The SEN-SR-SW is a self-powered sensor with a millivolt output and exhibits excellent cosine response. It incorporate a silicon-cell photodiode that measures total shortwave radiation with a sensor housing design
that features a fully potted, domed-shaped head making the sensor fully weatherproof and self-cleaning. Total shortwave radiation is an important
component in determining evapo-transipration rates, energy balance, net radiation as well as monitoring solar power panels.
