The MS-60 is a ISO 9060:2018 Class B (First class) pyranometer with analog output and improved performance. The new double dome construction provides lower offsets and cosine errors. The MS-60A and MS-60M provide a digital output (4-20mA or Modbus 485 RTU). The MS-60/60A/60M can be used with the optional MV-01 ventilator / heater.

The MS-60 pyranometers are manufactured in a consistent way followed by strict quality inspection and performance evaluation. EKO provides a unique calibration compliant to the international standards defined by ISO/IEC17025/9847. The sensor has a 5 year warranty with a 2 year re-calibration interval recommended and it is no longer necessary to change the desiccant.
