CMP6 Pyranometer

Pyranometer for good quality measurements for green-house climate control, field testing and PV installations.

Description

CMP6 has a similar detector to the CMP3, but has improved performance due to the increased thermal mass and the double glass dome construction. It is ideal for cost-effective, good quality, measurements in hydrological networks and agriculture.

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 20mV in relation to the amount of incoming radiation. When a higher voltage level or a 4 to 20mA signal is required, the AMPBOX is the perfect solution.
