PCE-SPM 1 Solar Radiation Meter
with integrated sensor that determines energy efficiency in photovoltaic systems / also used to find the optimum location for new installations

The PCE-SPM 1 solar radiation meter is the optimal device for solar engineers, architects and those working in the field of solar engineering. This solar radiation meter will measure solar power. Parameters such as current and voltage can also be measured with an optional multimeter with data logger, device. This allows the user to take measurements over extended periods of time to determine the compilation and layout of a  photovoltaic system. Light intensity is measured using a silicon crystal. The integrated processor in the solar radiation meter is responsible to make automatic corrections to ensure accuracy after calibrating each device in the solar simulator. The most important parameter is Ptot (in W/m²) and can be seen clearly on the display. Data saved in the internal memory (32,000 readings) can be transferred to a computer by way of software and cable connection. This solar radiation meter has been developed for the use outside and is made of a durable enclosure that is weather resistant. Its compact design makes it an ergonomic device. If there are any questions about this solar radiation meter PCE-SPM 1, please have a look at the technical specification below or call: + 44 (0) 2380 98703 0. Our engineers and technicians will gladly advise you regarding the radiation detectors or any other products in terms of regulation and control, or scales and balances of PCE Instruments.

PCE-SPM 1 Solar Radiation Meter

Examples of use

PCE-SPM 1 Solar Radiation Meter application

1. Solar measurement in situ
With the radiation meter, a measurement can be taken of the energy in a specific location. These readings can be used to verify the operating ratio of modules or photovoltaic installations.

2. Simulation of temperature, power, voltage and current of photovoltaic modules.
Note: a multimeter that we have available.

3. Prolonged measurements
The device is equipped with an internal data logger to take measurements over extended periods of time.

PCE-SPM 1 Solar Radiation Meter application

Solar radiation
The radiation meter recognizes complete solar radiation; the direct radiation as well as diffused solar radiation in the atmosphere. The biggest amount of the solar radiation that is reflected by the sun is in the visible infrared spectrum , as ultraviolet radiation is absorbed by the atmosphere. Solar radiation can last up to a year, as the angle of reflection is greater in the summer than it is in the winter and the rays fall more directly on the surface of the earth.
