Key features

  • RS-485 Modbus® RTU interface
  • 0 – 1V or 4-20mA output
  • 5 year warranty (*)
  • Active temperature correction from -40°C to +80°C

The wide and low power supply range from 5-30 VDC makes integration in meteorological stations easy. The SMP is protected against over voltage, reversed polarity and short circuiting. Because all SMPs have identical sensitivity and connections, exchanging instruments during recalibration is easy.

PC Software for data logging, display of data and Modbus® address setting is provided as standard.

SMP3 measures global solar radiation on a horizontal plane. When tilted with the same angle as a PV panel it measures the tilted global radiation, for PV module efficiency calculations.

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