The sensors can be connected directly to:

A Light / Solar Energy Sensor and a Light / Solar Energy Sensor with Temperature Probe are supplied as standard probe sets for the GP-HR.

Setting up a Light / Solar Energy channel using the OmniLog Software

Connect the GP-HR logger to a computer and Run the OmniLog software

From the Logger Control Screen select Channel and Probe Setup

Select the Channel  that the sensor is connected to (Ch1,2 or 3)

From the Probe box select the Light Intensity or the  Solar Energy option as shown

Notice that after the Light Intensity or Solar Energy probe has been chosen the Units in the Unit and Scaling box has been set to Lux or Watts per square metre

Now give the Channel a meaningful Long and Short name in the Logger Channel Name box as shown below
