PYR SOLAR RADIATION SENSOR

Measurements: Solar Radiation

Applications: Plant Ecology, Water Balance Studies, Watershed Characterization

Measure Total Solar Radiation

The PYR  total solar radiation sensor (pyranometer) measures the solar radiation flux density (in watts per meter squared) from a field of view of 180 degrees.

 

Weatherproof for Long-Term Use

The sensor is designed for continuous outdoor use, and is completely water proof and submersible.

 

Accuracy

Accurate measurement depends on cleanliness of the lens, and installation of the sensor at horizontal (180°). The sensor head has a domed diffusion disk to reduce the need for frequent cleaning. A leveling plate is included for accurate installation.
