Underwater Lowering Frame
The lowering frame enables Skye light sensors to be mounted vertically (facing upwards and / or downwards) suitable
for underwater measurements. Each Skye sensor is fully cosine corrected and accepts light from a hemisphere, so two
sensors, facing one in each direction, allows both incident and diffused or reflected light to be measured.
The stabilising fin keeps the structure vertical and stable, even in flowing waters. Made from a brass and stainless steel
construction it is corrosion and maintenance free.

Skye Instruments have been specialising in light and radiation sensors since
1983. All are designed, manufactured and calibrated to the highest
standards. Each is supplied with a Calibration Certificate traceable to the
UK’s National Physical Laboratory (NPL).
We are proud to launch our range of new Underwater Sensors, specially
designed for temporary immersion to 20m and permanent immersion up to 4m, For greater depths please contact Skye.
We have available a sensor with a milliamp output, suitable for use with our
SpectroSense2 or DataHog2 light meters/datalogger. Or an amplified
version with a Voltage output, ideal for use with third party light
The new Underwater range of sensors is based on our popular SKR 1840 – 2
Channel Sensor, which means we are able to offer 1 or 2 channel versions, with
a choice of wavelengths between 400 and 1050 nm. Popular choices include
PAR, LUX and Red/Far-Red.
Please contact Skye with further details about your application.
