MS-40 Second Class pyranometer is based on the EKO's universal sensor platform. It can be used for agro meteorological networks and professional small scale PV sites where solar radiation is taken seriously. The MS-40A and MS-40M provide a digital output (4-20mA or Modbus 485 RTU). The MS-40/40A/40M can be used with the optional MV-01 ventilator / heater.

The 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 years warranty with a 2 years re-calibration interval recommended and it is no longer necessary to change the desiccant.

Applications and uses

The accurate solar radiation measurements and the reliable driving require a little knowledge and attention: think about environmental influences (wind, rain/snow, soiling), re-calibration (bi-annual), without mentioning data processing, spectral ...
