The MS-80, manufactured by EKO Instruments, is an innovative, next-generation 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; and a five-year warranty and recalibration interval.
The MS-80 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).
For a similar pyranometer with RS-485 Modbus communication, refer to the MS-80M.
