High all

Was wondering if anyone in the valley has a par meter, so i can check my light readings as i just installed my diy LED project. If someone could loan me, or come by and run the checks i am in abbotsford.

Thanks Bob

I've got a light Milwaukee meter that measures in LUX. Doesn't give an absolute PAR reading but is good for comparing relative light intensity. I use it to measure the light output from my fixture when it's time to change the lamps, then raise it up until I get the same reading with the new bulbs to prevent light shock. Also use it to measure relative light levels at different depths in the tank.
