The Multiple Wavelength Portable Specular Reflectometer Model 15R-RGB builds on the functionality of the model 15R-USB. It is a portable reflectometer designed for measurements of highly specular flat or curved mirrors for solar power applications. The 15R-RGB is powered by internal rechargeable Nicad batteries that operate for over 15 hours on a charge. An operator can easily take reflectance readings at the rate of 2 to 6 per minute and record the readings to data sets stored in the instrument. A USB port is provided for maintaining and downloading data sets and upgrading the firmware.
The model 15R-RGB adds
the capability to measure reflectance in five broad
wavelength bands from blue to near IR using a white LED
source and selectable filters. In the standard
configuration, a filter wheel selects one of detector
response curves; red, green, blue, white or IR. Also
selectable are five full angle acceptance angles of 4.6,
7, 15, 25 and 46 mrad. These features make the Model
15R-RGB ideal for characterization and monitoring of
quality control in the manufacture and maintenance of
solar mirrors and thermal control surfaces.
