Following the success of the SMP series of smart pyranometers released last year, Kipp & Zonen is continuing to develop smart instruments. Now, Kipp & Zonen proudly presents the new SHP1 smart pyrheliometer for measuring Direct Normal Irradiance (DNI) from the sun.

In Solar Energy applications the Direct Normal Irradiance is an essential input for power plants based on concentrating mirror or lense systems.
