SR30-L Secondary Standard Pyranometer with RS-485 Modbus Communications and Integrated Heating and Ventilation

Overview

The SR30, manufactured by Hukseflux, features Recirculating Ventilation and Heating (RVH™) technology. As a standalone unit, the SR30 is fully compliant with IEC 61724-1 standards, whereas other pyranometers would require external ventilation/heating units to be compliant. The SR30 is an ideal instrument for solar resource and PV performance monitoring.

Benefits and Features

  • Heated for high data availability, featuring RVH™ technology
  • Compliant with IEC 61724-1:2017 Class A
  • Remote sensor diagnostics
