BioTek Marine SQ420 PAR Sensor

Can you guess what new product Biotek Marine has working on lately by looking at the above picture?  Well, if you guessed a new BioTek Marine USB SQ420 PAR Sensor with Aquarium Specific Software then you would be correct.  In the very near future BioTek Marine will be launching the new USB PAR sensor into the market.  The BioTek Marine PAR sensor is the result of a collaboration which began about a year ago when Scott Groseclose from Aquarium Specialty reached out to Apogee Instruments with an idea to co-develop a USB PAR sensor geared towards aquarists.  Apogee began to research and develop the new chip design while BioTek Marine specified the software requirements.  If you find yourself asking "how is it different from the Apogee MQ200 PAR Meter?", then READ ON......

Apogee PAR Meter Wand

Apogee has released a slick new fiberglass sensor wand for the aquarium market.  The wand is a 3 piece design that can be used for different sized aquariums.  It's reef safe and made from fiberglass.  The overall length is 41" (104cm) so it will be able to reach the bottom of most reef aquariums with ease.  By simply detaching the sensor mount you can shorten the wand length to better suit your specific aquarium depth.  In other words, you can one, two or all three sections to suit your needs.

Aquarium Specialty is a master distributor for the Apogee Instruments MQ-200 PAR meters and we expect to have the new 3 piece sensor wands in stock very soon.  Pre-orders and more information are available now by clicking this link.
