Loggers and Meters

Skye Instruments has been designing and manufacturing instrumentation for environmental monitoring, plant growth and agriculture for over 30 years. For sales and support on all Skye products and to determine which instrument best suits your application, please get in contact with PP Systems to speak to a products specialist.  We look forward to being of assistance.

Did You Know…
that Skye Instruments Ltd. has been designing and manufacturing light sensors since 1983?  Skye has a worldwide reputation for producing sensors to a high technical specification that are robust, durable and reliable. Every sensor is individually calibrated against, and traceable to National Standards. For research applications that demand a high technical specification, Skye sensors are among the best.

Apollo Meter

Apollo Meter from Skye Instruments

We are proud to announce the arrival of Apollo! Apollo is a hand-held meter specifically designed to allow easy readings of light sensors out in the field, come rain or shine.  Its intuitive and clear interface lets users take direct and live readings from attached light sensors, has a customizable offset level, and can store configurations for up to 6 different sensors, which allows efficient use of time whilst taking multiple measurements.

Apollo can be used with any Skye UV sensors, as well as some sensors from other manufacturers, making it the perfect choice for radiation research, especially UV light measurements.  If you already have a Skye sensor, or a compatible sensor, all you need is Apollo.

UV Sensors for use with Apollo

Three sensors designed to measure the UVA (315-400nm) and UVB (280-315nm) parts of sunlight, plus a UVI sensor designed to match the erythemal curve. Components used have been selected for their stability in a UV environment. The bandwidth characteristics are tailored to the ISO standard.

SpectroSense2 Meter/Logger

SpectroSense 2+ Logger and light sensors from Skye Instruments

The SpectroSense2 meters have been designed specifically for recording accurate light and radiation measurements, even at very low light levels. They are compatible with Skye’s own extensive range of sensors plus those from other manufacturers. The 4 line LCD display presents readings from up to 8 sensors or channels simultaneously by freezing the display and scrolling as necessary. These measurements can be either direct sensor measurements or ratios between pairs of sensor channels, e.g. for comparing light levels inside : outside; above canopy : below canopy; above surface : underwater; incident : reflected etc.
