Apogee’s new MS-100 “InSight” device is a handheld, portable spectroradiometer specifically designed for taking spectral measurements and analyzing grow lights of all kinds. The unit instantly calculates the most important metrics for photobiology including:

  • PPFD and ePPFD
  • YPFD and TPFD
  • PFD-UV and PFD-B
  • PFD-G and PFD-R
  • PFD-FR and FR F
  • PPE and iPPE
  • CFI and CRI
  • CCT and Lux
  • R F-R R
  • Foot candle (fc)
  • λp and λd
  • CIE 1931 x & y
  • CIE 1976 u’ & v’

The unit can be used in multiple modes. Spot check mode allows you to take a measurement and see the different metrics on the unit's small screen, which also includes a basic spectral graph. When paired with an iOS or Android phone, the Apogee Insight App allows you to check different lighting metrics, store multiple spectral samples for download, and view full-color graphs.

The InSight also comes with free, full-featured Apogee Insight Software for PC that offers additional spectral analysis features and the ability to log measurements. The unit can log measurements over time using the included power supply or when connected to a computer (via USB) or compatible datalogger (via Modbus RS-485). Please note that the unit is not waterproof and needs to be protected in harsh environments.
