The current paper represents the portable system for monitoring of air quality by detecting the concentrations of an ammonia gas based on compact MOS sensor. The presence of the ammonia gas in the outdoor or indoor air is very important for the human health and safety because it may be dangerous in high concentrations. The continuous monitoring of the This portable system is designed to meet the requirements of the health protection not only in the indoor environments but also in the urban, industrial and rural locations by continuous measurement and transmission of the data to the remote server for real-time analysis of the working space air. The paper discusses the calibration and test of the metal-oxide sensors due to the very wide range of the initial sensitive layer resistance and calculation of the ammonia gas concentration in the air.
