Amprobe SOLAR-100 Solar Power Meter
Use Beha-Amprobe’s SOLAR-100 to measure the solar output of solar systems.
The SOLAR-100 consists of a flexible sensor attached to a meter by a coiled, extendable cable. It measures both solar power and transmission up to 2000w/mΩ/634BTU/(ft²xh) and includes two modes:
- Power Mode – measures the power per unit area of incident solar radiation
- Transmission Mode – calculates the solar power transmission percentage of the material
Beha-Amprobe’s SOLAR-100 is portable, lightweight and easy to use. It can be used in many different applications, including window performance (for example calculation and verification of heating/heat reduction caused by direct sunlight), for solar radiation measurements, solar power research and by physics/optical labs, in meteorology or agricultural applications.
This meter includes several additional features including selectable measurement units, a data hold function and MAX/MIN mode.
