The Lighthouse HANDHELD 3016 Airborne Laser Particle Counter sensitivity range is large enough to accurately detect mold spores and still detect particles as small as 0.3 microns.

The most exceptional aspect of the Lighthouse Handheld 3016 particulate monitor is the brain.  Take a versatile handheld particle counter capable of six simultaneous particle size channels, cumulative/ differential counting, temperature/relative humidity with a powerful removable rechargeable lithium-ion battery and run the whole thing from a touch-screen computer.  The interface is so easy, you can pick it up and figure out how to use it in minutes.  Unlike some VCRs, you can easily program more functions than you will ever need.

The hardware is far beyond any other handheld particulate monitors out there.  The interface is large, easy to read and even backlit.  Just tap where it says "zoom" to get a large view of your data while it counts.  The well thought out handle makes it easy to hold in one hand while you take samples.  Like most advanced personal digital devices, it runs on a removable, rechargeable battery or regular AC.  Connect to your PC, printer or other equipment with a standard RJ-45 cable.

Product Review...
by James Gause, Industrial Designer

The Lighthouse Handheld model number 3016 portable airborne particle counter like the other handheld systems offered by Lighthouse has the exact same interface as the portable SOLAIR monitors.  The interface is as advanced as a laser particle counter should be, yet as easy to use as a toy.  Lighthouse has taken these products to a whole new level never seen by competitive air monitors by combining airborne monitoring technology with video game technology.  When combining the two products, they have also taken a fresh look at the hardware. 

The Handheld line of particle counters has borrowed smart concepts and values from today's consumer electronics.  You can pick up any cell phone and immediately figure out how to add a phone number for someone named John Smith.  With the particle counter, you can see the main menu and navigate to where you enter custom names for locations, such as "CLEANHOOD_01". 

To make it easy, the interface is similar to windows you use on any personal computer.  With a digital camera, you can walk around using the battery for hours.  Then switch out a fresh battery or plug it in to charge.  The same is true for the Handheld particle counters.  The lithium ion battery is just like a camera battery.  When it runs out, grab a fresh battery from the charger, or plug the unit into the wall.  Also, like a camera, take as many samples as you like up to 3000 and download them at your leisure.  One step better than a camera is the cord to connect to your PC.  With cameras, they use that unique little USB wire adapter that you better not loose.  The Lighthouse Handheld counters use a standard serial port and come with a serial to USB adaptor cord. 

Like any computer peripheral, load the software driver onto any Windows machine, and you are good to go.  For more advanced facility management systems, there is a standard RJ-45 port that uses regular network cable.  The overall fit and finish of the handheld series is very well done.  They feel solid and look very impressive.
