Pyranometers are radiometers designed for measuring the irradiance on a plane surface, normally from solar radiation and lamps.
The Kipp & Zonen range of thermopile-based pyranometers has been in production for several decades and is respected around the world for the measurement of solar irradiance to World Meteorological Organisation and ISO 9060:1990 standards.
The instruments are used in meteorological research, solar energy research, material testing, climate control in greenhouses, building physics, science and many other applications.
The CMP series of pyranometers have ergonomic features to facilitate installation, maintenance, and exchange for recalibration.
The SMP series are the world’s first smart pyranometers with built-in intelligence. Building on the proven CMP series design and measurement technology they add digital signal processing to improve performance and interfaces optimised for industrial data acquisition and control systems.
Our pyranometers are easy to use and are all supplied with calibration certificates that are traceable to WRR (World Radiometric Reference). All instruments have environmental protection class 67.
The CM 4 High Temperature Pyranometer is a radiometer specially designed for measuring solar or artificial light irradiance under the most extreme temperature conditions.
Pyranometer for meteorological networks, solar energy collector testing, materials testing.
Pyranometer for Meteorological networks, reference measurements in extreme climates, polar or arid
Pyranometer for Scientific research requiring the highest level of measurement accuracy and reliability.
The CMP 3 is a low cost pyranometer for accurate routine measurements in many applications.
