It’s Pyranometer Calibration Season

LI-COR encourages our customers to return their LI-200/R Pyranometer Sensors for recalibration (suggested every 2 years after field deployment) between the months of March and September. Why? Because pyranometer sensors need to be calibrated outdoors in natural sunlight in order to construct an accurate relationship between the output of each sensor and incoming solar radiation. During LI-COR’s 40+ years of manufacturing and calibrating pyranometers, we have found that best results are obtained during the summer months when sensors can be…
