The MS-40 is an ISO 9060:2018 Class C pyranometer based on the EKO's universal sensor platform. It is the most cost-effective irradiance sensor to measure Solar irradiance across the full solar spectrum. It can be used for agro meteorological networks and professional small scale PV sites where solar radiation is taken seriously.

Featuring an analog (mV) output, every MS and S-Series Pyranometer, including the MS-40, is compatible with the optional MV-01 ventilator/heater and albedo mounting kit.

MS-40 pyranometers are manufactured in a consistent way, followed by strict quality inspection and performance evaluation. EKO provides a unique calibration compliant to the international standards defined by ISO/IEC17025/9847.

The sensor has a 5-year warranty with a 2 year re-calibration interval recommended and it …
