PlantExplorer XS

The PlantExplorer XS is an easy to use, plug and play, high tech imaging system that can image the efficiency of photosynthesis, absorption of chlorophyll and morphological parameters

Highlights

  • PAM- and Kautsky-principle chlorophyll fluorescence imaging
  • Single leaf (macro) and whole plant imaging both at 5 Mp
  • Provides: F0, Fm, Fv, Fo’, Fs’, Fm’, Fv’, Ft
  • Kinetic chlorophyll fluorescence images are provided from light adaptation and dark adaptation protocols
  • High signal-to-noise ratio of chlorophyll fluorescence images
  • Blue 450 nm LED measuring light source used for measuring Fo and so on;
  • pulse width: 10 – 100 µs / DC
  • Blue 450 nm LED saturating light source used for measuring Fm and so on;
  • pulse width: 10 – 100 µs / DC
  • LED light source with 730 nm far-red for measuring Fo’ etc.
  • Measuring distance between plant and camera ranges over a distance from 10cm– 30cm
  • Effective imaging area of 18×18 cm2
  • High quality Mp lens, with broad band visible and NIR coating
