SQ-521-SS SDI-12 Digital Output Full-spectrum Quantum Sensor

$478.00

The SQ-521 is a digital sensor with SDI-12 communication protocol. The sensor incorporates a rugged, self-cleaning sensor housing design, anodized aluminum body with acrylic diffuser. Typical applications include PPFD 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.

How is the SQ-500 different from previous Apogee quantum sensors?

The SQ-500 is a full spectrum quantum sensor with a spectral range of 389 to 692 nm ± 5 nm, which can be seen in the graph below. This improved spectral response increases the accuracy of LED measurements.
SQ-500 & SQ-100 Spectral Response
Where is the SQ-500 used?

The SQ-500 is used to measure incoming PPFD measurements in outdoor environments, greenhouses, growth chambers, and aquariums.
