-50: Dobra - Jakość powietrza jest uznawana za zadowalającą, a zanieczyszczenie powietrza stanowi niewielkie ryzyko lub jego brak.
51 -100 Średnia 50-100: Średnia - Jakość powietrza jest dopuszczalna; jednak niektóre zanieczyszczenia mogą być umiarkowanie szkodliwe dla bardzo małej liczby osób, które są niezwykle wrażliwe na zanieczyszczenie powietrza.
101-150 Niezdrowa dla osób wrażliwych 100-150: Niezdrowe dla wrażliwych osób - u osób wrażliwych mogą wystąpić negatywne skutki dla zdrowia. Większość populacji może nie odczuwać negatywnych objawów.
151-200 Niezdrowa 150-200: Niezdrowe - Każdy może zacząć doświadczać negatywnych skutków zdrowotnych; U osób wrażliwych mogą wystąpić poważniejsze skutki zdrowotne.
201-300 Bardzo niezdrowa 200-300: Bardzo niezdrowe - Ostrzeżenie zdrowotne, poziom alarmowy. Bardzo prawdopodobny negatywny wpływ na całą populację.
300+ Zagrożenie dla życia 300 : Niebezpieczny - Alarm Zdrowotny: każdy może doświadczyć poważniejszych skutków zdrowotnych.
