CMP11 Albedometer Kit

The CMP11 Albedometer Kit is a step up in performance from the CMP6 kit and is recommended for scientific applications, for which accuracy needs to be according to the highest standards.

This ISO 9060:1990 Secondary Standard albedometer kit is ideal to define the ratio of irradiance reflected to the irradiance received by a surface (albedo). This results in a scale from 0 (no reflection) to 1 (total reflection).


By using two separate pyranometers with a mounting fixture (plate and rod) and glare screen for the lower pyranometer there is a choice of configurations available.

The CMB1 mounting bracket can be used to fix the rod to a pole or wall.

If the CMF1 mounting fixture is replaced by the CMF4 model, the CVF4 ventilation unit can be used with the upper and/or lower pyranometers. For the lower CVF4 a special glare screen is available.

Its good quality and cost-effectiveness make the CMP6 albedometer kit ideal for meteorology, hydrology and agricultural applications.
