Apogee PQ-610 ePAR meter | 400 - 750nm
This promotional package includes a SQ-610-SS Extended Photosynthetically Active Radiation (ePAR) sensor with a 30 cm cable, a microCache Bluetooth micro-logger, an AA-090 protective Neoprene Case, an extra 2545 microCache battery, and an AM-020 Apogee PVC Sensor Platform.
When paired, these two devices are a powerful tool for monitoring total photon flux intensity with research-grade accuracy for optimal specimen growth.
The new SQ-610 ePAR was created in 2021 to measure the newly defined 400-750 nm ePAR radiation range that emerging research is showing to be photosynthetically active beyond the traditional 400-700 nm range. Many next generation LED fixtures, the sun, and other light sources emit these extended photosynthetic wavelengths, but they have not been measurable by traditional PAR meters until now.
Much of the transformative work to define the ePAR range was conducted by Dr. Shuyang Zhen and Dr. Bruce Bugbee at Utah State University's Crop Physiology Laboratory. The new AT-100 microCache (µCache) micro-logger is a rugged, standalone, battery-powered device that can collect over 400,000 data points and connects your sensor to your iOS or Android device via Bluetooth using our free ApogeeConnect app.
The app allows you to make real-time measurements, set custom datalogging intervals, monitor and graph daily lights integrals, assure photoperiods, download datasets, and more.
Modular - grows with you
Our grow light modules can be joined end to end or hung side by side to cover any sized grow space. Alternatively you can buy our grow light packages designed to maximise yield from the most popular grow tent sizes.
