MS-80 Albedometer consists of two MS-80 pyranometers and a special albedo kit with a glare screen to measure the albedo with the lowest uncertainty. 

It is used in solar power plants with bi-facial PV modules and in meteorological applications.

MS-80 is a unique pyranometer compliant to the "Fast reponse" and "Spectrally flat" sub-category under ISO 9060:2018 Class A. 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 compact sensor with a single dome, based on an isolated thermopile detector and Quartz diffusor is immune to offsets and integrates all optional value-added functions such as a ventilator, heater and different industrial ...
