CMP11 Pyranometer

Pyranometer for Meteorological networks, reference measurements in extreme climates, polar or arid. It is the industry standard for solar radiation monitoring in PV and thermal energy plants.

Description

CMP11 uses the temperature compensated detector technology originally developed for the CMP22 and is a step up in performance from the CMP6. It is particularly suitable for meteorological networks and the reduced response time of 1.66 seconds (63%) meets the requirements for solar energy applications.

The integral bubble level is raised to the top of the housing and can be viewed without removing the redesigned snap-on sun shield, which also covers the connector. The connector with gold-plated contacts allows for easy exchange and re-calibration. The screw-in drying cartridge is easy to remove and the replacement desiccant is supplied in convenient refill packets.

The pyranometer does not require any power, it supplies a low voltage of 0 to 20 mV in relation to the amount of incoming radiation. When a higher voltage level or a 4 to 20 mA signal is required, the AMPBOX is the perfect solution.
