Model 094 Solar Radiation Sensor

Met One Instruments, Inc.’s 094 is a new class of solar sensor. Packing ISO 9060 Second Class performance at the price of a silicon photodiode sensor, the Model 094 pyranometer makes reliable, bankable data more affordable then ever. It is a perfect solution for applications from solar prospecting, to utility grade reference systems, to general meteorology.

The Model 094 fully complies with the requirements of ISO 9060 and the World Meteorological Organization’s requirements for solar measurements, as an ISO Second Class and WMO Moderate Quality sensor. This provides accurate, bankable data for all applications where accuracy matters.
