STAND-ALONE Configuration

The STAND-ALONE configuration of the TERRESTRIAL version of the MONITORING-PAM is suited for independent long-term monitoring of photosynthesis at remote places in the absence of power supply. The system consists of the battery-powered data acquisition system MONI-DA, two solar panels MONI-SP and up to seven emitter-detector heads MONI-HEAD/485.

The MONI-DA logs data on a microSD flash card and, additionally, on an 8 MByte ring buffer. Online connection between MONI-DA and a Windows computer can be established using the interface MONI-IB1 and USB communication. By means of a telephone or satellite modem, data can be transmitted to distant computers with little time delay.
