Day Light integral virtual sensor is available for configuration only in case when an organization has at least one sensor with PPFD or PPFD_μmol/m²s metric. The DLI virtual sensor creates one measurement per 24 hours at a specified time. Output value shall be calculated only in cases when at least 90% of input values are available. This will represent the amount of Photosynthetically Active Radiation (PAR) received each day as a function of light intensity and duration. DLI in Aranet Cloud is calculated according to the formula:
This option can be selected only by having a PAR sensor, and it will be located as the last option when clicking on "New Virtual Sensor". To create a virtual DLI sensor, navigate to the SENSORS menu -> VIRTUAL SENSORS tab and press the NEW VIRTUAL SENSOR button:
Select Day Light Integral sensor:
Give the Sensor a name, select the source, define the Output time and press CREATE button:
The sensor creation is finished after that:
