Product details

The sensor features a silicon photovoltaic detector mounted in a fully cosine-corrected miniature head. Colored glass filters are used to tailor the silicon photodiode response to the desired quantum response and an interference filter is used to provide a sharp cutoff at 700 nm.

The Quantum Solar Sensor is mounted on a leveling base and is available with either a flat base or plug-in mount to fit the RainWise Quadpod or Monopod mounting systems. It is manufactured of high stability silicon (detector), aluminum, stainless steel and PVC (base for RainWise Mount).

The RainWise Quantum Solar Sensor is guaranteed by the manufacturer, Licor, for one year. It is important to plan for recalibration of the instrument on an annual basis. Recalibration is not covered under the unit’s warranty.
