LI-COR LI-1800, Prede PGS-100, and EKO MS-700 Spectroradiometers are collecting spectral data from approx. 300 to 1100nm, every 1 or 5 minutes during the day.
The AOCS was generating spectral data from 300 to 4000nm, every 60 seconds when the AOCS parameter is less than 0.25.
LI-1800 Global Horizontal data is available from 6/13/2006 to 7/10/2008 and 2/15/2012 to Present.
LI-1800 Global 40-South data is available from 1/24/2001 to 6/13/2006 and 7/10/2008 to 2/15/2012.
LI-1800 Direct Normal data is available from 4/30/2001 to 8/3/2003.
AOCS Direct Normal data is available from 10/19/2001 to 9/30/2008.
PGS-100 Direct Normal data is available from 08/06/2008 to Present.
OTF MS-700 Global 40-South data is available from 08/20/2008 to Present.
FTP access to data is available on request for NREL employees only, please contact Afshin Andreas.
Global Horizontal/40-South LI-1800 (S/N PRS-456) information:
The instrument has 6nm spectral bandwidth and the detector is not temperature controlled.
The usable spectral range of the instrument is 300 to 1000nm.
The instrument was calibrated against NIST Standard of Spectral Irradiance F655 on April 15, 2013.
Measurements are made using the 1800-10 Quartz Fiber Optic Probe (w/o remote cosine receptor) and the fiber end is inserted into a 5o view limiting tube (with window), which is mounted on a Sci-Tec tracker.
Direct Normal Prede PGS-100 (S/N S08029 or S09032) information:
The instrument has 3.6nm spectral bandwidth and the detector is maintained at 35oC.
The usable spectral range of the instrument is 350 to 1050nm.
The instrument was calibrated outdoors against the NIST traceable LI-1800 PRS-102 on April 26, 2013.
