We are excited to announce the acquisition of a new Pulse Amplitude Modulation Unit, Diving PAM II, available for all registered users!
There will be a demonstration of the equipment on Tuesday, 30 October 2018 at 2.30pm.
The Diving PAM II is an underwater chlorophyll fluorometer, designed for the examination of photosynthesis in water up to 50m. It measures chlorophyll A fluorescence in photosystem II underwater plants such as sea grasses, macroalgae, and zooxanthellae in corals.
- Maximum diving depth: 50 m
- Operating temperature: -5 to +45 °C
- Measuring light: Red (655 nm) LED, modulation frequencies and PAR. Fluorescence at wavelengths greater than 700 nm is measured.
- Actinic light: Same red LED as for measuring light, maximum actinic PAR = 3000 μmol m-2 s-1, maximum PAR of saturation pulses = 6000 μmol m-2 s-1 adjustable at increments of 500 μmol m-2 s-1
- Data storage: Flash memory, 8 MB, providing memory for more than 27,000 saturation pulse analyses
- Battery: Lithium manganese oxide battery 7.4 V / 5.6 Ah (41.5 Wh) providing power for more than 2000 yield measurements
- Universal Sample Holder (DIVING-II-USH):
- Underwater Cable DIVING-II/K25
- Surface Holder DIVING-SH
- Environmental measurements
- Assessing photosynthesis rates
