  • Determine site orientation with the Fluke Solar Irradiance

    Use the integrated compass on the Fluke IRR1-SOL Irradiance Meter to measure and document roof or site orientation.

    + First perform irradiance, temperature and inclination measurements with the meter turned on and aligned with the panel.

    + If the tilt is above 20 degrees, any compass reading will be inaccurate. The metal in the panel or other surrounding metal objects will also affect the compass reading. This is why another step is necessary to verify the direction.

    + Position the meter away from the panel and any other metal objects and with the tip of the meter facing in the same direction as the panel.

    + Confirm your compass reading.

  • Find Inclination of a Panel with the Fluke Solar Irradiance Meter

    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.

  • Photovoltaic System Measurements with the Fluke Solar Irradiance Meter

    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.

  • How to measure irradiance with the Fluke Solar 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.
