The MS-01 is a practical handheld readout device for irradiance measurements, with a built-in inclinometer to measure roof pitch, a compass to measure roof orientation and thermometer to measure ambient and module temperature.

The MS-01 handheld solar irradiance meter is the perfect instrument for solar photovoltaic (Solar PV) and solar thermal installers to conduct comprehensive solar PV site surveys.

The MS-01 is a high specification, user-friendly irradiance meter that allows for quick and easy irradiance measurements, displaying the information in either W/m2 or BTU/hr-ft2. The ideal solution for both solar photovoltaic (Solar PV) and solar thermal applications.

The use of a photovoltaic reference cell provides a more representative measurement of solar energy and greater accuracy and ...
