RaZON+ Solar Monitoring System
  • RaZON+ Solar Monitoring System

RaZON+ All-In-One Solar Monitoring System

Quick Overview

The RaZON+ is an all-in-one solar monitoring system that can accurately monitor the direct and diffuse solar irradiance. The unit comes with integrated pyrheliometer to measure the DNI and a shaded pyranometer to measure the DHI. The RaZON+ uses the DNI and DHI values to calculate the Global Horizontal Solar Irradiance, which provides a more accurate value than an unshaded pyranometer. The integrated data logger will log all the readings in a single data set and allow the readings to be accessed via Ethernet or RS485 interface with Modbus RTU or ASCII protocols. Data is also available via a WiFi connection allowing data, graphs and status information to be viewed on a smartphone, tablet or laptop. An extra Modbus input allows for additional sensors to be connected for compact weather stations, additional solar instruments or various temperature sensors.

Details

RaZON+ is an ALL-IN-ONE Solar Monitoring System that accurately measures both direct normal irradiance (DNI) and diffuse horizontal irradiance (DHI). Even though the standard RaZON+ instrument specifications are first or second class, the calculated GHI is even more accurate than the SMP11 or SMP21 secondary standard pyranometers. The integrated PH1 pyrheliometer is tested to be within 1% of the CHP1 and SHP1.

Integrated Logging, GPS and Wi-Fi Communication
All irradiance measurements are in W/m², sunshine duration in hours, energy in kWh/m², solar position angles and status information is logged on the integrated logger. With the Wi-Fi connection you can easily set-up, configure and check the RaZON+ using any smart device like a tablet. RS-485 (Modbus or ASCII) and Ethernet are available for measurement data communication. The integrated GPS receiver provides accurate location information and accurate time stamps.

Anti-Soiling Design and Minimal Maintenance
The innovative features of the pyrheliometer minimize the effects of soiling when operated unattended in remote locations, without compromising the high accuracy of the instrument. Both the pyrheliometer and pyranometer are based on quartz diffuser technology. Thanks to the open collimator tube design and the quartz diffuser, the pyrheliometer is resistant to the effects of soiling. Moreover, RaZON+ is based on a completely maintenance-free gear drive sun tracking mechanism.

Full Weather Station and On-Site Calibration
A firmware upgrade will be available for the RaZON+ from 2017. The already available Modbus input will then accept Compact Weather Stations, a tilted irradiance pyranometer or PV Panel Temperature sensor, making it the meteorological center of any Solar Power Plant. An integrated calibration algorithm will make it possible to compare your pyranometers against the RaZON+. With Internet access to the Kipp & Zonen server an on-site pyranometer check and calibration according to the ISO9847 standard will be possible.
