Pyranometer Calibration Season Reminder

Pyranometer Calibration Season Reminder

The LI-200 Pyranometer Calibration schedule will be reaching its annual suspension on October 1st, 2014 and continuing through until February 28th, 2015.

LI-COR encourages our customers to return their LI-200 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…
