Particulate Matter includes all small pieces of solid or liquid suspended in the Earth’s atmosphere. Particulates have been deemed a Group 1 carcinogen; therefore, the detection of particulates is of the utmost importance. A particulate matter sensor is one that emits an output signal in response to the presence of particulates above a level deemed the maximum tolerable level.
