The ML-01 sensor is the link between the reference cell and broadband thermopile pyranometer. Compared to the reference sensors it has a proper cosine repose and it is relatively compact, but benefits from the same characteristics as a PV module (Response time, Spectral and temperature response).
The ML – 01 is an industrial grade solar sensor specially made for performance ratio measurements as well as irradiance measurement applications for meteorological, agricultural and environmental studies. The compact dimensions of the sensor body make it easy to integrate with or without the mounting plate. For global horizontal measurement applications, the sensor can be mounted in horizontal position with the standard removable mounting plate with spirit level and leveling feet.
The low output voltage of the sensor can be easily converted to a 4-20mA current or higher voltage using the MS-4.20mA converter. The mV/mA converter can be pre-programmed and optimized within the operating range and is compatible with common measurement equipment.
