Solar Radiation Luminosity Sensor

The RainWise Luminosity Sensor is a photometric sensor designed for measurements of lighting conditions when the eye is the primary receiver. Applications include measurement of light in work areas, and from television screens.

Product Support & Documentation

Product details

The sensor uses a filtered silicon photodiode to provide a spectral response that matches the CIE curve within +5% under most light sources. This photodiode and filter combination is placed within a fully cosine-corrected sensor head to provide the proper response to radiation at various angles of incidence.

The Luminosity 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.
