The light is collected from the tip of the probe at right angles to its long axis. Thus the probe can be inserted in short grass sward and collect down-welling light. The electronics are housed in the meter to make a compact hand-held system. The response of this probe can be can be chosen from the standard range of sensors, eg. PAR Quantum response*Direct reading of light levels
