Daylight and Solar Radiation Monitoring Station

Manufacturer: LI-COR BIOSCIENCES UK LTD
Model: Li-210sl Photometric Sensor

The LI-210 Photometric Sensor utilizes a filtered silicon photodiode to provide a spectral response that matches the CIE curve within ± 5% with 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.

Some of the applications for the LI-210 Photometric Sensor include interior and industrial lighting, outdoor illuminance, passive solar energy, architecture and lighting models, illumination engineering, and biological sciences that require illuminance measurements. The LI-210 is a research grade photometric sensor that is very reasonably priced.
