Dust Detector
Dust Detector

This product was designed for wind tunnel applications to accurately measure the amount of dust or dirt which might blow across a surface.


Comprised of an infrared transmitter and receiver, this product can measure dust density over a 80dB scale (ratio of 1-to-100e6). The infrared transmitter LED can be either pulsed or on continuously and is controlled by circuitry housed in an enclosure shown in the bottom of the above photo. The receiver is based on a highly sensitive and large aperture infrared photodiode paired with a low noise logarithmic amplifier. The vertical tube in the assembly dispenses a known amount of "dust" and the electronic system measures the "down-wind" dust intensity.
