- High accuracy solar irradiance
- Easy connection
An output of 160 mV from the pyranometer corresponds to approximately 1000 W/m² and are typically connected to a data logger.
The purpose of the instrument is to measure global irradiance, i.e. diffuse plus direct solar irradiance. The pyranometer can be mounted on a horizontal surface or in the same plane as a solar heat collector or photovoltaic (PV) panel when the global irradiation on these surfaces is of interest.
SolData SD-80SPC Solar Radiation Sensors are also in operation high in the Himalayas in Nepal. At the other temperature extreme, the instruments are used in hotter climates such as those found in Australia. Each instrument is temperature compensated for use from -10°C to +50°C.
