The Wireless Light Sensor features two separate apertures – one for ambient light measurements and one for directional light measurements. The ambient sensor measures illuminance and UV Index, while the spot (directional) aperture measures light level and color intensity. Our software displays the relative intensities of Red, Green, and Blue light, then sums them to determine the level of White light. The light available to drive photosynthesis (PAR) and total light power per area (irradiance) are also available as calculated measurements within PASCO Capstone (version 1.8 or later) and SPARKvue software (version 2.6 or later).
