What it is

A PAR sensor in a waterproof aluminum enclosure with a 1.5m length of cable. The sensor comes pre-calibrated and doesn't require any subsequent recalibration.

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.

It comes with a small tripod and bubble level for easy deployment.

Using it

The documentation on the specification, and setup of the sensor is available.

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.

A python and rust library is available for the Raspberry Pi.
