RS PRO RS-9880 4 in 1 Particle Counter

Introducing the RS PRO RS-9880 4 in 1 Particle Counter that measures airborne particulates with state-of-the-art technology. This unique device combines a particle counter, a formaldehyde (HCHO) and CO2 gas detector, as well as the ability to measure air temperature, relative humidity, wet and dry dew point and most surface temperatures, making this a real all in one tool for air quality measurement and monitoring. This air quality meter unit from RS PRO offers real-time measurement with the ability to record in pictures or videos for further investigation at a later stage if required. This is a great all in one device that can be used across a wide range of applications for fast, easy and accurate readings to ensure air quality standards are monitored and maintained.

Features and Benefits:

  • This hand-held RS PRO air quality meter unit can measure and display 6 channels of particle sizes (down to 0.3 μm), Air Temperature, Humidity, Dew Point and Wet Bulb

  • It offers 2.8" TFT Colour LCD display for easy viewing of real-time measurement and results

  • Videos and images can be captured and stored onto the internal 74 MB memory or a removable micro-SD card (not included with the unit)

  • This unit has built-in data logging capabilities and can store 5000 records (date, time, counts, relative humidity, temperatures, sample volumes, alarms, location labels) and 20 minutes of video

  • Selectable sample time, count data, and Programmable delay

  • Max, Min, DIF, AVG record, Date/time set up controls

  • Auto Power Off to save battery when not in use

  • Tripod mount for continuous recording

  • Mini USB port connection for extra connectivity options

  • The unit can offer display information in five languages (English, German, French, Chinese and Spanish)


Generally, air quality monitors locate and monitor a variety of gases, dust, fumes and particles that could be dangerous and harmful to the breathable air quality for humans. Some have built in gas detectors that locate and identify combustible and explosive gas leaks from petrol or gasoline, methane, butane, sewer gas, and other flammable gases that could cause serious harm to the surrounding environment and the people within that environment. Air quality meters work in a similar way to measure and monitor the air quality to ensure that it is safe enough and acceptable enough to work or live in. Often, air quality meters can be used in environments like :

  • Oil production

  • Smelting

  • Chemical

  • Municipal

  • Sewage treatment

  • Electricity

  • Coal gas

  • Mining

  • Tunnel construction

  • Fire

  • Storage

  • Pharmaceutical

  • Offices

What is a particle counter?

A particle counter is used to measure particles that have been scattered in the air, like dust, smoke and more. Particles like this can come from vehicle exhausts, power plant emissions, garbage and furnace incineration, and much more. Any particles like this can negatively affect the human body, both in the short term and long term, which means a particle counter can be used to measure and monitor such particles, even if they are smaller than 2.5μm.

How long does a particle counter last?

A particle counter is exposed to particulate matter every time it gets used. It is recommended, therefore, to use the particle counter 5 or fewer times a day to ensure that the service life of the unit is increased for as long as possible. An average of 5 years' use can be expected from this unit if it is kept clean and exposure to particulate matter is kept in line with the above suggestion.


If used in a foggy area, the unit may read mist as dust/particulates
