Decagon - Model SC-1 - Leaf Porometer for Stomatal Conductance Measurements
Accurate, Affordable, Practical: The SC-1's breakthrough steady-state technology makes accurate stomatal conductance measurements affordable and practical for everyday research.
No Moving Parts
Steady state design means that it has no moving parts. Most porometers manipulate the environment around a leaf using fans and dessicants. The SC-1 leaves the environment alone, and instead determines stomatal conductance by measuring the actual vapor flux from the leaf through the stomates and out to the environment.
Lightweight, Easy to Carry
The porometer weighs about half a pound (300 g). You don't have to haul it around the field with a neck strap. If you get tired of carrying it, you can put it in your pocket.
Save and Download Data
Readings can be shown as either conductance or resistance and saved for downloading later (RS232 cable and download utility software included).
