Filter Sampler

Model 9401

Features

The Model 9401 sampler allows you to perform time-resolved filter sampling to acquire aerosol samples from UAV and other mobile platforms with remote control capability. The compact size, low weight and minimal power use make it a great solution for applications requiring portability. Electron microscope grids may also be mounted inside the unit to allow TEM or SEM analysis of collected particles. With 8 filter channels, multiple samples can be obtained with your time resolution tailored to the aerosol loading. Deploy the 9401 in conjunction with our other portable instruments so you can target your filter samples to specific events of interest revealed by real-time aerosol data.

  • Eight filters with software actuated sampling
  • Portable, lightweight, low power use
  • Sample flow rate, pressure and temperature measurements
  • Self-contained with on-board software & data storage
  • Field tested on unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs)
  • Sampling controllable by remote user command

Applications and Solutions

  • Mobile platform sampling: UAVs, Balloons, Aircraft, Vehicles
  • Personal exposure monitoring
  • Climate change field studies
  • Air quality monitoring

Software

Integrated software drives each ACCESS module from the inside – the built-in microprocessor and sensors are able to sense, control, and report on instrument performance. A serially-communicated stream of data provides real-time user access to all the fundamental operating parameters and measurement values. An on-board micro-SD card can be used to store data locally.

Add the Base Module option to your ACCESS package to benefit from a graphical user interface (GUI) that allows you to easily interact with the instrument so you can change parameter settings, configure outputs and view measurements on the screen of the PC. Multiple ACCESS modules can be connected via a micro-USB hub to the GUI allowing the system configuration to be easily changed. This feature also allows each of the connected modules to be remotely controlled via a single RS232 connection.The GUI software automatically recognizes which instruments are attached to the Base Module and adjusts accordingly. It is provided to facilitate configuration and monitoring of the ACCESS instruments on the

The GUI software automatically recognizes which instruments are attached to the Base Module and adjusts accordingly. It is provided to facilitate configuration and monitoring of the ACCESS instruments on the ground, but is not required to operate the unit and acquire data. The external GUI software is only available pre-loaded on a ruggedized tablet PC supplied by BRECHTEL.
