For use where the highest measurement accuracy is required, secondary standard is the highest category in the ISO 9060 classification system
The SR20 measures the solar radiation received by a plane surface, in W/m2, from a 180 degree field of view angle. Released in February 2013 , it enables you to attain the highest measurement accuracy and excels in demanding applications.
In order to improve overall measurement accuracy, Hukseflux effectively targeted two major sources of measurement uncertainty: calibration and "zero offset a".
The initial calibration uncertainty is reduced to less than 1.2 %, an improvement of 15% relative to competing models.
The "zero offset a" specification of SR20 is 5 W/m2 unventilated. Competing models state 12 W/m2 unventilated and 7 W/m2 ventilated.
