The MS-60A is an ISO 9060:2018 Class B (First class) pyranometer with a built in 4-20mA converter which is compatible to industrial output standards. The new double dome construction provides lower offsets and cosine errors. The MS-60A can be used with the optional MV-01 ventilator / heater.

The MS-60A pyranometers are manufactured in a consistent way followed by strict quality inspection and performance evaluation. EKO provides a unique calibration compliant to the international standards defined by ISO/IEC17025/9847. The sensor has a 5 years warranty with a 2 years re-calibration interval recommended and it is no longer necessary to change the desiccant.

Applications and uses

The accurate solar radiation measurements and the reliable driving require a little knowledge and attention: think about environmental influences (wind, rain/snow, soiling), re-calibration (bi-annual), without mentioning data processing, spectral ...
