Radiation Sensors (Irradiance)

Pyranometers (global radiation sensors) measure global radiation. They are also used as reference instruments due to their measurement precision. The use of this sensor is crucial for measurements with solar-powered applications. It is advisable to use only classified and calibrated pyranometers to ensure accurate results. Adjustable feet and a level allow easy horizontal adjustment.

Specification of Solar irradiance sensors acc. ISO 9060

Pyranometers are classified according to the ISO 9060 standard: "Solar energy - Specification and classification of instruments for measuring hemispherical solar and direct solar radiation". The standard is officially approved by the World Meteorological Organization (WMO). The standard specifies three classes:

  • Secondary Standard: Scientific quality and highest accuracy
    Applications: Meteorology (BSRN Network); Testing in PV , CPV and CSP

  • First Class: Good quality
    Applications: Measurements for hydrology networks and greenhouse climate control

  • Second Class: Medium quality
    Application: Economic solution for routine measurements in weather stations and field testing
