The Solar Survey series of irradiance meters are
the perfect tools for solar photovoltaic and solar
thermal installers to conduct comprehensive
solar site surveys.
These rugged handheld units not only measure irradiance, but also have a built-in
inclinometer to measure roof pitch, compass to measure roof orientation and thermometer
to measure ambient air and module temperature.These unique additional features makes the
Solar Survey 100 and 200R truly versatile and indispensable instruments, ensuring optimum
conditions for every system you install.
The 200R now features new SolarlinkTM connectivity which allows it to wirelessly give the
PV150 real-time irradiance, ambient temperature and PV module temperature measurement
results simultaneously to electrical tests being conducted, as required by MCS and BS EN
62446 standards. Results can be downloaded from the PV150 into certification software.
The Solar Survey 200R model also includes a data logging facility with USB interface for
data download to a PC. This allows for irradiance and temperature to be recorded
at user-defined intervals over a number of hours or days, the collected data can then be
downloaded to a PC for analysis of for inclusion in installation reports.
These high specification irradiance meters simply and quickly measure the sunís energy,
displaying the information in either W/m2 or BTU/hr-ft2, making them ideal for both solar
photovoltaic and thermal applications.
The use of a photovoltaic reference cell, provides a more representative measurement of solar
energy and greater accuracy and repeatability compared to irradiance meters which use simple
photo diode detectors.
The Solar Survey 100 and 200R both incorporate a display hold feature, which enables the
user to easily capture readings in difficult locations.
