Knight Optical has successfully launched a range of Stock Optical Domes for use in Pyronometers. Pyranometer/pyrgeometer are used for measuring solar irradiance. Typical applications being to understand where insulation needs to be within a building, climate studies and solar monitoring systems. A dome is essentially a window that has two parallel curves faces. Domes are used to shield the thermopile/ sensor used for making the measurements within a Pyranometer. Our domes are polished to high standards having good form error and high clarity with excellent transmission in the UV, NIR and FarIR spectrums allowing for accurate measurement. Capabilities: Domes are readily mountable, optically clear and manufactured to a high standard. Available from 5mm to 200mm in diameter and 0.25 to 10mm in thickness offering high transmission and extreme toughness for harsh environments. For more information read PDF
