Par Meter

Does anyone have access to a par meter?

Iím running a 45cm Chihiros Series A+ and Iím trying to get a sense for the par level at different dimmer settings. At max power (setting 7), itís putting out 7,200 luminous flux.

Is anyone willing to sell a used one or know where I can rent one?

Yes! Just what I needed to sort out the issues with dimmable settings on my Kessil!

Osmosis - good to hear. How different were your settings before getting par readings vs post par readings.

Oh, I put my name on the list, about two weeks for the meter. I want good numbers to use when programming my light.
