MS-80U is the most compact and lightweight Class A pyranometer on the market. It was designed for special applications which require an ISO 9060:2018 Class A pyranometer with “Fast response” and “Spectrally flat”. The innovative patented design was inspired by the combination of latest technologies and state-of-the-art thermopile sensor, enabling a breakthrough in unprecedented low zero-offset behavior and fast sensor response.
The MS-80U can be used on drones for measuring the vertical albedo irradiance profile. The compact and lightweight sensor (200 grams) has a single dome, an isolated thermopile detector and Quartz diffusor to guarantee low offset characteristics, which is important in an application where strong temperature gradients can be expected. During the flight, the irradiance and body temperature can be accurately measured with any analog data acquisition system.
The MS-80U pyranometers are manufactured in a consistent way followed by strict quality inspection and performance evaluation. For each sensor, the directional response and temperature dependency are measured and validated through a measurement report that comes with the sensor. EKO provides a unique calibration compliant to the international standards defined by ISO/IEC17025/9847.
