Device Classification
           
   Your choices are...         
   Sensor       Device is a sensor/transducer. Its output is meant for processor, controller or data acquisition system. No display or user interface. 
   Sensor System       Device is an instrument, it has display and/or user interfaces. It can be a self-contained unit. 
   Search Logic:      All products with ANY of the selected attributes will be returned as matches. Leaving all boxes unchecked will not limit the search criteria for this question; products with all attribute options will be returned as matches.
   Measurement Output       
   Your choices are...         
   Extinction or Extinction Coefficient       The attenuation of light in its passage through an aerosol due to (light) scattering and absorption. 
   Percent Opacity       Percent opacity is a measure (usually in percent) of light extinction, defined as one minus the transmittance of an aerosol cloud. This is used mainly to assess the obscuration by smoke plumes. 
   Percent Transmission       Percent transmission is the ratio of the detected irradiance to the source irradiance for a beam passing through an attenuating medium. The relationship between transmission and opacity follows: % Transmission (light through the smoke) + % Opacity (light blocked by the smoke) = 100% 
   Optical Density       Optical density is the logarithm (base 10) of the reciprocal of the transmittance. 
   Soot Number       Soot number is also referred to as the smoke spot number. 
   Dust Density       Dust density is the concentration of dust in the sample volume. 
   Other       Other unlisted, specialized, or proprietary configuration. 
   Search Logic:      All products with ANY of the selected attributes will be returned as matches. Leaving all boxes unchecked will not limit the search criteria for this question; products with all attribute options will be returned as matches.

Measurement Technique
   Technology Type       
   Your choices are...         
   Transmissometry       In transmissometry, light is absorbed and scattered as it passes through a mixture of gas and particles. It compares the intensity of the emitted light with the received light. Transmissometry is the optical technique of measuring the attenuation of a light beam passing through a medium. 
   Scattered Light Principle       Scattered light principle says that a light beam emits infrared light, which is scattered by particles in the gas. This technology is used to detect very low concentrations. Scattered light principle is the deflection of light impinging on a particle, due to the combined effects of refraction, reflection and diffraction. 
   Other       Other unlisted, specialized, or proprietary configuration. 
   Search Logic:      All products with ANY of the selected attributes will be returned as matches. Leaving all boxes unchecked will not limit the search criteria for this question; products with all attribute options will be returned as matches.
   Transmissometer Type       
   Your choices are...         
   Double Pass Extinction       In the double pass design, the light source and detector are on the same side of the stack in a unit called a transceiver. A special reflector called a retro-reflector is installed where the photocell would be in a single pass unit. The purpose of this reflector is to send the light back along the same path it came across the stack. A half silvered mirror is placed in the light path. It reflects half of the returning light from the retro-reflector onto the detector. Since the light traverses the smoke two times, the unit is called a double pass system. 
   Single Pass Extinction       Single pass extinction consists of a light source and photocell in a tube or attached to opposite sides of a smoke stack. The photocell is covered with a filter that makes its response similar to the spectral response of the human eye.

Performance Characteristics
   Detector Range       Detector range is the distance between the transmitter and receiver or the horizontal distance within which the monitor must function. 
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the limits in a "From - To" range; when both are specified, matching products will cover entire range. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.
   Accuracy       Accuracy is expressed as a percentage of the full-scale output. 
   Search Logic:      All matching products will have a value less than or equal to the specified value.
   Maximum Response Time       Maximum time between actuation of the sensing function and the output signal. 
   Search Logic:      All matching products will have a value less than or equal to the specified value.
   Input Power       
   Your choices are...         
   DC Power       The unit requires DC power input. 
   AC Power       The unit requires AC power input. 
   Search Logic:      All products with ANY of the selected attributes will be returned as matches. Leaving all boxes unchecked will not limit the search criteria for this question; products with all attribute options will be returned as matches.

Output
   Electrical Output       
   Your choices are...         
   Analog Voltage       Any analog voltage output. Output voltage is a simple (usually linear) function of the measurement. 
   Analog Current       Analog current is often called a transmitter. A current is imposed on the output circuit proportional to the measurement. Feedback is used to provide the appropriate current regardless of line noise, impedance, etc. Analog current is useful when sending signals over long distances. 
   Frequency or Modulated Frequency Output       Frequency or modulated frequency output (Ex. sine wave, pulse train, AM, FM) 
   Switch / Alarm         
   Search Logic:      All products with ANY of the selected attributes will be returned as matches. Leaving all boxes unchecked will not limit the search criteria for this question; products with all attribute options will be returned as matches.
