Apogee Std Quantum (PAR) Sensors & Meters


SQ-xxx & MQ-xxx

This is a family of economically priced quantum sensors and meters calibrated for either sunlight or electric light, with self powered or amplified voltage output options. Line sensors are also available that incorporate a number of sensors mounted in a single bar and provide a spatial average over the sensing area.

Features:

Specify calibration for sunlight or electric light. This basic quantum light sensor with cosine-corrected head has a domed diffusion disk and head for improved self-cleaning characteristics and long-term stability. Can be mounted to the leveling plate with internal 10 x 32 threaded insert. This sensor approximates the radiation between 400 and 700 nanometers, which are the most important wavelengths for plant growth.

  • Designed for continuous outdoor use. Can be submerged underwater.
  • Range: 0 to 4000 µmol m-2 s-1 (full sunlight: 2000 µmol m-2 s-1 )
  • Materials: Anodized aluminum with acrylic lens
  • Dimensions: 2.4 cm diameter, 2.75 cm high
  • Cable: 3 meters of shielded cable

Accessories

Leveling Bases

The AL-100 is required for sensors on cable.

The AL-210 is used for mounting meters with integral sensor.

Carry Case The AA-100 carry case is an optional accessory for protecting meters in the field AA-100 Front
Mounting Brackets

The AM-110 fits the AL-100 leveling base and can be mounted directly to a mast or pipe with an outer diameter of 33-53 mm.

The AM-001 is designed to fit to the back of a meter for mounting a sensor on cable.

Line Quantum Sensors - SQ-3xx

Apogee Line Quantum Sensors provide a spatial average of quantum light over the sensing area. There are three standard units from which to choose: 3 sensors mounted in a 50 cm bar, 6 sensors mounted in a 50 cm bar and 10 sensors mounted in a 70 cm bar. These can also be selected with either sunlight or electric light calibration, or with a meter.
