The SL-510 is an upward-looking thermopile pyrgeometer. The sensor incorporates a filter, blackbody thermopile detector, and thermistor with a rugged, self-cleaning sensor housing design, and high-quality cable terminating in pre-tinned pigtail leads for easy connection to dataloggers and controllers. Typical applications include longwave radiation measurement in agricultural, ecological, and hydrological weather networks and renewable energy applications. Sensor includes IP68 marine-grade stainless-steel cable connector 30 cm from head to simplify sensor removal and replacement for maintenance and recalibration.
