SP Lite2 is designed for routine measurement of solar radiation.
It is especially designed for Photovoltaic / solar energy module monitoring.
SP Lite2 can be used under all weather conditions. The sensor
measures the solar energy received from the entire hemisphere. It is
ideal for measuring available energy for use in solar energy
applications, plant growth, thermal convection and evapotranspiration.
SP Lite2 uses a photodiode detector, which creates a voltage output
that is proportional to the incoming radiation. Also due to the unique
design of the diffuser, its sensitivity is proportional to the cosine of
the angle of incidence of the incoming radiation, allowing for accurate
and consistent measurements.
SP Lite2 is easy to use. It can be directly connected to voltmeter or
data logger. Direct readout in Watts per square meter (W/m²) can be
derived from the measured voltage divided by the calibration
coefficient. It is fitted with the Kipp & Zonen high quality yellow
SP Lite2 features adjustment screws and a bubble level integrated in
the mounting flange for your convenience. A threaded hole in the body of
the housing takes our accessory screw-in mounting rod. Two instruments
can easily be bolted back-to-back amd fitted with a mounting rod to make
a simple albedometer.
