2B Tech has taken the next step in miniaturization of UV-based ozone monitors by developing the Personal Ozone Monitor or "POM." The basic POM unit has dimensions of 4 × 3 × 1.5 inches and weighs only 0.8 lb / 1.0 lb without / with battery (340 g / 450 g). It has a built in GPS so that ozone measurements may be logged continuously along with geographic location. By folding the optical path in the shape of a "U," it was possible to achieve the same path length in the POM as in the Models 202, 205, and 106-L and thus have similar precision and accuracy (~1.5 ppb).
➢ Personal exposure monitoring for studies of health effects of air pollutants
➢ Health and safety monitoring at industrial sites using ozone
➢ Vertical profiling using balloons, kites, RPVs, and light aircraft where space and weight are highly limited
➢ Long-term monitoring at remote locations where power is highly limited
➢ Urban arrays of ground-based detectors
