SE SOLAR REFLECT is a complete low weight system ready for deployment on a UAV, handheld or other deployment for measuring solar reflectance in the field.
The heart of the system is a Raspberry Pi version 3 equipped with 2 sub miniature STS fiber optic spectrometers. One STS is equipped with a fiber optic cosine corrector for measuring solar irradiance, the other is equipped with a fiber optic collimating lens for targeting plants, soils or other samples.
The RP-3 comes with UP-DOWN software installed on a 42 GB micro SD card. The software interfaces by WIFI to any device with a browser, Easy to use software lets you set operating parameters, store a set of initial reference spectra, calculates %R and stores data file files to the SD card.
A 3000 mAH rechargeable battery, Oceanview software for using the system on a desktop PC, a white reflectance standard, and a RP kit with cables, case and other accessories completes the lit.
STS is a really small spectrometer, grating based, USB with an advanced CMOS 1024 element detector array, 350-800nm. STS-UV or STS-NIR systems can be substituted.
Compact– actual size is 40 x 42 x 24 mm
- Powerful – high signal-to-noise (>1500:1) and dynamic range (4600:1) performance
