How does the Digital LUX Meter work?

The Digital LUX Meter measures the light output falling on a given surface by accurately displaying light levels in terms of Lux (lx) and Foot Candles (fc), which are measurements of lighting intensity. It can measure up to 100,000 Lux (approximately 10,000 Foot Candles).

Why is it important to measure the light output in my garden or growing area?

The output of HID bulbs diminishes gradually over time, but the human eye has difficulty discerning this reduced output. Measuring the ongoing LUX output helps you determine when the output has declined to a point where bulb replacement is recommended, ensuring optimal growth conditions for your plants.
