The Kipp & Zonen range of thermopile-based pyranometers is respected around the world for the measurement of solar irradiance to World Meteorological Organisation and ISO 9060:1990 standards. The instruments are used in meteorological research, solar energy research, material testing, climate control in greenhouses, building physics, science and many other applications.
The CMP series of pyranometers have ergonomic features to facilitate installation, maintenance, and exchange for recalibration.
A waterproof socket is fitted for the signature yellow signal cable, which is available in a range of lengths. The integral bubble level is raised to the top of the housing and can be viewed without removing the sun shield. The screw-in drying cartridge can be reactivated with convenient refill packets.
