personal DataRAM
pDR-1000AN Monitor
Key Features
• Measure airborne particulate
concentration in real-time
• Highest measurement range of any
real-time personal particulate monitor
• Simple zeroing and calibration
• No moving parts, silent operation
• Compact, durable, and self-contained
The Thermo Scientific personal DataRAM
pDR-1000AN Monitor is a passive
sampling, light-scattering nephelometer
that measures real-time mass
concentrations of dust, smoke, mists, and
fumes in industrial as well as other indoor
and outdoor environments.
Nephelometry, a light-scattering
technology, is highly sensitive and
incorporates a pulsed, high output, nearinfrared light emitting diode source, as
well as a silicon detector/hybrid
preamplifier, collimating optics and a
source reference feedback PIN silicon
The pDR-1000AN monitor features a high
measurement range of 0.001 to 400 mg/m3
(auto-ranging), a 400,000-fold span. An
optical feedback and stabilized sensing
system, sets the standard for sensitivity,
long-term stability and reliability.
Simple zeroing, with particle-free air, is
quick using the included zeroing kit.
The internal firmware controls an
automatic calibration check. A gravimetric
calibration can be performed by weighing a
separate filter sample and programming in
the calibration constant to provide the
same reading.
The pDR-1000AN monitor is an ultracompact, durable and self-contained
instrument designed for hand-held or beltworn unattended operation. There are no
moving parts which provides for silent,
dependable operation.
Selectable alarm levels with built-in
audible signal and switched output, a
RS-232 communications port, and a
programmable analog concentration output
are all part of this versatile instrument.
