PARTAC is a rugged, reliable size-selective tactical particulate profiler designed for use as an NBC agent alarm trigger, an ambient monitor for public and work environments, and as a ground-truth reference for the verification of standoff particulate detectors. It simultaneously monitors airborne particle counts in up to eight user selectable channels.
As an ambient monitor, PARTAC provides the user with a real-time count of particulates. Because of its low noise operation, PARTAC be used in a work environment without disturbing the personnel in the area being monitored. It is also used in areas where work is being contemplated to measure the background levels prior to commencing work.
PARTAC can be programmed to detect the particulate sizes of toxic NBC agents that are proven to be aspirated deeply into the lungs. Measuring the particulate counts in real-time, the PARTAC can be used to trigger alarms and activate additional samplers and instrumentation. Easy, tool-free set up enables the system to be operational in under five minutes, with no orientation or calibration requirements. Its compact size and low power consumption allow it to perform continuously in all environments.
