Portable – user friendly instrument for canopy analysis. The operation of the instrument is based on a multiparameter sensor with 1m. length, which measures the Photosynthetically Active Radiation (PAR). The instrument is able to operate either autonomously with the use of a portable measuring and logging device or with direct connection to a PC. The instrument measures the incident and the transmitted PAR in canopies.
The instrument includes a second sensor which calculates the ratio between the direct and the diffused incident PAR in crops. The instrument gives immediate calculation and reading of LAI (Leaf Area Index). The portable device is a mini PC and it has a high definition LCD display. The operation of the device is very easy because its software is based on icons and menus (like WINDOWS)
