The MS-80 Secondary Standard pyranometer was inspired by the combination of latest technologies and state-of-the-art thermopile sensors, enabling a breakthrough in unprecedented low zero-offset behaviour and fast sensor response. The compact sensor with single dome, based on a isolated thermopile detector and Quartz diffusor is immune to offsets and integrates all optional value added functions such as a ventilator, heater and different industrial interfaces. The heater and ventilator are recommended, particularly over areas impacted by dew, frost, snow, and dust.
MS-80 is designed with analog voltage output. The analogue MS-80 pyranometer can be used as a reference sensor to measure the global broad-band solar radiation with a high accuracy. With excellent temperature response and non-linearity characteristics, it provides optimal performance throughout the year.
