- Measures irradiance as required by IEC 62446
- Supplied with calibration certificate
MS-01 is a practical handheld readout device for irradiance measurements, but also has a built-in inclinometer to measure roof pitch, compass to measure roof orientation and thermometer to measure ambient and module temperature.
The MS handheld solar irradiance meters are the perfect tools for solar photovoltaic (Solar PV) and solar thermal installers to conduct comprehensive solar pv site surveys. MS-02 also includes a data logging facility with USB interface for data download to a PC. This allows for irradiance and temperature to be recorded at user-defined intervals over a number of hours or days, the collected data can then be downloaded to a PC for analysis of for inclusion in solar installation reports.
These high specification irradiance meters simply and quickly measure irradiance, displaying the information in either W/m2 or BTU/hr-ft2, making them ideal for both solar photovoltaic (Solar PV) and solar thermal applications.
The use of a photovoltaic reference cell, provides a more representative measurement of solar energy and greater accuracy and repeatability compared to irradiance meters which use simple photo diode detectors. The MS-01 and MS-02 irradiance meters both incorporate a display hold feature, which enables the user to easily capture readings in difficult locations.
