What it is
A PAR sensor in a waterproof aluminum enclosure with a 1.5m cable. The sensor comes pre-calibrated and doesn’t require any subsequent calibration.
The base has a 1⁄4” screw hole which can be used to mount the sensor on any standard tripod. It also comes with a small tripod and bubble level.
The device uses the Qwiic Connect System for wiring, it’s an easy-to-use, polarized, push-to-fit connector. No more mistaken connections or soldering header pins.
The Arduino IDE, PlatformIO, and Particle.io library is in the respective library manager. Any Arduino compatible board will work. Any Raspberry Pi 3, 4 or Zero will work as well.
The PAR sensor, accompanying sensor circuit for taking measurements, and a tripod are included.
