:: Product Information



The CNR2 features a unique design with separate outputs for short-wave (solar) and long-wave (atmospheric and terrestrial) radiation. The CNR2 fits in the Kipp & Zonen product line between the single output NR-LITE and the four-component CNR1. The glass domes and silicon windows protect the thermopile detectors from environmental factors, minimize the effects of wind and rain on measurements, and are easy to clean.


Kipp & Zonen's CNR2 Net Radiometer measures the energy balance between incoming short-wave and long-wave infrared radiation versus surface-reflected short-wave and outgoing long-wave infrared radiation. It consists of a pyranometer and pyrgeometer pair that face upward and a complementary pair that face downward. The pyranometers and pyrgeometers measure short-wave and far infrared radiation, respectively. Field-of-view is 180 degrees for the upper pyranometer, and 150 degrees for the lower pyranometer. Both upper and lower pyrgeometers provide a 150-degree field-of-view. The CNR2 uses drying cartridges to prevent condensation. Please note that the CNR2 is not compatible with our CR200-series dataloggers.
