    For use with Vantage Pro, and Vantage Pro2. (Already included with Vantage Pro Plus and Vantage Pro2 Plus.)

    Measures solar radiation and is required (along with an anemometer and a temperature/humidity sensor) if you wish to monitor evapotranspiration.

    Diffuser element and housing are carefully designed for accurate cosine response. Silicon photo diode provides good match to solar spectrum. Two-piece housing minimizes radiation heating, allows convection cooling of the sensor, and prevents the trapping of water or dust. Includes built-in level and 2' (0.6 m) cable.

    Available for sale in the United States and Canada only.

    • Q:

      If the Davis Vantage Pro II is connected to this solar radiation sensor, can the data be logged and integrated alongside other data collected by the Davis Vantage Pro II? If no, is there a product that can?

        A:

        Data from the solar radiation sensor can be collected and logged in the Vantage Pro 2.

    • Q:

      Can the sensor tie into an automated shading system?

        A:

        No, you would need to use the propper sensor for the automatic shading system that you are currently using. This unit is designed to monitor evapotranspiration.

    • Q:

      Is there any solar radiation sensor in your products that can be used independently (without your data logger)?

    • Q:

      Can this sensor be used independently of the VantagePro2. If so, what is the type of signal output from the sensor (Digital, analog, output ranges)?

    • Q:

      I would like to get a confirmation that this pyranometer is cosine corrected.

      Thanks

        A:

        Per the specifications here is the Cosine Response:

        Percent of Reading: ±3% (0° to ±70° incident angle); ±10% (±70° to ±85° incident angle)
        Percent of Full Scale: ±2% (0° to ±90°)

    • Q:

      Are there altitude limitations with this product?
      Asked on 12/15/2009 by Barbara from Durango, CO

      1 answer

      • STAFF EXPERT

        A:

        The altitude itself will not affect the readings. The only thing to take into consideration is that the higher the altitude, the closer the sun is which could affect certain readings, but not dramatically.
