The Sensor measures: PAR Light
Output Signal: mV
Cable Length: 5 meters
Power Supply: Does not require
Sensor for use in: Outdoor & Underwater

50 cm bar sensor with 6 in-line PAR Light Sensors (400-700 nm) with calibration for sunlight.

The sensor housing design features an integrated bubble level and is fully potted making the sensor weatherproof. Typical applications include PPFD (Photosynthetic Photon Flux Density) measurement over plant canopies in outdoor environments, greenhouses, and growth chambers, and reflected or under-canopy (transmitted) PPFD measurements in the same environments. Quantum sensors are also used to measure PAR/PPFD in aquatic environments, including salt water aquariums where corals are grown. Sensor includes IP68 marine-grade stainless-steel cable connector 30 cm from head to simplify sensor removal and replacement for maintenance and recalibration.
