410-Solar Visible / NIR Portable Reflectometer
The 410-Solar is a battery operated portable reflectometer, the ideal tool for field solar reflectance, solar absorbtance measurements and mirror assessment. Quickly and accurately collects solar reflectivity data necessary to calculate solar reflectance index (SRI) values for cool roofing and green building LEED certification. The SOC410-Solar conforms to ASTM E903, the standard test method for solar absorptance, reflectance, and transmittance of materials.
Based on a modified integrating sphere, it measures total reflectance at seven sub-bands in the 300-2500nm spectral regions. Total, diffuse, and specular reflectance is reported for the data at 20 degrees incidence. A total of twenty-one data points are produced during a single data acquisition cycle. The signal intensity is normalized against an internal standard. To perform measurements just press the device against the surface to be tested then pull the trigger.
