MW700-WP Standard Portable Lux Meter with Waterproof Probe by Milwaukee

MW700 is a portable Lux meter designed to perform light measurements. MW700 with Faster Micro Processor, has a smaller, ergonomic and lighter case design. Other features include 100% larger and easier to read LCD Display and long battery life.

These handy and ergonomically designed portable meters are ideal for anyone working on a low budget and still requires fast and reliable measurements. These portable meters are suitable for a wide range of applications, such as Educational, Agriculture and Horticulture, as well as water and environmental analysis.

Both models are supplied with a light sensor connected to the meter that measures from 0 to 50000 Lux.

Average indoor lighting ranges from 100 to 1000 Lux and average outdoor sun lights about 50000 Lux. Lux is a unit that indicates the density of light that falls on a surface.

The light is necessary for the development of the plants. In fact, it is necessary a sufficient contribution of light in order to favor the photosynthesis and the closing of the plants.

The supplement of light by means of lamps electrical workers is the method simpler and economic in order to bring the necessary light to the plants.

The human eye is sensitive only to blue, green, and red light, so in calculating the Lux falling on an object, only the light that the human eye sees is counted. When only infrared light falls on an object, the Lux is counted as zero since our eyes see nothing. Mathematically, a spectral weighting function becomes convolved with the actual illumination spectrum to calculate Lux exactly.

This is the formal definition of Lux and it makes Lux an unusual unit of measure.
