Portable Photoionization Detector (PID)

The Ambi-VOC total volatile organic compound (TVOC) detector is the easiest way to monitor and record PID detectable TVOCs using any PC with a Windows operating system.

Using the award-winning piD-TECH plus photoionization detector (PID) makes the Ambi-VOC the most reliable, accurate, and inexpensive portable TVOC detector on the market.

Designed for ease of use whether you are an air quality consultant, safety engineer, maintenance manager, or just concerned about the TVOCs in your indoor environment.

The USB compatible Ambi-VOC can operate while connected to a PC, or it can remotely store up to 36,000 sample readings with the detector’s internal memory using the optional rechargeable power supply. Alarm levels are programmable with LED and/or audible notification. The Ambi-VOC is also compatible with numerous USB accessory options.
