Measuring PAR with the Apogee µCache Logger
The free Apogee Connect app provides useful interfaces for several Apogee Sensors
Quantum Sensors: Measure DLI, Photoperiod, Peak Intensity
Shows real-time readings, graphs, and tables of photosynthetic photon flux density (PPFD), daily light integral (DLI), and photo period. Includes adjustable darkness offsets, an optional immersion correction factor, and custom sample averaging settings.
PAR-FAR and Red - Far-red Sensors: Measure PFD, PAR - FAR, Percent Far-red, Red - Far-red Ratio
App displays individual readings of PAR, Red, and Far-red, depending which sensor is connected. Displays real-time values and graphs and data-tables of recorded Photon Flux Density, PAR/Far-red, Percentage Far Red, the Red - Far-red ratio, Daily Light Integral, and Photoperiod.
Infrared Radiometers: Target Canopy Temperature
Shows instantaneous and logged target temperature, sensor body temperature, and allows input of custom calibration coefficients.
Pyranometers: Global Solar Radiation
Shows instantaneous and daily total of Global shortwave radiation. Can connect to upward and downward pyranometer models for albedometer readings.
More sensors coming soon!
