Digital plant canopy imager

<br />

Its digital platform enables you to simultaneously capture wide-angle plant canopy images and estimate Leaf Area Index (LAI) and Photosynthetically Active Radiation (PAR) levels from a single canopy scan.

No more taking multiple scans above and below the canopy…leave your tree-climbing equipment at home.

One measurement provides a full complement of data, unlike systems which require the user take multiple measurements and attach various masking devices to obtain meaningful data.

  • Instant Data: Captures Canopy image and calculates Leaf Area Index (LAI) and Photosynthetic Active Radiation (PAR) levels
  • Onsite Evaluation: Its digital process needs only one scan beneath the canopy, allowing on-site evaluation under any daylight conditions
  • User-Defined: User-selected number of zenith divisions (rings) and azimuthal divisions allows investigation of any canopy sectors desired
  • Lightweight: 0.5 Kg instrument is handheld and simple to use

Lightweight (500 grams) and fast, it revolutionizes data collection for forest management, crop science and environmental research!

  • Single measurement for data collection
  • 150°-wide viewing angle with live high-resolution fish-eye image
  • Collect data under any lighting conditions. It accommodates for changes in ambient light
  • Non-destructive measurement of Leaf Area Index (LAI) and Photosynthetically Active Radiation (PAR)
  • On-site evaluation of solar beam transmission coefficients or gap fractions
  • Calculation of diffuse radiation transmission coefficients (the sky view factor), mean foliage inclination angles, and plant canopy extinction coefficients
  • User-selected number of zenith and azimuthal divisions allows investigation of any canopy sectors desired
  • Sun-path can be easily plotted on the image
  • A fully integrated ceptometer with 24 photodiodes to measure Sunflecks in the range of Photosynthetically Active Radiation
  • Lens: Self leveling PENTAX Lens
