Meteorological Technology World Expo 2018event picture
On 9, 10 and 11 October the Meteorological Technology World Expo (MTX), the event for any company or organization looking for more accurate and next-generation weather forecasting and climate-change measurement technologies and services, will once again be held at Amsterdam RAI. Amsterdam being ‘just round the corner’ for Kipp & Zonen, we will of course participate in this world’s largest meteorological event. You are welcome to our booth.

From October 9 to 11
Location: Amsterdam, the Netherlands

About MTX 2018

Meteorological Technology World Expo (MTX) is a truly international exhibition where you can find the very latest climate, weather and hydro-meteorological forecasting, measurement and analysis technologies. The event is not open to the general public or students: it is a meeting place for professionals and purchasers of major technological systems only. If you are looking for new measurement, forecasting and analysis technologies, weather or research service providers, or simply looking to meet up with your established suppliers in one convenient location, MTX is the place to be.

What can Kipp & Zonen offer you? 

You will no doubt be aware that Kipp & Zonen is market-leader in the field of solar monitoring instruments and atmospheric science equipment. Our high quality, very accurate solar radiation measuring instruments include CMP and Smart SMP pyranometers, CSD3 sunshine duration sensors, SGR3 and SGR4 pyrgeometers, CHP1 and SHP1 pyrheliometers (combined with a Solys2 sun tracker); and of course RaZON+ the affordable extension of your network, described below. But there is more.

SUV radiometer

If you attended last year’s MTX you will remember the SUV series we introduced during that event.

This new SUV series offers a measurement solution for every part of the ultraviolet solar radiation spectrum. Thanks to the latest detector technology, digital signal processing and Modbus® output we were able to re-engineer the SUV5 total UV radiometer into dedicated UVA, UVB and UVE (UV Index) models, thus constituting a range that is smarter than any alternative. Our unique UVIATOR software improves measurement results by correcting for solar angle and ozone column effects.

SUV5 is a general-purpose instrument eminently suitable for meteorological applications. The high quality dome and diffuser warrant optimum directional response. A custom-designed optical filter ensures that the instrument responds to the total of both UVA and UVB radiation. The photodiode generates a voltage output linearly proportional to the UV intensity.

Advantages of the new SUV series are that the power consumption is low, that you won’t need to change the desiccant for the next 10 years, and that the SUV series comes with a 5 years warranty period.

Looking for a low-cost extension of your network? Think RaZON+!

RaZON+ is the innovative and user friendly turn-key solution that provides all components of solar irradiance, such as Direct Normal (DNI), Diffuse Horizontal (DHI) and calculated Global Horizontal (GHI), as well as sunshine duration.

Particularly interesting features of RaZON+ are the maintenance free Gear Drive sun tracker and the anti-soiling Smart pyrheliometer design. RaZON+ is not just innovative and user friendly, it is also really affordable.

X-LAS MKII, our new Large Aperture Scintillometer

Our new X-LAS MkII measures over long distances, even up to 12 km. If you are interested in measuring atmospheric turbulence and in monitoring Evapo-Transpiration be sure to visit our booth. Our scientist is an expert in the field of atmospheric science and he will be pleased to tell you all about our Large Aperture Scintillometers, the LAS and of course the new X-LAS MkII.

You can find the Kipp & Zonen team in Hall 8. Our booth is # 9005!

You are welcome to join us at booth #9005 and take a look at our instruments. We will be there for you to advise you on solar monitoring as well as on the measurement of atmospheric parameters. If you have a specific measurement challenge we will be happy to help you find a solution. Apart from that, we welcome your feedback and we hope you’ll share your views on solar radiation monitoring for the near and distant future with us. And naturally, you are always welcome for a friendly chat.
