What is the control terminal?
The AIRVIA Medical AERO 100 and PRO 150 air purifiers have a portable control terminal that lets you check the air quality in any room at a glance.
It is equipped with the latest generation sensors allowing it to monitor the air quality in real time. It also allows you to control your purifier remotely through a bluetooth connection.
What does the control terminal display?
The large number on the left side of the terminal corresponds to the fine particle rate PM2.5, measured in micrograms per cubic meter (μg/m3). PM stands for "Particulate Matter" and corresponds to fine particle pollution: a mixture of particle solids and liquid droplets present in the air. Some particles are large enough to be visible to the naked eye, such as dust or smoke. But many particles are too small to be seen with the naked eye. PM2.5 corresponds to inhalable fine particles, with a diameter of 2.5 micrometers or more. That’s 30 times smaller than a human hair!
The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends that the level of PM2.5 does not exceed an average of 10 μg/m3 or 25 μg/m3 over 24 hours.
Note: Colors are not displayed on the terminal for PM2.5, only on the main unit air quality indicator bar when the control terminal is turned on. When the terminal is turned off, the indicator bar on the unit will also be turned off because the pollution data comes from the terminal itself (as this is where the sensors are located).
The small coloured number in the center of the terminal screen corresponds to the chemical pollution levels (measured in mg/m3). Formaldehyde is the most common form of chemical indoor air pollution. New furniture, clothing, renovation materials, paints, etc. continuously release formaldehyde into indoor air over a long period of time.
The WHO has established a healthy exposure level of 0.10 mg/m3 (0.08 ppm) for any 30 minute period.
How does it work?
The digital terminal is equipped with 7 buttons to help you easily manage your air purifier.
- ON/OFF button
Turn the purifier on or off.
- Negative ion function
Activates the negative ions function in order to fight against particulate pollution.
There are 5 speeds in total which allow greater efficiency depending on the level of pollution in the room.
- Night Mode
Night mode allows the purifier to be quieter and activates dim lights.
- Automatic Mode
Allows the purifier to automatically adjust its speed according to the level of fine particle pollution (PM2.5).
- UV function
Activates the UV function to eliminate all germs and microorganisms.
Allows you to schedule the purifier to run between 1 and 10 hours.
How to charge the control terminal?
Make sure that the control terminal is fully charged before using it for the first time. The charging indicator lights up red when the terminal is charging. It is located at the top right of the terminal.
There is also a charge indicator present at the top right of the screen to show you the exact battery level. The battery life is 16 hours for a 5 hour charge.
How are the purifier and the control terminal linked?
This is through a bluetooth connection.
The pairing between the main unit and the control terminal has been carried out at the factory. If for any reason you need to pair your device with your terminal again, please follow the instructions in the manual.
The advantages of the control terminal:
The automatic mode of the AIRVIA Medical purifier is a real advantage. Once the automatic mode is engaged, you have nothing more to do. Thanks to the sensors in the control terminal, it will take care of choosing the appropriate speed according to the level of PM2.5 particles in your room. All you have to do is take a quick glance at the terminal to check the air quality.
Plus, the fact that the sensors are built directly into the terminal, not the purifier itself, allows you to check the air in any room in your home without having to move the purifier.
The other advantage of having an independent control terminal is that the pollution data will be much more accurate, compared to sensors built into the air purifier itself, as can be the case in many other models on the market. Logically, the air around the air purifier tends to be cleaner than in the rest of the room. This is the advantage of having a terminal that can be placed a few meters from the air purifier.
