Is the probe influenced by ambient light?
The probe will be affected by ambient light. All probe types should be shielded from ambient light by installation in a closed vessel, or by shielding the probe with a dark housing. Our -T1000 probe has a screw-on cap to block the optical field of view of the fiber, while allowing easy access to the probe tip. Also, an overcoat of silicone can be applied to the probe (at no charge) to eliminate ambient light effects.
