PPDS (aka; Philips) announced the launch of “Air Quality Sensor,” an air quality monitoring solution designed to help schools and businesses (including corporate, retail and hospitality) create healthier and more productive working and learning environments, using Philips professional TVs, interactive displays and digital signage solutions. Part of PPDS’ new “Total Solutions” strategy, the PPDS Air Quality Sensor extends the role and benefits of its digital displays, bringing extensive health and economic benefits.
Here’s a video of how it works:
Connected and powered by a single USB cable and compatible with PPDS’ latest Philips Professional TVs, digital signage and interactive displays – including MediaSuite (hospitality), T-Line (education), C-Line (corporate), B-Line (food and beverage / corporate) and Q-Line (universal) – the PPDS Air Quality Sensor plug-and-play solution features four advanced sensors, which monitor air quality 24/7. The sensors are:
- Temperature: Influences virus infection rate and has an impact on performance in the classroom or workplace
- Humidity: Virus particles can remain highly infectious in humidity levels below 30% and above 55%
- Carbon dioxide: CO2 is an excellent indicator of indoor air quality and proper ventilation of a workspace or classroom
- Particulate matter: Higher levels of particle pollution can lead to greater risks of infections, not only COVID-19, but other viral illnesses
Live data, whether for one PPDS Air Quality Sensor in a single room or building or installations across multiple sites, is analyzed, translated and displayed in real-time via an easily digestible dashboard and app. The app also has an indefinite archive of historical data available for extensive reporting and data analytics.
Whenever air quality is deemed to have fallen below a safe standard automatic alerts will be sounded, sent and displayed. The app will even make tailored recommendations on improving the air quality based on its sensor readings, whether that’s something as simple as opening doors and windows, switching on air purifiers (if available), adjusting room temperatures or even requesting that staff temporarily relocate to other areas of the building or from home.
Small in size, PPDS Air Quality Sensor can be easily and neatly installed or attached to Philips professional displays in any environment, using a specially designed bracket and assembly kit supplied in the box.
