The MS-80M, manufactured by EKO Instruments, is an innovative, next-generation ISO 9060 Class A spectrally flat and fast-response (secondary standard) pyranometer inspired by the combination of latest technologies and state-of-the-art thermopile sensor with an unprecedented, low zero-offset behavior; fast sensor response; Modbus RTU 485 output; and a five-year warranty and recalibration interval.
The MS-80M features a compact design with internal desiccation, single dome, isolated thermopile detector, quartz diffusor, immunity to offsets, ultra-low temperature dependency, and exceptional non-linearity characteristics. EKO instruments is the only ISO 17025 accredited pyranometer manufacturer in the world, enabling highest-quality calibration, compliant to international standards (ISO/IEC 17025/9847).
