Description

The NEW Plant Canopy Imager CI-110 captures wide-angle canopy images while estimating Leaf Area Index (LAI) and measuring Photosynthetically Active Radiation (PAR) levels. Images live-update on the built-in capacitative monitor, providing instant data for verification and analysis with integrated software in the field under any daylight conditions. User-selected zenith and azimuthal divisions allow investigation of any canopy sectors desired, and the instrument’s light-weight design makes it convenient for canopy imaging in any location! Now with updated GPS accuracy with access to four different satellite constellations, and the ability to interchange lens filters over the camera for more specific measurements.

Technical Data

  • Self-levelling digital camera provides 150° field-of-view image of the plant canopy
  • Measures photosynthetically active radiation (PAR) and calculates sunflecks using 24 photodiodes
  • Non-destructive calculation of leaf area index (LAI) using imagesor PAR sensors
  • Calculated LAI of plant canopies across multiple size classes; adjustable camera lens focus for varying canopy heights
  • Calculation of canopy gap fraction distribution, leaf angle distribution, and plant canopy extinction coefficients
  • No above-canopy reference readings required for gap fraction LAI Image and data visible in the field and saved for further analysis Full, user-selectable range of zenith & azimuth angles, digitally applied User selectable and literature-based thresholding methods, including the Otsu Method and Entropy Crossover Technique
  • Performs measurements under any sky condition Ability to change images RGB (red, green and blue) color value(s) Location acquired via GPS, Glonass, Beidou and Galileo with amplified antenna Internal compass for standardizing measurements across location
  • Neutral Density Filters included to optimize images across varying light conditions
