This Dust Sensor gives a good indication of the air quality in an environment by measuring the dust concentration. The Particulate Matter level (PM level) in the air is measured by counting the Low Pulse Occupancy time (LPO time) in a given time unit. LPO time is proportional to PM concentration. This sensor can provide reliable data for air purifier systems; it is responsive to PM of diameter 1μm.
For all Grove users (especially beginners), we provide you guidance PDF documents. Please download and read through Preface - Getting Started and Introduction to Grove before your using of the product.
This sensor uses a counting method to measure dust concentration, not weighing method, and the unit is pcs/L or pcs/0.01cf.
Please pay attention to the warnings listed here.

it seems meanwhile its supported with groove pi with later firmware versions? https://github.com/DexterInd/GrovePi/blob/master/Software/Python/grove_dust_sensor.pyQuestion by: admin on 2018-12-18 02:30:09
Hi there~ The Grove pi is maintained by Dexter ,Please go to the forum.Normally, you will get a quick reply within 24 hours. #### https://forum.dexterindustries.com/c/grovepi ##Answer by: admin on 2018-12-18 02:30:09

Hi~ It means how may dust particles per liter air.Answer by: admin on 2018-12-18 02:30:01
Hello what is the equivalent of 1 pcs equal to in other measure units? And how do we convert pcs/liter to ppm?Question by: admin on 2018-12-18 02:29:31
Hi there~ Unfortunately, there is no equation to translate pcs to ppm. RegardsAnswer by: admin on 2018-12-18 02:29:31
Question by: admin on 2018-12-18 02:29:26
Hi Aldrich~ Unfortunately, this sensor measures the amount of particulate matter, not the weight. So it is nearly impossible to change pcs into grams. RegardsAnswer by: admin on 2018-12-18 02:29:26
