Making History

Innovation by EKO, since 1927

Weather is often changeable; rain one-minute, blazing sun the next. Climate meanwhile takes a longer view. It’s the weather of a particular place seen over years, decades, maybe even centuries.

EKO Instruments was founded in a spirit of innovation, with a commitment to accuracy, at the heart of what we do. For over 90 years, that commitment has helped to drive the development of industry-leading solar energy sensors, and scientific instruments for environmental research.

Today, many of our customers' study weather and climate, in some cases looking towards the past to help predict the future. At EKO, looking back at our history helps us to look ahead; inspiring ideas for the future.

 


 

1955 

EKO Instruments successfully developed Japan's first pyranometer at the request of the ‘Japan Meteorological Agency’.

1985

Working with the Electronic Technology Research Institute (now the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology), we successfully developed a new solar cell evaluation system for large outdoor arrays, the ‘IV curve tracer’.

1990

We developed the world’s first UV-B UV Radiometer.

2014

We opened the Ami Solar Park solar power plant, followed a year later by a second site at Inashiki. These plants not only generate electricity but provide a unique facility for comparative verification testing.

2016

We launched a new generation sensor, the MS-80 Class A Pyranometer. A patented design with unmatched zero offset, ultra-fast response, and Quartz diffusor, the MS-80 is an industry leader that we continue to develop with the new variants utilising the latest technologies.

2020

At the turn of the year EKO Instruments announced a global pledge to phase out all possible single-use, and non-recyclable plastics from product packaging by the end of 2022; a major challenge but one made with an eye to the future; reflecting on our shared responsibility and desire to contribute to the preservation and protection of our natural environment. We are also working on the new ‘MS-S’ Series of ‘Smart’ sensors, and the accompanying ‘Hibi’ app. Watch this space!

Looking Ahead

Whether it's developing a new generation of sensors, the next game-changing innovation in accuracy, or the apps and tools to make our instruments easier to use; we continue to look ahead to the future.
