Litemeter Voltage Pro – Analog Irradiance & Temperature Sensor
Last updateLitemeter Voltage Pro is a analog photovoltaic pyranometer (or silicon irradiance sensor) for measuring solar irradiance and temperature, ideal for monitoring medium-sized photovoltaic systems. Manufacturing and calibrations are IEC 61215, IEC 60904-2, 60904-4 and 60904-10 compliant. Litemeter Voltage Pro product is ABB approved for stringboxes, EVO dataloggers and for some inverter models.
Physical featuresThe Silicon photovoltaic cell is laminated with E.V.A. and a high performance anti-reflective glass for photovoltaic modules. It guarantees the maximum precision in the measurement of irradiance and provides a measurement of the indicative temperature of the photovoltaic modules next to it. It has an anodized aluminum housing for high durability, practical mounting bracket with screw clamp and a UV-resistant cable. This irradiance sensor has two signal outputs in voltage: one for solar irradiance and one for temperature. The solar irradiance signal is temperature compensated; allowing readings that are independent of cell temperature.
CalibrationAll Litemeters Pro are calibrated with our Class A Silicon Reference Cell, itself periodically calibrated by the Dakks accredited ISFH Institute and a HP34410A Multimeter.
Note: the terms irradiance sensor, photovoltaic pyranometer, reference cell and solarimeter are interchangeable. On this site we will use photovoltaic pyranometer. To learn more click here.
Common usesIts reliability and precision make Litemeter Voltage Pro suitable for monitoring medium-sized systems.
