The 240-SP-510 is an upward-looking thermopile pyranometer. The 240-SP-610 is a downward-looking thermopile pyranometer. The sensors can be coupled to form an albedometer as shown in first photo.
Product Details

The 240-SP-510-SS Upward-looking Thermopile Pyranometer has an analog output of 0 to 114 mV. The sensor incorporates a blackbody thermopile detector and acrylic diffuser with a rugged, self-cleaning sensor housing design.

The 240-SP-610-SS Downward-Looking Thermopile Pyranometer has an analog output range of 0 to 300 mV. The sensor incorporates a blackbody thermopile detector and flat glass window with a rugged housing design.

These sensors can also be coupled to form an albedometer using the 240-AL-130 Albedometer Mounting Bracket.

Typical applications include shortwave radiation measurement in agricultural, ecological, and hydrological weather networks. Sensors are also used to optimize photovoltaic systems.

Each sensor includes an IP68 marine-grade stainless-steel cable connector 30 cm from head to simplify sensor removal and replacement for maintenance and recalibration.
