The Solar Radiation Sensor, or solar pyranometer, measures global radiation, the sum at the point of measurement of both the direct and diffuse components of solar irradiance.
The outer shell shields the sensor body from thermal radiation and provides an airflow path for convection cooling of the body, minimizing heating of the sensor interior. It includes a cutoff ring for cosine response, a level indicator, and fins to aid in aligning the sensor with the sun's rays.
The transducer is an hermetically-sealed silicon photodiode; the included amplifier converts the transducer current into 0 to +2.5 Vdc.
Spring-loaded mounting screws, in conjunction with the level indicator, enable rapid and accurate leveling of the sensor.
