BC 1060 & BC 1065 Portable Black Carbon Monitor

The BC 1060 and BC 1065 2-Channel Black Carbon Monitors from Met One Instruments Powered by Acoem measure and report aerosol brown and black carbon concentrations, with user-selectable time resolution down to one minute, at both UV (370 nm) and IR (880 nm) illumination wavelengths. The BC 1060 provides a combination of portability and dual-wavelength illumination, which permits rapid, easy deployment on a broad scale for source apportionment (fossil fuel vs biomass combustion) determination, roadside monitoring, and emergency responder applications. The BC 1065 features the same technology and capabilities, but in a rack-mounted or benchtop configuration.  The BC 1060 and BC 1065 can continuously sample for up to 6 months with a single roll of glass-fiber filter tape.

To simplify the difference between the BC 1060 and BC 1065:

  • BC 1060 is Portable, in its own weatherproof enclosure for rapid deployability with no need for a shelter.
  • BC 1065 is Rack-Mounted, for installation in laboratories or weatherproof enclosures with other equipment.


  • Two Channels: UV 370 nm & IR 880 nm.
  • CCS+ COMET Cloud Compatible.
  • Flow Dilution System for High Concentration Environments.
  • Available in two different configurations
    • BC 1060: Self-contained Weatherproof Enclosure.
    • BC 1065: Rack-mounted or benchtop.
  • 6-Month Operation per Tape Roll Sampling at 2 LPM.
  • BC 1060 is Highly Portable – 35 lbs./16 kg.
