Vernier PYR-BTA Pyranometer
Vernier PYR-BTA Pyranometer Description
The Pyranometer measures the power of electromagnetic radiation. It is sensitive to near infrared, visible, and UV radiation, where 90% of solar energy is concentrated. It reads in watts per square meter, so it is great for experiments with solar cells and calculating their efficiency.
It is weatherproof and has a dome-shape top to allow it to handle a wide range of sun angles. It comes with a 6 meter cord.
Irradiance Range: 0 to 1100 watts/m2 (in full sun)
Absolute Accuracy: ±5%
Long-Term Drift: Less than 3% per year
45° zenith angle: 1%
75° zenith angle: ±5%
Wavelength range: 370 nm to 1140 nm
Current draw: 300 µA
Output signal: 0 to 4.4 V (dark to full sunlight)
Resolution (LabQuest 2, LabQuest, LabQuest Mini, Go!Link, LabPro): 0.3 Watts/m2
Diameter: 2.4 cm
Height: 2.75 cm
Materials: Anodized aluminum with case acrylic lens
Pyranometer lens cover
