Skye have been designing & manufacturing radiation sensors for the UV to the Near Infra-Red since 1983. Our first sensor was the Red Far-red Sensor (SKR 110), which is used in plant phytochrome studies. Our light sensor range slowly expanded to include the traditional sensors for Photosynthesis research, Lux sensor, UV sensors, etc. As we gained insights into how plant & crop research was evolving as well as listening to the Researchers, we introduced a range of 2 & 4 channel sensors where the user could specify the wavelengths & bandwidths. Until recently we could only offer these bespoke sensors from 400 – 1000nm, however we are now able to include wavelengths up to 2300nm.
Now our sensors can be found in a wide variety of applications, such as in controlled environments, industrial installations, intelligent buildings, and so on.
Our sensors are available in completely waterproof versions, which can be used underwater, or in splashproof housings suitable for indoor locations.
Also available are different outputs to suit the meters, dataloggers, control panels to be employed, ie microamp, millivolt, voltage and 4-20mA outputs can be chosen.
All Skye light sensors are individually calibrated against a reference which is traceable to national standards, and each sensor is supplied with its own calibration certificate.
