AMS 96th Annual Meeting, 2016

AMS 96th Annual Meeting, 2016event picture
Solar radiation drives almost every dynamic process on the Earth’s surface and above, from ocean current circulation to weather, climate and the biosphere. The determination of the radiation budget at the surface of the Earth is fundamental to understanding the Earth’s climate system and weather patterns. As the experts in solar radiation measurement, Kipp & Zonen will be exhibiting at the 96th Annual Meeting of the AMS.

From January 10 to 14
Location: New Orleans, Louisiana, USA

Kipp & Zonen is a leading specialist in the measurement of solar and sky radiation, from the ultraviolet to the far infrared. We offer a complete range of high quality instrumentation and accessories ranging from reliable cost-effective products to the best performance instruments available. Meteorological networks around the world are using our pyranometers for the purpose of climate research.

At this year’s AMS meeting we would like to introduce to you our recently expanded range of Smart instruments. The expansion by Smart pyranometers, pyrgeometers and by the SUV UV radiometer allows you to measure sky and solar radiation at all performance levels!

The main benefit of the Smart instruments is the RS-485 Modbus® interface, combined with an amplified analogue output. You can now connect instruments directly to your digital data acquisition system for live radiation measurements, to monitor the status and power supply and to keep track of the calibration history.
