Protection during transport, installation and removal
We recommend to use DP01 during initial transport and installation at the measurement site. After that DP01 can be stored. It is used again, typically every 2 years, when the pyranometer is removed and sent to an external laboratory for calibration.
Using DP01 is easy. The protector is mounted with a double snap fit connection to the pyranometer. To remove the DP01 press both sides of the protector, see image.
We recommend to keep DP01 on the pyranometer whenever the dome could potentially make contact with a hard object. Please do not forget to remove DP01 before you start measuring.
Specially designed for SR15 and SR30 pyranometers
The DP01 is specially designed for SR15 and SR30 pyranometers. To keep the DP01 and the sunscreen together during transport, the sunscreen can be installed on top of the DP01. Check if DP01 is installed correctly by pulling it gently, before installing the sunscreen on top.
