The SI-121 is an unamplified analog sensor with a voltage output.
The sensor has a 18° half-angle field of view and a response time of 0.6 seconds.
Typical applications include plant canopy temperature measurement for use in plant water status estimation, road surface temperature measurement of determination of icing conditions, and terrestrial surface (soil, vegetation, water, snow) temperature measurement in energy balance studies.
Sensor includes IP68 marine-grade stainless-steel cable connector 30 cm from head to simplify sensor removal and replacement for maintenance and recalibration.

The SI-121 and 18º FOV (Field Of View) sensor provides accurate measurement of the leaf-to air temperature gradient is important for irrigation scheduling and the determination of energy transfer, transpiration rate, and stomatal conductance in both single leaves and plant canopies.
Includes Solar Radiation protector AI-100.
This gradient is often less than 1 oC, which means that leaf temperature should be measured to within 0.1 oC.
To achieve this accuracy, we measure and correct for changes in the sensor body temperature.

Apogee infrared radiometers are the most accurate non-contact temperature sensors available anywhere.
The SI-121 has a 18 degree half angle field of view. The sensor has tinned leads for connecting to a datalogger.
Applications include measuring the temperatures of road surfaces, plant canopies, and soil, snow and water surfaces. Measurement of surface temperature is a crucial component of energy transfer.
Accurate measurement of the leaf-to-air temperature gradient is essential to the determination of transpiration rate and stomatal conductance in both single leaves and plant canopies.
Approximate Sensitivity: 40 μV per C
The AI-100 radiation shield improves the performance of Apogee infrared sensors in applications where there is a significant solar load on the sensor housing.
This shield is included on all new infrared sensors and is offered as an accessory for customers wishing to retro-fit previously purchased infrared sensors.
