Quick Features


The Aretas Surface Dust Accumulation monitor detects the levels of accumulated dust in an area. The system continuously monitors the levels of accumulated dust so you can automate workflows and dispatch workers to clean specific areas and know when dust has accumulated. Save time, money and ensure compliance with dust control and mitigation practices. 

Remote Accumulated Surface Dust Monitoring

You can monitor accumulated dust from anywhere in the world. Login to your Edge device or Cloud account wherever you are in the world and see the current levels of accumulated dust anywhere in your building as well as all the historical data. View data from multiple buildings. 


Lumber Mills / Sawmills

Sawmills accumulate explosive, hazardous dust everywhere in the building. Knowing  when, where and what to clean helps save valuable time and money and ensures compliance to best practices.

Grain Elevator / Grain Handling

Grain elevators and other grain handling facilities can produce dry, combustible dust in hard to reach areas. Small, wireless monitors can help detect accumulated dust throughout the facility.

Pharmaceutical Plant

Pharmaceutical Plant explosions from combustible dust hazards are a well-known industrial safety issue. Surface dust monitoring can help prevent large accumulations of potentially hazardous dust. 

Flour Mill / Grain Processing

Flour Mills and Grain processing facilities are another well-known source of hazardous dust control issues. Monitoring hard to reach areas or areas of concern is one way to help improve efficiency and plant safety. 

Food Processing / Sugar

Food Processing with refined sugars, carbohydrates and other combustible dust products or even food manufacturing facilities with dust control issues can benefit from a surface and airborne dust monitoring program. 

Wood Processing

Ensure dust extraction systems and dust control machinery are working correctly and dust is not accumulating in hard to reach areas where it may be disturbed and become a combustion hazard.

Power Options

Software Options

Aretas Sensor Edge is the latest version of the Aretas Sensor Software. You can run Sensor Edge on a local IoT Gateway Device or in the Cloud. Cloud options require WiFI wireless OR an Edge Device (starting at $99 USD)

The workhorse of the Aretas Cloud platform, Aretas Cloud V1 supports all the sensors in the Aretas lineup except thermal, light spectrum and sound spectrum.

You can run IoT Gateway v1 with Aretas Cloud V1 or on its own (using the built-in reporting and data storage).

The Aretas Sensor Grapher is a local charting utility that requires an XBee USB adapter and a PC with Java installed.
