The Dust Detector Bricklet is discontinued. We are selling our remaining stock. The Particulate Matter Bricklet is the recommended replacement.
The Dust Detector Bricklet can be used to extend the features of Bricks with the capability to measure dust density. The measured dust density can be read out in µg/m³. With configurable events it is possible to react on changing dust density without polling.
Typical applications are measurements of cigarette smoke, smog, house dust, pollen, etc.
|Current Consumption||120mW (24mA at 5V)|
|Dimensions (W x D x H)||60 x 50 x 20mm (2.36 x 1.97 x 0.79")|
To test a Dust Detector Bricklet you need to have Brick Daemon and Brick Viewer installed. Brick Daemon acts as a proxy between the USB interface of the Bricks and the API bindings. Brick Viewer connects to Brick Daemon. It helps to figure out basic information about the connected Bricks and Bricklets and allows to test them.
Connect the Dust Detector Bricklet to a Brick with a Bricklet Cable.
If you connect the Brick to the PC over USB, you should see a new tab named "Dust Detector Bricklet" in the Brick Viewer after a moment. Select this tab. If everything went as expected you can now see the dust density in µg/m³ and a graph that shows the dust density over time.
After this test you can go on with writing your own application. See the Programming Interface section for the API of the Dust Detector Bricklet and examples in different programming languages.
See Programming Interface for a detailed description.
