The new standard in global irradiance data
The SolarSIM-G is a versatile device that can provide the function of a pyranometer and multiple spectroradiometers, all in one. As a result the SolarSIM-G can provide an unparalleled quantity and quality of data – over 4,000 data points per time stamp! Your SolarSIM-G can be configured to deliver any or all of the following:
Global Horizontal (or tilted) Irradiance (GHI/GTI)
The SolarSIM-G provides an accurate measurement of global irradiance (horizontal or tilted), under any sky conditions, over the complete 280-4000nm spectral range. The SolarSIM-G can also be configured to provide GHI/GTI over any custom spectral range – great for quantifying useable fractions for PV, PAR values or UV doses.
Global Spectral Irradiance
The SolarSIM-G is capable of resolving the global solar spectral irradiance (horizontal or tilted), under any sky conditions, over the complete spectral range of 280 – 4000nm, with 1nm resolution. If you don’t need full-range, no problem. The SolarSIM-G can also be configured for just the 280-1200nm range.
The SolarSIM-G also provides accurate measurements of the ambient temperature, pressure and humidity.
Intuitive and easy to use
The SolarSIM-G software features a windows-based GUI that provides user with easy visualization of all of the SolarSIM-G’s data streams. Features include:
- Automatic SolarSIM detection.
- Visualisation of instantaneous spectral irradiance.
- Continuously updating daily plots of GHI, ambient temperature, humidity and pressure.
- Visualisation of raw optical channel outputs.
- Internal humidity monitor.
- Customised data acquisition rates for different data streams.
By PC, data logger or over the internet – we’ve got you covered
The SolarSIM offers unparalleled connectivity options, suitable for any use case scenario.
With the SolarSIM Combox, users can get their SolarSIM-G operating straight out of the box via a direct connection to your PC or laptop.
Serial over Internet
The SolarSIM-G can be connected to a networked PC/server via a suitable serial-over-ethernet device.
The SolarSIM-G can be connected to RS485 capable dataloggers, via a free RS485 port. Spectrafy can provide the commands required for the data logger to request data from the SolarSIM-G.
