B306 Benchtop Particle Counter

B306 Remote Airborne Particle Counters

0.1 CFM (2.83 LPM)

  • Industry’s highest concentration of 15,000,000 particles/ft³ @ 10% coincidence loss
  • Ideal for use in Cleanrooms, Industrial Health & Safety, and Air Quality applications
  • >10 hours continuous operation on a fully charged battery
  • Industry’s first Sleep Mode and Power Conservation Mode with intelligent battery
  • Unparalleled and most comprehensive internal self-diagnostics of any remote particle counter
  • Internet of Things (JSON) communication allows for network or cloud based data options

The Airy Technology® B306 Remote Particle Counters measure 0.3 to 25.0 μm with a flow rate of 0.1 CFM (2.83 LPM). Easy to configure, these instrument display up to 6 user-selectable size channels as well as temperature and relative humidity. View data or export to Instrument Management Software (IMS). Airy Technology counters can be controlled and monitored remotely via web browser.

The B306 can be used as stand-alone battery operated instruments or they can be easily integrated into a building automation and cleanroom management system via Ethernet, USB or (optional) Wireless 802.11 b/g, RS485, or RS232.

All Airy Technology® counters meet ISO 21501-4 and JIS B9921. The B306 ensures compliance with an on-board pulse height analyzer.
