    What is a Radiation Sensor?

    Radiation sensors, often referred to as radiometric sensors or radiological detectors, play a vital role in various fields, ranging from nuclear energy to environmental monitoring. These sensors are designed to detect and measure different forms of radiation, including electromagnetic radiation like light and X-rays, as well as particle radiation such as alpha particles, beta particles, and gamma rays.

    Radiation Sensor Price List

    Solar radiation is radiant energy emitted by the sun from a nuclear fusion reaction that creates electromagnetic energy. The spectrum of solar radiation is close to that of a black body with a temperature of about 5800 K. About half of the radiation is in the visible short-wave part of the electromagnetic spectrum. The other half is mostly in the near-infrared part, with some in the ultraviolet part of the spectrum.

    Solar Radiation Sensor vs. PAR Sensor

    Solar radiation sensor is designed on basis of silicon-cell principle. It is mainly used for measuring solar radiation within 300-1100nm wavelength. If the sensing face is downwards, it can test the reflected radiation and solar radiation on the incident to the inclined plane. PAR sensor is mainly used for measuring solar radiation within 400-700nm wavelength. It is easy installation and can work continuously in all weathers. When there is sunlight, voltage output proportional to incident light intensity will be generated by the silicon-photo detector in the sensor. 

    Radiation Sensor Working Principle

    Radiation sensor works by measuring the number of small units of light, known as photons that impact a physical or chemical device located within the instrument. Solar radiation sensors are typically not powered due to the fact that the components located in the device either are influenced by or react to solar radiation in a direct manner.

    Radiation Sensor Buying Guide

    Radiation sensor adopts photoelectric principle and can be used to measure the total radiation value under sunlight. The radiation sensor uses high-precision photosensitive elements, wide spectrum absorption, high absorption in the full spectrum range, and good stability. A dust cover with a light transmittance of up to 95% is installed outside the sensing element, and the dust cover is specially treated to reduce dust adsorption can effectively prevent environmental factors from interfering with internal components, and can more accurately measure solar radiation.
