FieldScout CM 1000 NDVI Meter

“Point-and-shoot” technology to instantly measure red (660 nm) and near
infrared (840 nm) spectral bands

  • Detects stress earlier than visual monitoring
  • Computes Normalized Difference Vegetative Index (NDVI)
  • Laser guides outline the edges of the measured sample area
  • Calculates and displays a running average for multiple readings
  • Connects to any GPS receiver that has a serial output option*
  • Equipped with internal data logger and RS-232 port
  • Records over 3,000 measurements (1,350 with added GPS/DGPS option)
  • Configure and download meter with FieldScout® software and USB-to-3.5mm-Stereo-Plug Adapther (Item 3661U.(included)**
  •  Includes hard carrying case and batteries

      A PC serial interface cable supplied by the manufacturer of the GPS receiver is also required.
  **PC cable connects to a computer USB port.
