Light and Agriculture
Plant Growth Light Measurement, Plant Factory Measurement Tool, Plant Growth Monitoring
Indoor Agriculture has been increasingly gaining interest as a means for plant assisted growth using artificial light. This has ramifications for supplemental food production during winter months, especially in regions with short days and reduced sunlight. This technology also has the commercial potential for ornamental plants as well and even perhaps for growing plants 24 hours / day. UPRtek PAR Meter is designed especially for plant growth application, it is using PAR (photo synthetically active radiation) that plants assisted growth with artificial light, and provides PPFD (Photosynthetic Photo Flux Density) measurement unit to help us to discover the research for plants grow and build up the plant growth system.
PhotosystemsPhotosystems are functional and structural units of protein complexes involved in photosynthesis that together carry out the primary photochemistry of photosynthesis: the absorption of light and the transfer of energy and electrons. Photosystems are found in the thylakoid membranes of plants, algae and cyanobacteria (in plants and algae these are located in the chloroplasts), or in the cytoplasmic membrane of photosynthetic bacteria. There are two kinds of photosystems: II and I, respectively.
Grow Light MeasurementIt seems that the plant growth and light are inseparable, and since the light is so important to the growth of the plant. You cannot just check PPFD (Photon Photon flux density), you also need to know the characteristics of the light through the spectrum, check the LUX of the light, and even process a continuous measurement for a period to monitor the plant growth effectively... and so on. UPRtek PAR Meter can help you to accomplish all of them.
PG100N PAR MeterThe burgeoning indoor horticulture industry has resulted in a booming market for Grow Lights. Whether augmenting sunlight or using it as the main source of light energy, the practice and proper usage of Grow Lights will have a significant impact on the appearance, taste and shape of a plant. And there is only one way to practically ensure the quality and quantity of light over a large indoor farming area and that is to use a light meter. But not all light meters are designed with grow lights in mind. The PG100N is geared specifically for grow lights with both spectral and quantitative measurements allowing growers and researchers a tool for getting their arms around the fickle nature of growing plants with artificial lights.

MK350S Premium is a Handheld Spectrometer with Muli-Functions in itself. It's not only a Spectrometer, but also can be a Quantum PAR Meter, and Oscilloscope. Especially we add the BLH Judgement feature in it which's the latest popular topic and requirement for the Lighting industry. The strong and various functions can make users task quicker and efficiently.
The plant growth's success formula - PPFD (photosynthetic photon flux density) What is PPFD? It means how many photons hit a defined area in one second. PPFD is the unit of measure, defined by μmol/m2/s or micro-moles of photons falling on a square meter per second. Plant has various species and different categories which have different PPFD requirements.Normally, Photosynthetically available Radiation (PAR) wavelength is 400nm - 700nm. The light intensity has valuable effects on the plant due to the different wavelengths.
Advanced MK350S the 1st handheld Spectrometer cross to muti-industrials. It had more than 40 light measurement units which are CCT, LUX, CRI, CIE1976, CIE1931,PPF, CQS, Duv, LambdaP, S/P ratio, TLCI, GAI... No matter for RD lighting designers, lighting manufactory and quality control, interior light designers, horticulture measurement, cinematographer and health prevention...and so on.MK350S is designed to meet the needs of all users.
