Our ergonomically designed and lightweight lighthouse handheld 3016IAQ is the newest, most advanced handheld particle counter on the market, featuring mass concentration mode that approximates density in µg/m3. Providing up to 6 particle size channels of simultaneous counting, lighthouse handheld particle counters can display cumulative and differential particle count data as well as temperature/relative humidity data on the fast and easy to read color touch screen. Lighthouse handheld 3016IAQ can hold up to 3000 records of particle data and the configurable recipe database can store up to 50 recipes for sampling and reports. The handheld 3016IAQ monitors particulate levels accurately and reliably, even in "hard-to-reach" areas where two-handed operation is unsafe.
