Overview

AUTHORIZED DISTRIBUTOR
Solar Irradiance Meter by Test Products International
Solar Power Test Meter

The TPI 510 is an easy to use, solar irradiance meter for measurement of not only solar radiation, but all measureable light sources including all visible light. The TPI Solar Meter is state of the art and easy to use. It is designed to measure solar power in W/m2 or BTU (ft2*h).

Features

  • Measure solar radiation (irradiance)
  • Displays results in W/m2 or BTU
  • 0 to 1999 W/m2 (0 to 634 BTU) range
  • Min / Max and Data hold functions
  • Convenient, no need to adjust, data displayed clearly
  • Measurable light sources, including all visible light
  • Overload display "OL" when measurement is out of range
  • Select either W/m2 or BTU / (ft2*h) units

Applications

  • Use to find the optimal angle of inclination for installing solar panels
  • Measure light intensity through windows
  • Determine the effectiveness of solar film / window tint
  • Suitable for measuring the effectiveness of solar film
  • Car windows light intensity measurement
  • Optimal incident angle for solar panels
  • Measurement of the sun’s transmission through transparent and film glass

Model 510 Test Procedures

Measuring your car headlights:

Turn the car headlights on. Turn on the 510 solar meter, and “00.0” appears on the screen. Put the 510 down close to the headlights. Switch between high beam and low beam, and the light intensity values appear on the display. Test both the right and left headlights and write the values down for reference. (Refer to Picture 1)


Measure the effect of solar insulation of your vehicle’s windows:

Press the Power button to turn the 510 solar meter on and “00.0” appears on the screen. Aim the 510 at the sun holding it close to a window and the intensity value appears on the display. Open the window and aim the device at the sun. Compare the value against that acquired when the window is closed to understand the efficiency of the window’s solar film. (Refer to Picture 1)


NOTE:When the light sensor cover is not attached “CAP” is indicated. Make sure that it is attached. If performing the zero adjustment after powering on, several digits may not disappear. In this case, perform the zero adjustment again.


Measure the solar insulation effect of your house's windows:

Close the window. Press the Power button on your 510 solar meter, and “00.0” comes up on the screen. Put the device close to the window and aim it at the sun. Compare the value against that acquired when the window is open and the device is placed at the same position, in order to understand the window’s heat efficiency.
