Each of the lights have been tested in their specified grow area and at their recommended or optimum hanging height. We have used a quantum sensor to take multiple PAR measurements across the grow area to calculate the average PAR intensity and usable PAR output of the fixture (the amount of PAR reaching the plant canopy with reflective walls).
