Seaward Solar Releases New Irradiance Meter

Seaward Solar has released the Seaward Solar Survey 100, an instrument that combines irradiance measurement with several other features that are designed to enable solar PV and solar thermal contractors to carry out site surveys quickly and easily.

The Seaward Solar Survey 100 uses a precision PV cell sensor for the highly accurate irradiance measurement, displaying results in either Wm-2 or BTU/h/ft2 and making it ideal for both solar PV and solar thermal site installations, according to the company. The unit also incorporates a digital compass, a digital tilt meter and a dual-channel precision thermometer.

These special features enable the user to quickly identify the location where maximum levels of solar power can be collected and accurately measure irradiance, roof pitch, orientation, and both ambient air and PV module temperature, the company says.
