CMP22 Global Horizontal (tracker) W/m2 11/03/2010 04/24/2012 090071 101.97 W/m2/mV
06/22/2012 - 090072 110.18 W/m2/mV
Total Hemispheric shortwave irradiance as measured by a Kipp & Zonen Model CMP22. The body temperature in degrees C is also measured using a PT100.
CMP22 Global Horizontal (platform) W/m2 11/03/2010 05/16/2012 090072 110.79 W/m2/mV
05/16/2012 - 090071 102.06 W/m2/mV
Total Hemispheric shortwave irradiance as measured by a Kipp & Zonen Model CMP22. The body temperature in degrees C is also measured using a PT100.
CHP1 Direct Normal W/m2 11/03/2010 - 090096 129.07 W/m2/mV
Direct (Beam) shortwave irradiance as measured by a Kipp & Zonen Model CHP1 mounted in an automatic sun-following tracker model SOLYS2. The CHP1 body temperature in degrees C is also measured using a PT100.
8-48 Diffuse Horizontal W/m2 11/03/2010 - 35753 107.40 W/m2/mV
Diffuse (Sky) shortwave irradiance measured by an Eppley Black & White Pyranometer mounted under the shading ball of an automatic sun-following tracker model SOLYS2.
HMP45C Dry Bulb Temperature and Relative Humidity oC
%
02/17/2011 - - 0.1 oC/mV-40oC
0.1 %/mV
Outside air temperature and relative humidity inside in a naturally aspirated radiation shield mounted approx. 5 feet above ground level.
3001 Wind Speed and Wind Direction m/s 02/17/2011 - - 0.75 m/s/Hz+0.2m/s
355 o/mV
Measured by a RM Young 3-cup anemometer and vane mounted 10 meters above ground level on tower. The peak wind speed is also recorded, which is the maximum 1-sec anemometer reading during the 1-minute interval.
CS105 Station Pressure mBar 02/18/2011 - - 0.184 mBar/mV+600mBar
The station pressure is measured by a Vaisala sensor mounted inside weatherproof housing.
- CR1000 Battery Voltage VDC 1/14/2011 - - -
The CR1000 Battery powers the datalogger and cell modem, it is charged by the power supply battery.
- CR1000 Temperature oC 1/14/2011 - - -
Temperature of CR1000 datalogger panel. Logger is mounted inside weatherproof enclosure.
Notes:
  • Data Sample rate is every 1 second with 1-minute average output.
  • The CR1000 is a table based operating system, data is converted from table to array format after data collection, also any non-numeric values are converted to -99999.
