The Apogee SQ-500 Full Spectrum Quantum Sensor is a stand-alone sensor which can be connected to the new microCache Bluetooth Logger using the built in quick connector, or it can be wired to data collection systems using the included extension cable. 

This unit differs from our Smart USB PAR sensors. It uses the new blue quantum sensor found on the MQ-500 and SQ-520. 

The unit is a self-powered analog full-spectrum quantum sensor with a 0 to 40 mV output. The sensor incorporates a blue-enhanced silicon photodiode and custom optical filters with a rugged, self-cleaning sensor housing design, 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 salt water aquariums where corals are grown. Sensor includes IP68 marine-grade stainless-steel cable connector 30 cm from head to simplify sensor removal and replacement for maintenance and recalibration.

The analog version of this sensor (SQ-500) comes with the inline cable connector placed 30 cm from the sensor head for either standard use as a long-cable pigtail sensor, or for use with our microCache Bluetooth Micro Logger by unscrewing the connector, discarding the long section of cable and then screwing the sensor to the mating connector on the microCache.
