Global radiation sensor with standard output 4..20mA


  • registration of the global radiation of the sun
  • maximum photo sensitiveness with 850nm (silicon)
  • internal temperature and dark current compensation
     Order number
  • 10197

Determination of the global radiation of the sun as meteorological climatic parameters in Watts per square meter. As sensor element a surface photodiode is used made of silicon. An internal signal processor takes over the characteristic linearization, as well as the temperature and dark current compensation. 
According to standard it is fastened on an aluminium cross beam in 2 m height. The cross beam can fastened to the TOSS GmbH available 2 m or. 10 m mast plant, in addition, to each mast made available by the user.
The spatial adjustment should take place with the help of a put on leveling indicator or spirit level horizontal, sensor cathedral upward.
With the attachment of the sensor it is to be noted that he may not be shaded by objects of the environment. Therefore the sensor on a cross beam should be attached in south direction.

Fields of application
Employment in climatic data registration, laboratory and environmental technology, automatic control engineering, agriculture in greenhouses. The sensor assigned e.g. for the evaluation of the efficiency of solar energy plants ( => correlation analysis global radiation - electric power, => energy module, stock No.: 30420), in the agriculture for evaporation models => see Waterbalance, order No.: 30440 ) and e.g. for the determination of the duration of sunshine.
