3010-GWK1 Gas Exchange Chamber WALZ
The Gas-Exchange Chamber 3010-GWK1 is designed to investigate medium-sized samples like small branches, big leaves, or fruits under well-defined climate controlled conditions. To provide this, the 3010-GWK1 chamber has a highly efficient temperature control, a transversal fan for fast ventilation, and pneumatic connectors for air-supply.
Internally there are sensors to accurately monitor temperature at three sites, air humidity, and PAR (photosynthetically active radiation). Externally the chamber has additional sensors for temperature and PAR.
The LED-Panel RGBW-L084 provides illumination for the Gas-Exchange Chamber 3010-GWK1. It has a densely packed array of high-power color-LEDs for uniform light distribution. Individual adjustable colors Red, Green, Blue and White exhibit together a maximum output of 2000 μmol s-1 m-2 or better.
The 3010-GWK1 chamber is equipped with four temperature sensors: Three Pt100-type sensors measuring temperature of inside air, near the cooling elements and externally. The fourth temperature sensor is a thermocouple for leaf temperature measurements..
Temperature Control Modes
Temperature control can be switched between three modes: Constant temperature of chamber air, constant leaf temperature, or temperature variation parallel to ambient temperature with an adjustable offset. Temperature profiles can be realized with user-programs. Due to the highly efficient Peltier technology, the cuvette temperature can be regulated fast and accurately.
The 3010-GWK1 chamber has two sensors for photosynthetic active radiation (PAR): A cosine corrected sensor (MQS/B-GWK1) measures ambient PAR at sample level outside the chamber, and a special miniaturized sensor measuring PAR inside the chamber.
A maintenance-free sensor measuring the relative humidity with an accuracy ±1.5% r.h. is located inside the gas-exchange chamber.
The gas-exchange chamber features a transversal fan for effective ventilation. Its speed is adjustable in 10 steps.
The 3010-GKWK1 chamber can be controlled by the GFS-3000 or by a laptop using an optional interface. In both configurations, the 3010-GKWK1 chamber requires its own power supply.
