DustComm Pro Software

DustComm Pro software is Windows-based software which is supplied free with SKC Particulate Monitors (HAZ-DUST IV, Split2, EPAM 5000, AIR-AIDE and the optional data logger for HAZ-DUST I). DustComm Pro is both a communications application that enables stored data within the Particulate Monitor to be downloaded to a PC, and a data manipulation tool enabling detailed analysis and reporting of sampled data.

The data plots provided with DustComm Pro enable:

  • Detailed statistical analysis
  • Creation of graphs and charts
  • Mathematical correction of particle characteristics when the aerosol significantly differs from calibration dust
  • The data to be exported to Microsoft Excel for further analysis and reporting

The Full Plot Graph

The graph is fully customisable - the graph can be line or bar, gridlines can be added/removed, the data points can be highlighted with a choice of graphics, colours changed, the graph can be zoomed into between any two points, notes (and pictures) added, the title changed and so on. The graph can also be printed, or exported for use in reports.
