EKO Instruments unique Solar Monitoring Station (SMS) is the primary reference to collect high quality solar irradiance data on-site. The innovative turn-key system provides all fundamental solar radiation and meteorological parameters for PV site evaluation, performance monitoring and cell optimizing.


The SMS is factory composed, but can be freely configured to meet all client- and market-specific demands. It is the aim of EKO Instruments to help clients get ahead by developing turn-keyresearch solutions and services for the Photovoltaic and Meteorological markets. With our high level of know-how and latest technologies used in our Photovoltaic measuring equipment and Solar Radiation Sensors we aim to extend clients solar research capabilities in function, accuracy and quality.


In combination with a solar power battery system it gives a perfect solution for rich sunny sites where grid power is absent but electrical power is required to power the SMS. Driven by solar power two high efficiency PV panels (Total 160 Wp) and back-up batteries provide electrical power to the SMS during daytime and nighttime and extend the operation for several days. When the back-up battery pack gets exhausted the system will shut down in a controlled manner and will automatically recover when the batteries are recharged. The SPS-01 is perfectly suited to be combined with the SMS or STR-Sun trackers powerd by DC.


The Solar Monitoring Station is a plug and play system. All systems are set-up and pre-programmed according to clients needs and wishes. The diagram below summarizes the possible options for composition of the solar monitoring station, based on application and desired parameters.
