I've stumbled across this thread while searching Google for Arduino Quantum Light Sensors. After a pretty thorough read let me extend my congratulations. Your ingenuity inspired me to get on this form and see what other types of neat things are happening.
I'm a hydroponic tomato, cucumber, lettuce, daisy grower. Measuring PAR (400-700nm) is super important, especially with our lettuce. I'm curious, you're measuring PAR underwater or are you utilizing it above, or both? I'm looking to place this sensor 12" above canopy height.
This is going to be my first arduino project as well so wish me luck. Is there a list of the most updated parts that need to be purchased? I noticed a few posts going back and fourth about changing particular things for final production. I have an expensive quantum sensor at the university I can use to calibrate this with as well. Would be happy to post videos and pictures!
