To maximize the effectiveness of your solar energy system, you need to know how it is performing. A Kipp & Zonen pyranometer accurately measures the solar radiation available to your system in real time. Comparing this with the power generated allows you to calculate the efficiency of the system. A drop in efficiency indicates the need for cleaning, ageing, or a fault, allowing you to schedule preventive maintenance and to monitor your return on investment.
Our CMP series of pyranometers fulfils the requirements of IEC 61215 and IEC 60904-X for the accurate measurement of irradiance for photovoltaic and thermal solar devices. Test laboratories around the world use our pyranometers as reference instruments to test and certify PV cells for power plant projects.
