The Apogee MQ-500 quantum meter is the tool of choice for scientists all over the world to accurately measure photosynthetically active radiation from all light sources. It has a hand-held meter, attached 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, and anodized aluminum body with acrylic diffuser.
Typical applications include PPFD measurement over plant canopies in outdoor environments, greenhouses, and growth chambers, and reflected or under-canopy (transmitted) PPFD measurements in the same environments. Quantum sensors are also used to measure PAR/PPFD in aquatic environments, including saltwater aquariums where corals are grown.
The meter has a sample and log mode and will record an integrated daily total in mol m-2 d-1. Sample mode will record up to 99 manual measurements. Log mode will power the meter on/off to make a measurement every 30 seconds. Every 30 minutes the meter will average the sixty 30 second measurements and record the averaged value to memory. The meter can store up to 99 averages, once full it will start to overwrite the oldest measurement with new ones. An integrated daily total will be recorded from the 48 averaged measurements (making a 24 hr period). Sample and log measurements can be reviewed on the LCD display or by downloading the data to a computer, however, the integrated daily total can only be viewed by downloading the data to a computer. Downloading data to acomputer requires theAC-100 communication cable(a standard USB cable will not work) andApogeeAMS software.

I grow orchids, have a reef tank and grow lots of other 🪴. Having a good PAR meter allows me to adjust lighting and plant locations. I plan on using the meter for resting up my reef tank. The meter fits easily in your hand and having the extendable wand attachment gets the detector right where you want to make the measurements.
