The MQ-500 Full Spectrum Quantum Meter is appropriate for Photosynthetic Photon Flux Density (PPFD) measurement over plant canopies, greenhouses, and growth chambers, and reflected or under-canopy (transmitted) PPFD measurements in the same environments. Can also be used in aquariums where corals are grown.
The MQ-500 sensor is attached to a hand-held meter, via cable, that displays and stores measurements. The sensor incorporates a blue-enhanced silicon photodiode and custom optical filters with a rugged, self-cleaning sensor housing design, anodized aluminum body with acrylic diffuser.
