SMP6 Pyranometer

The SMP6 is a first class pyranometer that combines the sensor technology and housing from the CMP6. The SMP6 has both digital and analogue outputs, low maintenance, extremely robust and reliable and comes with 5 years warranty (*). 

The SMP6 has an internal desiccant that will last for at least 10 years. This minimizes maintenance significantly. 

The interval for dome cleaning can be extended, and the quality of measurements maximized, by fitting SMP6 with the CVF4 ventilation unit.

The SMP6 has a RS-485 Modbus® RTU interface, amplified analogue output, improved response time and temperature corrected measurement data. The wide and low power supply range from 5 to 30 VDC makes integration in meteorological and solar energy stations easy. The SMP6 is extreme robust and reliable and comes with 5 years warranty

Thanks to standardized output and connections of every SMP6, exchanging instruments for recalibration is easy. 

SmartExplorer Windows™ software for data logging, display of data and Modbus® address setting is provided as standard.

(*) This product will need to be registered by the end-user within 6 months of purchase to activate the warranty extension.

FAQ

  • What type of pyranometer can I use for my fixed PV panels farm?
    • For this application the CMP10 and SMP10 are advised as they have an internal drying cartridge that will last for at least 10 years.

      Please note that the pyranometer needs to be mounted in the same angle (POA) as the PV panel. 

       

      For users that prefer the desiccant visible Kipp & Zonen offers the CMP11 and SMP11 with visible and user changeable desiccant.
