SQ-215-SS: Amplified 0-5 Volt Sun Calibration Quantum Sensor

$227.00

The SQ-215 is an amplified original quantum sensor with a 0 to 5 V output that has been calibrated for use in sunlight. The sensor features a rugged, self-cleaning sensor housing design. 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 (Photosynthetically Active Radiation)/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.
