This is an open-source portable air monitoring breakout - great for those wanting to keep a check on their local environment as part of a project. This breakout can provide the level of suspended particulates with their mass.

The Air Monitoring breakout has a powerful PMSA003 sensor that provides information on suspended particulate matter (PM1.0, PM2.5, PM10) in the air per unit volume via digital output, with an operating voltage of 3.3 V.

The board communicates via UART (serial) with a standby current of ≤200 Microampere (μA). Thanks to the SPI interface, the breakout is compatible with the Raspberry Pi, Beaglebone, Arduino, STM32, PIC, AVR, ARM and more.

We also offer the same sensor in Raspberry Pi HAT format!
