Particles Plus has adopted Superior Sensor Technology's differential pressure sensor technology in their next-generation air quality monitoring instruments for cleanrooms and OEM applications.

Superior Sensor has been chosen based on the company's feature-rich, application-specific, NimbleSense architecture, which improves the accuracy and performance of devices that measure air quality and reduces the design and production time of manufacturing new equipment.

Particles Plus is a specialist in particle counter and air quality monitoring instruments for both OEMs and direct customers. The company engineers and manufacturers its own display, vacuum pump, battery, sensor and counting technology from the ground up. By adding intelligence to each of its modules, the company's resulting products offer superior performance and extended features while driving down overall cost of ownership.

The NimbleSense architecture is an advanced system-in-a-sensor solution that offers customers a proven set of building blocks to easily design custom differential pressure sensor subsystems specific to their product applications. Particles Plus took advantage of NimbleSense to create a custom differential pressure sensor that incorporates unique features specific to their applications.

These features include the NimbleSense Multi-Range technology, closed-loop control and advanced digital filtering.

Multi-Range technology supports up to eight factory-calibrated sensor ranges with no degradation to error band, accuracy or stability on each range, enabling Particles Plus to use one sensor design across a range of applications with different pressure requirements.

Closed-loop control feature reduces loop delays in the electronic circuit by up to 100 times, which improves the accuracy and responsiveness of air quality monitoring instruments.

Advanced digital filter feature removes sensor induced mechanical noise, which greatly improves the signal to noise ratio in sensor output, resulting in maximised performance of products.

Brian Gannon, Business Development Manager, Particles Plus, said: "By integrating their sensor into our custom pressure sensor solution, we improve the temperature performance, provide more stable pressure readings, support a broader range of pressure values, and reduce additional design components, all resulting in an overall increase in performance and a reduction in design and manufacturing costs."
