The NEO PID is one of the most advanced handheld VOC (Volatile Organic Compound) monitors available for ppb detection. VOCs include a variety of chemicals such as alcohols, fuels, paint thinners, industrial solvents and many others, which can have short and long term adverse health effects. Measuring these compounds is essential for worker protection in industries like oil & gas, fire & hazmat, pharmaceuticals, paints and other releases to the environment and in measuring indoor air quality. The NEO offers several models from the most sensitive 1 ppb to a high range up to 15,000ppm for different applications. Novel designs of the PID and Ultraviolet (UB) lamp reduce interferences due to humidity. Options include real time data monitoring with built in wireless modem using mPower Suite application software.
