Performing Zero Calibration on the Sidepak

In this video, I demonstrate how to zero calibrate the TSI Sidepak (AM510) aerosol monitor:

  1. Make sure the Sidepak is turned on by pressing the leftmost pink button "Page"
  2. Once the Sidepak is in Survey Mode, press the "Page" button again to reach the MAIN MENU
  3. Use the arrow keys until the "Zero Cal" text appears and then press the "Enter" key, which is the angled arrow on the right side of the control panel
  4. Attach the zero calibration filter to the inlet of the Sidepak
  5. Press the Enter button again
  6. Wait 1 minute until the zeroing procedure is finished
  7. Press the "Page" button to return to Survey Mode
