I have some parts for this project if you like ...

|diverjoe||This is common for small manufacturing companies. Assumed that you would order larger quantities and would want 30 days like most other purchaser. The $50 min pays for that and setting you up an account on their system etc, etc, etc|

It should work. You would need a different library for your display.

This has been a long thread, hopefully it can still garner some activity.
What would need to be done to make this code work with an Arduino Mega 2560 and a ITDB02 or Nextion TFT screen?
I'm wanting to building my own LED lighting controller and I think having a PAR meter built in would be a great feature. This way it could display the PAR value during the different light cycles like sunrise/sunset etc.

If not, could you give me few pointers. I have few questions here. What is the purpose of Cosine diffuser and how do you use it? Is the Photodiode VTB8441BH submersible? I was thinking to put the sensor into the aquarium for constant monitoring. Will this work with Miniature Solar Cell - BPW34? I'd prefer to use the latter one since it is much smaller.
Also, what is the algorithm to calculate the PAR value from the sensor reading?
Thanks a lot,

|rottison||mistergreen now that I have my par meter built I need to calibrate it my local club has a apogee meter I can use. Do you do any thing special to calibrate? And how do you calibrate the par meter normaly?|

|rottison||that is how I thought it went also just wanted to make sure before it was glued down|

I believe that the diffuser goes into the bottom of the jar first, then you put the filters between the acrylic diffuser and the photo diode, so that light passes first through the diffuser, then through the filters, where it hits the screen of the photo diode. Correct me if I'm wrong Mistergreen.

|rottison||so in the morning I will make it more permanent but I have 3 colored ronco disk cut to fit the jar and just dropped in then I will glue the photo optic to the diffuser and drop that in and dab a bit of silicon on the edges to hold it in place few hours drying time I should be almost done.|

|mistergreen||The order of the light filters doesn't matter but I would put the diffuser on top.|

|rottison||mistergreen does it matter what filter or disk goes to the bottom of the jar fist or in what order|

hmm, interesting. The only thing I can think of is the variance on the voltage regulator and resistors in that chain to the atmega that would give us different results. So it would vary from batch to batch.
The regulator is outputting to 4.99V (middle & right pin)and the resistor by the atmega is 10.05K.
Yeah, there might be too many variance to get an exact number. I guess the only way to calibrate is to use another calibrated CEP with light sensor or a PAR sensor.
