The Impact of Dew, Frost, and Soiling on Solar Radiation Monitoring

A new exclusive AZoSensors webinar, sponsored by OTT HydroMet, has just been announced for Thursday 29 September - titled: The Impact of Dew, Frost, and Soiling on Solar Radiation Monitoring – and Ways to Mitigate it 

About this webinar

Dew, frost, and soiling on the optical dome all have a significant impact on the measurement quality of solar radiation monitoring instruments (errors can reach up to 30-40%).

Luckily, there are ways to deal with this: ventilation and heating. 

To mitigate false readings, OTT HydroMet offers an external ventilation and heating unit for its pyranometers, pyrgeometers, and UV radiometers; the Kipp & Zonen CVF4. Its latest pyranometer innovation even comes with built-in dew prevention; the Kipp & Zonen SMP12.

Join this webinar and discover how to mitigate The Impact of Dew, Frost, and Soiling on Solar Radiation Monitoring.
