1st Class Pyranometer

1st Class Pyranometer



Fully compliant with all ISO-9060 specification criteria & supplied standard with a WRR (World Radiometric Reference) traceable calibration certificate, the 5600-0601 is a First Class Pyranometer as defined by the World Meteorological Organization. It is suitable for the measurement of solar irradiance on a plane surface (W/m2). The pyranometer incorporates a 64-thermo-couple sensor housed under two concentric fitting Schott K5 glass domes. A white screen prevents the body of the pyranometer from heating up. It is supplied with an integrated built in bubble level and feet for accurate leveling. A drying cartridge keeps the interior free from humidity.
