An optico-electronic dust meter that functions on the basis of the method of fluctuations is proposed. The error of continuous variation of the concentration of dust can be substantially reduced because of the design of the device, and the average size of the dust particles in the particular medium determined. The occurrence of occupational diseases may be predicted on the basis of the obtained results.
