The Fluke IRR1-SOL Irradiance Meter has a built-in inclination sensor that lets you know the roof or solar panel tilt when surveying, installing or adjusting the installation.

+ Simply place the Irradiance Meter directly onto the solar panel to get accurate tilt.

+ For surfaces of rooftops with inclinations different than 0°, place the meter on the ground and push the ZERO button for 2 seconds to reset the angle.

+ Then, measure the true inclination of the solar panel.

he IRR1 irradiance meter is the perfect tool to conduct comprehensive tests and measurements on photovoltaic systems. It provides four key measurements all in one tool: irradiance, temperature, tilt, and compass degree.

Irradiation is a critical metric to consider when conducting a survey or inspection of a solar installation.

1. IRRADIANCE: The Fluke IRR1 irradiance meter instantaneously measures solar irradiance up to 1400 watts per square meter. In addition to irradiance, solar professionals need to measure the temperature of the surfaces of a photovoltaic panel.

+ TEMPERATURE: The Fluke irradiance meter comes with an integrated temperature sensor that allows users to measure the top of a solar panel, simply by placing the unit on the surface. To measure the temperature of the back of the panel, the Fluke Irradiance Meter comes with an attachable, external probe.

+ TILT: Tilt angle of a solar panel is important to maximize efficiency. Identify the ideal inclination of a panel by enabling the tilt function. For scenarios where the rooftop is not level, use the Zero function to calculate the real tilt.

+ COMPASS DEGREE: The location and direction of a panel determines the amount of irradiation absorbed. Get the direction of the panel in degrees by using the compass function on the IRR1 irradiance meter.

Even if a solar or photovoltaic system is installed correctly, it may not be producing the specified amount of power. Determine the performance of a solar panel with the Fluke IRR1-SOL Irradiance Meter.

+ Simply place the Fluke irradiance meter directly onto the solar panel.

+ The meter will instantly and precisely display the watt per square meter measurement.

+ The irradiance meter makes it easy to ensure you’re getting the optimum power from your system and also makes it simple to report and document.

+ The irradiance meter also includes a temperature sensor, compass and inclination sensor.

Every time you dock your gas detectors, you gain important insights into how you’re using your devices. Getting data is the easy part but what can you do with it ? 

A few weeks ago, we presented a webinar and learnt how using data to predict and prevent future incidents is smarter than ever with the Industrial Scientific tools for advanced analytics and automated reporting.

During this webinar, we gave you a preview of how data can work for you:
Collection and visualisation
Custom charts
Automated reports
