Why Buy From Grow Tents Depot
  • Advanced Gardening Ally: Welcome the "InSight" MS-100 from Apogee, a compact spectroradiometer expertly developed to thoroughly evaluate various light properties. This device is specifically created for the modern gardener and promptly calculates vital photobiological indices, helping you in augmenting your plant growth.
  • Key Measurements: The device measures Photobiological indices such as PPFD (Photosynthetic Photon Flux Density) and ePPFD (Extended PPFD); YPFD (Yield Photon Flux Density) and TPFD (Total Photon Flux Density); PFD factors including -UV, -Blue, -Green, -Red, -Far Red, and FR F (Far Red Fluence); PPE (Photosynthetic Photon Efficacy) and iPPE (Instantaneous PPE); CFI (Color Fidelity Index) and CRI (Color Rendering Index); CCT (Correlated Color Temperature) and Lux; Relative Flux-Red Ratio; foot candle (fc); ?p (Peak Wavelength) and ?d (Dominant Wavelength); CIE 1931 x & y (Chromaticity coordinates); CIE 1976 u' & v' (Chromaticity coordinates).
  • Versatile and User-friendly: The InSight allows for various use modes. Its quick check mode provides instant measurements and feedback displayed on the device's compact yet detailed screen, showcasing a simple spectral graph. When paired with an iOS or Android device, Apogee's proprietary Insight App lets you examine multiple light metrics, save spectral samples for future reference, and see full-color graphical displays.
  • Comprehensive Insight Software: The InSight comes with Apogee's comprehensive Insight Software for PCs, offering advanced capabilities in spectral analysis and data logging. The device records measurements over time when connected to a computer via USB, hooked up with a compatible datalogger via Modbus RS-485, or when operating on the supplied power supply.
