The Z951 NDVI-Pen is a hand-held battery-powered PlantPen that helps to characterize plants by means of reflectance. The Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI), an important indicator of chlorophyll content in plants, is calculated from measurements of reflected light at two distinct wavelengths, Red (660nm) and NIR (740 nm).
The Z951 NDVI-Pen is a rugged and compact device. It can be used in the field, in the laboratory or the greenhouse. A handy leaf clip, simple two-button operation, and a bright LCD display make this PlantPen easy to use. Built in GPS module allows accurate mapping of the data in the field. NDVI measurements are made noninvasively on intact plants (no leaf tearing or damaging).
Z951 NDVI Pen uses rechargable Li-ion battery and is supplied in a robust case. The memory of Z951 NDVI-Pen has a capacity of 16 MB. Measured data are numbered and may be recalled on the LCD display in sequence. Data can be transfered to a PC via Bluetooth or USB module. This PlantPen comes with software that allows data transfer as well as vusalization of data and export into spreadsheet programs.
