Kube-Sky-RHT-PM0440 Ambient Air, Temperature & Humidity Quality Sensor
The Kube-Sky-RHT-PM0440 is a wireless transmitter designed for indoor use, capable of monitoring temperature, humidity, and particulate matter ranging from 0.4 to 40 μm in size. Its minimalist design ensures an attractive appearance, making it particularly suitable for office environments.
Utilising LoRa technology, the Kube-Sky-RHT-PM0440 offers extensive radio coverage, enabling communication over long distances. To operate, this model requires an external power source.
While it is primarily intended for use with the Nokeval Sky-radio base station, it also offers the flexibility to integrate into systems equipped with RS485 Modbus RTU compatibility seamlessly.
Wireless Air Quality Transmitter Measurements
The Sky radio antenna operates within the frequency range of 433.3 to 434.5 MHz, with a maximum bandwidth of 300 kHz OBW. It has a maximum transmission power of 10 dBm EIRP, offering an open space range of approximately 5 km under optimal conditions. For indoor use, the range typically falls between 30 to 300 meters.

The device’s dimensions are 95 x 75 x 87 mm (with an additional 1 mm for the wall bracket), and it weighs 270 grams.
What is an Air Quality Sensor?
An air quality sensor is a device designed to measure and monitor the quality of the air in a particular environment. These sensors detect various components and pollutants present in the air, such as particulate matter, gases, and other airborne contaminants.
Common measurements and data collected by air quality sensors include levels of pollutants like carbon dioxide (CO2), carbon monoxide (CO), ozone (O3), sulfur dioxide (SO2), nitrogen dioxide (NO2), volatile organic compounds (VOCs), particulate matter (PM), temperature, humidity, and more.
Air quality sensors are essential tools for assessing and maintaining the health and safety of indoor and outdoor spaces. They are commonly used in homes, offices, industrial facilities, and urban areas to provide real-time information about air pollution and overall air quality. This data helps individuals, businesses, and governments make informed decisions regarding air purification, ventilation, and environmental policies to ensure the well-being of the people and the environment.
