LI-200R Pyranometer Performs Well in NREL Solar Radiation Assessment Tests

LI-200R Pyranometer Performs Well in NREL Solar Radiation Assessment Tests

Prior to the official product launch, LI-COR provided the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) with a set of LI-200R Pyranometers for their long-term solar radiation measurement project. The LI-200R is based on the proven LI-200 Pyranometer, but with a more robust cable and an improved seal against water vapor. The sensor is also detachable from the base/cable, simplifying installation and removal. Click here for a detailed comparison between the old and new sensor designs. 

NREL is a US government…

It’s Pyranometer Calibration Season

It’s Pyranometer Calibration Season

The LI-200 Pyranometer Calibration schedule will be reaching its annual suspension on October 1st, 2011 and continuing through until February 28th, 2012.

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…
