CairNet Autonomous Networks of Sensor-Based Mini-Stations


Cairnet® device is a real-time standalone and networkable air-monitoring station including up to six Cairsens® microsensors. It is powered by solar panels and offers cellular communication.

Thanks to its integrated manifold allowing a dynamic sampling, the measures are accurate and reliable. Electronic compounds are sealed & protected from moisture and corrosive ambient air. Compact, easily deployable and autonomous thanks to its solar panels and battery, Cairnet® enables you to cost-effectively monitor dust and gas and gives a complete picture of the environmental impact of your operations. It offers unprecedented flexibility in producing accurate and dynamic air quality measurements across a broad range of industries and applications.

  • Indoor and outdoor air quality monitoring: smart cities, road-side & tunnels, schools, airports, ship terminals…
  • Process leak detection and monitoring of fugitive emissions: quarries, storage facilities, mines, manufacturing plants
  • Forecasting of industrial fence line emissions
  • Environmental impact assessments
  • Health and safety: mines, industrial sites, construction
  • Mapping and modelling pollution sources

Features & Benefits

    • Measurement of environmental parameters: temperature, relative humidity and pressure
    • Plug & Play Network: automatic pairing (Cairsens® / Cairnet® / Caircloud®)
    • Dynamic sampling and improved protection against moist and/or corrosive environments
    • Optional: Ultrasonic anemometer to measure wind direction and speed. Autonomous
      thanks to its integrated solar panel and battery
    • Automated data saving (micro SD card) and push : no consequence in case of lost
      communication service
    • Communication frequency and measured data volume adapted automatically to the
      autonomy of the station
    • Very high sensitivity to capture low level gas and particulate concentrations
    • Modular, easy to use and move on-site: no cables
    • Cairnet® requires only annual maintenance: when sensors should be renewed
    • Operating cost savings: process adjustment & Improvement of local communication
      (neighbors & authorities)
    • Possibility to set up hybrid AQMS networks (reference stations & mini-stations)

Technical Specifications

  • Solar panel and its battery
  • Wireless communication module
  • Weather protection enclosure including up to 6 Cairsens miniature sensors, each measuring one or two pollutants. The sensors are to be selected from the list, function of your specific requirements.
  • Optional: ultrasonic anemometer. If this option is selected, it replaces a Cairsens® sensor
