MI-220: Narrow Field of View Infrared Radiometer with Handheld Meter

$798.00

The MI-220 has a hand-held meter, attached via cable, that displays and stores sensor measurements. 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.

The meter has a sample and log mode, and will record an average daily value. Sample mode will record up to 99 manual measurements. Log mode will power the meter on/off to make a measurement every 30 seconds. Every 30 minutes the meter will average the sixty 30 second measurements and record the averaged value to memory. The meter can store up to 99 averages, once full it will start to overwrite the oldest measurement with new ones. An average daily value will be recorded from the 48 averaged measurements (making a 24 hr period). Sample and log measurements can be reviewed on the LCD display or by downloading the data to a computer, however, the average daily value can only be viewed by downloading the data to a computer. Downloading data to a computer requires the AC-100 communication cable (a standard USB cable will not work) and ApogeeAMS software. Comes with a free protective carrying case.
