Photosynthetic Light (PAR) Smart Sensor


The Photosynthetic Light (PAR) Smart Sensor is intended to measure light intensity for the frequencies relevant for photosynthesis. This sensor has a measurement range of 0 to 2500 umol/m2/sec over wavelengths from 400 to 700 nm. Enclosed in a anodized aluminum housing with acrylic diffuser and o-ring seal, this model has a 3m cable; a light sensor bracket and light sensor level are recommended.

Also available in a wireless model for use with the HOBOnet Field Monitoring System.

  • Measurement range of 0 to 2500 umol/m2/sec over wavelengths from 400 to 700 nm
  • Plug-n-play smart sensor
  • Compatible with RX, H21, H22, and U30 family loggers
