Energy & Light Sensors

CWi Technical Ltd select sensors for inclusion in their systems based on quality, accuracy and reliability. If a sensor is in our list, it means we have the utmost confidence in its performance and reliability, and it fits the quality criteria for inclusion in datashare.

ES2

The ES2 energy sensor is designed for solar energy studies in unobstructed daylight. The ES2 has high stability and low temperature coefficient silicon photodiodes, has a self cleaning dome and a good cosine response with an infinity-error correction ring. There is an internal calibration adjuster for annual calibration.

The sensor can be purchased with optional leveling mounts. It is usually mounted in the horizontal for most solar insolation studies, and the readings then represent the irradiance of a horizontal surface. Output is in mV which is converted linearly to kW/m2
