SP-610-SS Downward-Looking Thermopile Pyranometer

$333.00

The SP-610 is a downward-looking thermopile pyranometer with an analog output range of 0 to 300 mV. The sensor incorporates a blackbody thermopile detector and flat glass window with a rugged housing design, and high-quality cable terminating in pre-tinned pigtail leads for easy connection to dataloggers and controllers. Typical applications include shortwave radiation measurement in agricultural, ecological, and hydrological weather networks. Sensors are also used to optimize photovoltaic systems.

These sensors can be coupled with an upward looking pyranometer to form an albedometer. For this configuration, we recommend using our AL-130 Albedometer Mounting Bracket. Or use the Apogee SP-700 Albedometer, which consists of one SP-510 upward-facing pyranometer and one SP-610 downward-facing pyranometer, joined with a spliced cable to allow connection of both sensors to a measurement device.

Sensor includes IP68 marine-grade stainless-steel cable connector 30 cm from head to simplify sensor removal and replacement for maintenance and recalibration.
