The Apogee SP-700 Albedometer consists of one SP-510 upward-facing pyranometer and one SP-610 downward-facing pyranometer, joined with a spliced cable to allow connection of both sensors to a measurement device.
Apogee Instruments SP-510 and SP-610 pyranometers consist of a thermopile detector, acrylic diffuser (SP-510) or glass window (SP-610), heater, and signal processing circuitry mounted in an anodized aluminum housing. For mounting, we recommend using either the AL-130 Albedometer mounting bracket or the AM-500 Net Radiometer mounting bracket paired with an AM-130 mounting bracket.
Albedo measurements indicate the broadband shortwave reflectivity of materials and are used to monitor bifacial solar panels, understand heat retention in urban and architectural settings, and study climate and weather. Typical applications for pyranometers include shortwave radiation measurement in agricultural, ecological, and hydrological weather networks.
The SP-700-SS includes an in-line IP68 marine-grade stainless-steel cable connector placed 50 cm from the sensor heads for either standard use as a long-cable pigtail sensor, or for use with our microCache Bluetooth Micro Logger.
