PAR / Quantum-Meter

PAR / Quantum Light Meter

PAR- or Quantum meter measures the total amount of light which can be used by plants for photosynthesis (= conversion of light energy to chemical energy).
This handheld quantum meter measures photosynthetically active radiation (PAR) from 400 – 700 nm.

  • Measuring range: 0 – 2000 μmol / s*m2
  • Resolution: 1 μmol / s*m2
  • Accuracy: ± 5%

PAR is more valuable than Lux or Foot-Candles as it measures only the light used by plants for photosynthesis. According to the light source, the calibration is selectable (electric / solar).
The meter comes with manual and guideline values for different plants.
