- Sensor Wand for PAR Sensors - Apogee
The Apogee Sensor Wand is fully submersible, allowing a PAR meter's sensor to be securely attached to the end of the wand. The wand lets you keep your hands dry while allowing you to get the sensor in hard to reach places your hands or make-shift holder can access.
Full-length fiberglass wand is saltwater safe and compatible with all radiation sensors. Segments can be added or removed to get the perfect length for your tanks needs up to 40 inches long allowing you to get the far back corners and other places you would normally not be able to reach.

Essential but poorly designed By Erick375 on 12/1/2019Erick375 wouldn't recommend this product to a friendAgree, don't know how you can use the par meter without, HOWEVER it comes in three pieces that intuitively need to be screwed together. The problem is there is no thread, just plastic that should "take" when you screw one section to the next. I was successful (-ish) screwing the hand piece to the middle piece, but couldn't get the middle and the end section to catch. In the process of trying to get those together I torqued the first and second sections, ruining that joint.
After spending thousands of dollars at BRS (and love you guys) this is the first thing I ever wanted to return. HOWEVER, you must have the end to hold the sensor in place, so I'm resigned to just using the last leg of the three and sticking my arm halfway into the tank to get a reading.
Impossible to use PAR Meter without this By Jonathan on 3/24/2019Jonathan would recommend this product to a friendI think it would be nearly impossible to accurately use the PAR meter without this wand.
It's a NEED.
Fantastic way to get that probe exactly where you want it. By Randall on 9/28/2017Randall would recommend this product to a friendI guess I could try to get into various tight spots in my tank by holding the Apogee probe in my hand, but I'd be more likely to do accidental damage as well as partially blocking the light with my arm, as compared to using this very useful add-on.
Must have By Kevin on 2/16/2017Kevin would recommend this product to a friendThe quality is there and should last for years of ownership.
Nice Product By Rob on 7/10/2016Rob would recommend this product to a friendQuality is very good and hardware is good quality as well. No problems with rust, so must be stainless nut and bolt.
Great Tool for PAR Readings By Jeff on 4/9/2016Jeff would recommend this product to a friendThis tool is awesome. I just wish the app was better. It would be nice if the app had aquarium views that you could record the different readings of where they are in the tank.
Does the Neptune par sensor fit in one of these?
The Neptune par sensor does work along with the sensor wand and includes the tightening screw to hold it in place. Let us know if you have any other questions, thanks!
