Installing Your PurpleAir Sensor

Congratulations PurpleAir sensor owner!

Installation Tips

  • The housing is designed to protect the device from the elements while allowing air to flow freely past the two laser counters.
  • The power supply should be mounted so that it will not be submersed in water or covered by snow.
  • Use a "drip loop" to prevent water running down wires and into electronics.
  • If possible, mount the sensor in a shady spot out of direct sun.
  • If possible, mount the sensor away from vents or other local sources of pollution like BBQ's.
  • Use either cable ties or a screw to mount the sensor and power supply.
  • Connect the power supply to a power outlet and tuck the wires away.
