MS-80U is the most compact and light weight Class A pyranometer on the market. It was designed for special applications which require an ISO 9060:2018 Class A pyranometer with "Fast response" and "Spectrally flat". The innovative patented design was inspired by the combination of latest technologies and state-of-the-art thermopile sensor, enabling a breakthrough in unprecedented low zero-offset behavior and fast sensor response.

The MS-80U can be used on drones for measuring the vertical albedo irradiance profile. The compact and light weight sensor (200 grams) has a single dome, an isolated thermopile detector and Quartz diffusor to guarantee low offset characteristics, which is important in application where strong temperature gradients can be expected. During the flight the irradiance and body temperature …
