The PQS 1 sensor is for accurate measurement of Photosynthetic Active Radiation


PQS 1 PAR Quantum sensor is developed for accurate measurement of Photosynthetic Active Radiation. It offers a response with an excellent match to the ideal PAR response. In addition the optical design of the diffuser offers optimized cosine correction. The instrument is designed for continuous outdoor or indoor installation. Perfect for studies of crop growth in green houses for example.

Both solar radiation and artificial light sources like for example high pressure sodium lamps are common sources of Photosynthetic Active Radiation. PQS 1’s sensitivity has been optimized to provide reliable and accurate measurements regardless of the PAR source. This is important for horticultural studies and plant physiology monitoring.
