Philips Professional Display Solutions (PPDS) is excited to announce the launch of ‘Air Quality Sensor’ – a brand new, highly advanced and innovative air quality monitoring solution, designed exclusively to help schools and businesses (including corporate, retail and hospitality) create healthier and more productive working and learning environments, using Philips professional TVs, interactive displays and digital signage solutions.
“With the spread of airborne viruses and other potentially harmful pollutants, monitoring indoor air quality is crucial to the health and safety of classrooms and work environments.” said Chris Colpaert, General Manager at PPDS. “PPDS Air Quality Sensor is a simple and incredibly effective solution that pairs perfectly with our advanced digital signage and professional TV solutions to bring safer and cleaner environments to people, whether they’re inside a classroom, corporate office, hotel room, a retail store, or any active indoor environment. Monitoring and managing air quality has never been more important, and we’ve made this a simple, seamless and affordable process.”
The PPDS Air Quality Sensor extends the role and benefits of its digital displays, bringing extensive health and economic benefits. Small in size, PPDS Air Quality Sensor can be easily and neatly installed/attached to Philips professional displays in any environment, using a specially designed bracket and assembly kit, supplied in the box.
Connected and powered by a single USB-A cable and compatible with PPDS’ latest Philips Professional TVs, digital signage and interactive displays – including MediaSuite (hospitality), T-Line (education), C-Line (corporate), B-Line (food and beverage / corporate), and Q-Line (universal) – the PPDS Air Quality Sensor ‘plug and play’ solution features four advanced sensors, which monitor air quality 24/7.
The four sensors measure room temperature, humidity, carbon dioxide and particulate matter, all of which can have a major impact on people’s health and wellbeing.
- Temperature: Influences virus infection rate and has an impact on performance in the classroom or workplace
- Humidity: Virus particles can remain highly infectious in humidity levels below 30% and above 55%
- Carbon dioxide: CO2 is an excellent indicator of indoor air quality and proper ventilation of a workspace or classroom
- Particulate matter: Higher levels of particle pollution can lead to greater risks of infections, not only COVID-19, but also other viral illnesses
“Like airborne viruses, the quality of air, (unless at very extreme levels) is not visible to the naked eye,” said Martijn van der Woude, Director International Business Development at PPDS. “The statistics and impact on people’s health simply cannot be ignored and businesses, schools, retailers and the hospitality sector have a chance to reset and understand the clear link between poor air quality, absence and performance. It’s never been more important to have healthy, happy and energetic people. The PPDS Air Quality Sensor is just the beginning of this story and we are continuing to develop our air quality solutions around our Philips professional displays.”
