Monnit Wireless PAR Light Meters provides insight into the performance of the greenhouse and grow lighting systems or even the sunlight for outdoor agricultural operations to the Internet of Things.
Firstly, PAR or Photosynthetically active radiation is the waveband in the light spectrum that plants use for photosynthesis. The PAR light meter monitors the PAR Range (389 to 692 nanometers) from indoor and outdoor light sources including LEDs.
One of the two important light readings you receive from the light meter is PPFD. PPFD is Photosynthetic Photon Flux Density. It is indicated by micromoles per square metre per second. The PPFD reading provides light intensity and the amount of light that is on a square meter of crops per second.
Another reading which assists plant growth is Daily Light Integral (DLI). This indicated the PAR level or PPFD accumulation that falls on a square metre of crops during 24 hours.
Secondly, this sensor model is contained in a weatherproof industrial housing. Install a PAR light meter within 15 minutes and simply plug & play.
By using this product, it will assist commercial growers & greenhouse staff on how to simplify their smart agriculture operations.
