SQ-120 Electric Calibration Quantum Sensor

Within the next few months I would like to be able to measure PAR in my tanks myself.With that being said, I have made plenty of mistakes in my life to understand that I need to fully understand something the beat that I can before I embark on a mission. At the moment I think that I wouldn't have a problem using the sensor with a digital multimeter rather than a lux meter. A few question, once I have the sensor how would I hook it up to the multimeter? How would I use the multimeter with the sensor, as far as which setting would it need to be on? Am I right in thinking that once the sensor is hooked up to the multimeter and it is on the right setting that I would just need to multiply that number by 5? Are there any other companies that make sensors rather than Apogee? If there is a thread for this already, my apologies.

If you do it fast enough then you will have time to do it again
