MS-60 Pyranometer

The MS-60 is a first class pyranometer (Class B Pyranometer) meeting ISO 9060:2018 Approvals. It is available with a variety of output options which include: MS-60 (analog voltage), MS-60A (4-20mA) or MS-60M (RS485) or the standard MS-60 (mV output). 

All sensors provide a "spectrally flat" response across 285 - 3000 nm, an irradiance range of 0-2000 W/m2 and are IP67 rated.

The MS-60 series features a double dome construction that provides lower offsets and cosine errors. All sensors come with a 2 year calibration interval and can be used with an optional MV-01 ventilator and heater. The MS-60 are available with cables ranging from 10 m to 50 m lengths.

Now available with Smart Sensing Technology, the new MS-60S preserves the high accuracy of the sensor while complying with the various output standards used in the industry. The new Smart signal transducer allows selecting from 4 types of output in one unit (MODBUS 485 RTU, SDI-12, 4-20mA, configurable 0-10mA / 0-1V with external optional 100Ω precision shunt resistor). The new electronics ensure a great benefit for system integrators who work with various industrial interface standards.
