2. General Description
Handheld Odor Meter is the most popular simplified tool for odor analysis, which enables to indicate the relative
strength and odor classification numerically by comparing odor gases and purified air.
The reading shown on display is calculated based on our original principle.
By using data filing software, you can transfer measuring data to PC in easy steps.
Odor Strength
Simply turn on the device and start measuring.
Real-time relative odor strength level can be measured continuously.
Odor Classification
A pair of semiconductor gas sensors provides odor classification.
Peak-hold Function
Maximum strength level can be retained.
Memory Sampling Measurement Mode
Up to 511 measuring data can be saved upon selecting sampling rate: 1, 2, 5, 10, 20, 60, 120, or 300 seconds.
Transferring measuring data to PC
By using data filing software, it can transfer measuring data automatically from the device to PC during
measurement.
Or, it also can transfer saved measuring data from the device to PC and draw illustrated graph automatically.

3. Measurement
3-1 Real-time Sampling Mode
3-1-1 Measurement Preparation
1. Place filter to Suction Nozzle.
2. Attach Suction Nozzle to the device before measurement.
3. Use ‘AA’ alkaline batteries or AC Adaptor.
Use AC adaptor for longer measurement.
or
4. Turn on the device at clean ambient.
It takes about two minutes for the device initializing and start measuring.
At the point when initializing is done, the device sets the point as ‘Zero’ point.
To get the zero point stable, initializing at clean ambient is recommended.
Air Purifying Unit is used to set ‘Zero’ point forcibly. (Go to 3-5)
3-1-2 Measurement
1. Turn on the device and wait for about two minutes until ‘Ready’ stops blinking and initializing is done.
2. Start measuring.
3. Use OMX-SRM Data Fling Software if necessary.
3-1-3 Finish Measurement
Turn off the devise when Odor Strength Level shows close to ‘0’.

until Calendar and Sampling Rate on LCD display starts blinking.
2. Select Sampling Rate by pressing.
3. Press
to finish selecting Sampling Rate.
4. Press
(one time) and
(twice) to finish Memory Sampling measurement
and save measuring data.
3-2-3 No Memory Space
Memory overflow occurs when the internal memory is full.
If there is no space remained, Calendar on LCD display starts
blinking, and Data No. becomes ‘0’.
To delete saved memory in the device, press
and
at the same time while the device is off and
turn on the device while the two buttons are held.
*Saved memory in the device will not be deleted automatically when it is transferred to PC.

3-3 Peak-hold Function
Press
for over three seconds during Real-time Sampling.
By this function, the highest value of Odor Strength level and Odor Classification value would be keeping
displayed until the values are exceeded other highest values.
Press
for over three seconds again to cancel the function.
*This function will not be shown on the saved data.
3-4 Zero-point Function
After the two-minute initializing, the device will display Odor Strength level and Odor Classification value ‘0’
regardless of the measurement environment.
If you would like to set measuring values to ‘0’ forcibly or measure values more accurate, connect Air Purifying
Unit as shown in below.
1. Press
until Calendar on LCD display starts blinking.
2. Press
to proceed, or press
to cancel.
*If you proceed Zero-point Function at where the air is polluted, Odor Strength level shows ‘0’ and Odor
Classification value shows ‘--‘ at clean air environment.
*Zero-pint function cannot be performed in memory sampling mode.
