CMP22

The CMP22 has all the features of CMP21 but uses very high quality quartz domes for a wider spectral range, improved directional response, and reduced thermal offsets. Because of the high optical quality of these domes the directional error is reduced below 5 W/m². Kipp & Zonen is confident that CMP22 is the best pyranometer currently available.

Key features

  • High-end product
  • Negligible thermal gradient zero-offset
  • 5 year warranty (*)

A waterproof socket is fitted for the signature yellow signal cable, which is available in a range of lengths pre-wired to the waterproof plug.

The integral bubble level is raised to the top of the housing and can be viewed without removing the redesigned snap-on sun shield, which also covers the connector. The drying cartridge is now a screw-in type that can be simply removed using a coin, for changing the desiccant that is supplied in convenient refill packets.

The Pyranometer does not require any power, it supplies a low voltage of 0-20mV in relation to the amount of incoming radiation. When a higher voltage level or a 4-20mA signal is required, the AMPBOX is the perfect solution.

(*) This product will need to be registered by the end-user within 6 months of purchase to activate the 5 year warranty.
