The instrument comprises transmitter and receiver modules mounted on opposite side of the stack using a unique
Ratiometric Dynamic Opacity algorithm to overcome contamination which is catastrophic to the performance of traditional opacity systems. Mains power and a choice of user outputs are wired directly to the receiver avoiding the need for separate remote control units.
The PCME View 580 continuous particulate monitor uses the Dynamic OpacityTM Ratiometric opacity technology principle. This technique monitors the variation in the amount of received light from the light beam transmitted
across the stack. The variation derives from the temporal distribution of particulate which attenuates the light beam. The PCME View 580 calculates the dynamic response (ratio of light variation to light intensity or obscuration).
This method has the added benefit that the measurement is unaffected by lens contamination. The instrument response, which is proportional to dust concentration and can also be calibrated to read in mg/m3 by reference to an Iso-kinetic sample (mass gravimetric technique).
