HORIBA announce that its PG-350 Portable Automated Measuring System (P-AMS) is now MCERTs certified according to EN 15267-4

For situations when you can only take measurements in the field, but you want the same precision that you get in the laboratory, HORIBA presents the Portable Automated Measuring System - PG-350 P-AMS.

The HORIBA PG-350 P-AMS offers the same accuracy and reliability as laboratory measurements in a portable and durable unit, that is light and has fast response time. With a shortened warm up time, a high visibility touch screen, high accuracy in measuring crucial components in the field and the durability to facilitate mobile measurement, the HORIBA PG-350 P-AMS is the analyser system of the future.

Part of the highly successful and acclaimed PG-300 series, the PG-350 P-AMS launched in July 2020 and has recently been successfully certified according to MCERTs as fulfilling the requirements of the EN 15267 part 1, 2 and 4 for the periodic measurement of stationary source emissions from stationary sources (QAL1).

The HORIBA PG-350 P-AMS system consists of a probe, a heated line, a gas sampling system (PSS-5H) and the PG-350EU as the gas analyser. When all items are used together, the complete system satisfies the requirements EN 12567-4.

Building on the original robust PG-300 design, the whole system is IP42 compliant according to EN 60529, affording protection against dust and light rain. It can, therefore, be used in demanding and challenging measuring locations without the need for a separate waterproof cover or bag. All this was achieved without significantly increasing the weight of the components or compromising design and performance.

The Standard Reference Method (SRM) is the European Standard for the periodic monitoring and for the calibration or control of Automatic Measuring Systems (AMS),permanently installed on a stack for regulatory or other purposes. The recognised technology for the SRM method for Oxygen (O2) is paramagnetic (PMA), for Nitrogen Oxides (NOX) is chemiluminescence (CLD) and for carbon monoxide (CO) it is Non-Dispersive Infrared absorption (NDIR). Improvements in the sensitivity of the renowned HORIBA CLD detector technology enabled the realisation of the lowest certified NOx measuring range to date (102.5 mg.m-3 / 50 ppm) for portable analysers.

The PG-350EU has a highly visible and easy to operate LCD colour touch screen that make on-site measurements easy and simple. Data is readily saved on a SD™ memory card for easy transfer to a PC or laptop. The unit is equipped with a screen capture function as a standard feature, enabling necessary data to be saved on the spot. An intuitive on-screen guidance function is available, in cases when the operator’s manual is not at hand.
