Dataset associated with "Effects of aerosol type and simulated aging on performance of low-cost PM sensors"
Time-averaged particle size distribution data measured using an Scanning Mobility Particle Sizer (1.272Mb)
Time-averaged particle size distribution data measured using an Aerodynamic Particle Sizer (543.7Kb)
Real-time particle size distribution data measured using an Aerodynamic Particle Sizer during a simulated aging experiment (305.5Kb)
Particulate matter concentrations measured using a Tapered Element Oscillating Microbalance (291.2Kb)
Studies that characterize the performance of low-cost particulate matter (PM) sensors are needed to help practitioners understand the accuracy and precision of the mass and number concentrations reported by different models. We evaluated Plantower PMS5003, Sensirion SPS30, and Amphenol SM-UART-04L PM sensors in the laboratory by exposing them to: (1) four different polydisperse aerosols (ammonium sulfate, Arizona road dust, NIST Urban PM, and wood smoke) at concentrations ranging from 10 to 1000 μg m-3, (2) hygroscopic and hydrophobic aerosols (ammonium sulfate and oil) in an environment with ...
