SP Lite2 Silicon Pyranometer

SP Lite2 Silicon Pyranometer

Quick Overview

The SP Lite2 Silicon cell photo-diode pyranometer offers an economical solution for the reliable routine measurement of incoming global solar irradiance. It has a conical diffuser that offers excellent directional (cosine) response, causes rain to run off and is easy to keep clean. The SP Lite2 can be used under all weather conditions and is designed for a long operating life with simple maintenance. Spectral range 400 to 1100nm. The SP Lite2 has a similar spectral response to PV solar panels and is therefore an ideal pyranometer to use with a handheld display and data logger for field testing existing or proposed photovoltaic power systems.

Details

The SP Lite 2 is a simple, low cost pyranometer for routine measurements of solar radiation. The unit has been designed to be used in all weather conditions with minimal maintenance. The SP Lite 2 features a silicon photo-diode detector with a conical diffuser to provide a full 180° field of view and allow rain to run off. The photo-diode does limit the spectral range, 400-1100nm, but this provides a similar spectral response to photovoltaic solar cells.

The SP Lite 2 comes with two sensitivity output options. The basic unit has a sensitivity of about 10µV/W/m², whilst the extra sensitive (EX SENS) unit has a sensitivity range of 60 to 100µV/W/m². The EX SENS unit therefore provides a much larger mV output range and allows a better resolution on a data logger.

Ingress Protection IP67

Two SP-Lite 2's can easily be bolted back to back to make a simple albedometer with a threaded hold suitable for a screw-in mounting rod for easier mounting. The sensor also includes an integrated bubble level for easy leveling. The standard cable length is 5m, with a 15m cable length is also available.

The SP-LITE 2 can be used with a suitable handheld display logger to provide a suitable test unit for site evaluation on established or proposed solar PV installations.

Field Data Logger Options

Meteon is an accurate handheld display unit and data logger suitable for connection to a single pyranometer. Its small size, long battery life and universal input make it an ideal tool for many test and field applications. Meteon comes in a carrying case that also has space for a pyranometer. The Meteon can store up to 3500 readings with min, max and average values per logging period.


SQ2010 is a multichannel handheld display unit and data logger suitable for up to 8 input channels with universal inputs suitable for mV, V, mA and PT100 or thermocouple inputs. This would allow a field monitoring kit to accept inputs from an albedometer, thermocouples for solar panel & air temperature and a current sensor to monitor generated power. The SQ2010 comes in a carrying case and we can supply the other sensors and suitable portable carry cases to suit your requirements.

 

If you require a permanent solar panel efficiency monitoring system, please contact us directly to discuss your requirements. We can provide bespoke tailored systems to fit any requirements with loggers suitable for transmitting data via GPRS, Ethernet or for very remote locations via an Iridium satellite connection.
