This promotional package includes both an SQ-640 Quantum Light Pollution sensor with a 30 cm cable and microCache Bluetooth micro-logger at a special introductory price. When paired, these two devices are a powerful tool for monitoring photon flux density (PFD) with research-grade accuracy for optimal specimen growth. Apogee’s new SQ-640 sensor is designed to detect photons from 340-1040 nm that are below the sensitivity level of a typical quantum sensor. Detecting stray photons that disrupt dark periods can be important in researching and preventing morphogenic effects such as hermaphrodism, stem elongation, and poor flowering in certain sensitive plants. These photons can even come from unexpected sources like street lights, signs, and IR security cameras. 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 ApogeeConnect app. The app allows you to make real-time measurements, set custom datalogging intervals, monitor and graph daily lights integrals, asure photoperiods, download datasets, and more.
