Spectrafy is a Canadian manufacturer of state-of-the-art meteorological sensors and systems that finally make it easy and affordable to acquire the highest quality of solar and atmospheric data.
Gone are the days of having to deploy and maintain multiple, highly expensive instruments per site. Spectrafy’s SolarSIM technology allows us to pack a wide array of measurement capabilities into just one or two small, rugged, low-power sensors.
Whether it is broadband or spectral solar irradiance, UV irradiance, PAR, atmospheric aerosols, ozone, precipitable water vapour or temperature, pressure and humidity, Spectrafy’s sensors enable state-of-the-art environmental monitoring within the financial constraints of modern government.
The SolarSIM-D2 represents a remarkable leap forward in the measurement of direct solar irradiance and the atmosphere. By combining simple rugged hardware with ground-breaking software the D2 is able to replace up to seven expensive, high-maintenance instruments at a fraction of the cost.
The SolarSIM-D2 provides accurate measurements of full-range, broadband and spectral direct normal irradiance (DNI) as well as narrow-band irradiances such as direct UV-A, UV-B and PAR. In addition, it measures aerosol optical depths, atmospheric ozone, precipitable water vapour, temperature and pressure – all in one compact, low-maintenance, affordable sensor.
If that weren't enough, the SolarSIM-D2 also offers ultimate flexibility to match your budget and needs. It can be purchased and deployed with any one or more of its measurement capabilities activated, and additional capabilities can be added at any point in the future via a simple software upgrade.
With the SolarSIM-G, Spectrafy’s engineers have taken the SolarSIM technology to the next level, optimising it for the measurement of global solar irradiance.
The SolarSIM-G enables accurate measurement of full-range spectral and broadband GHI (or GTI) as well as narrow-band irradiances such as UV-A, UV-B, UV-E and PAR. Temperature, pressure and humidity are also measured - all within one compact, low-maintenance, low-power sensor.
The ability of the SolarSIM-G to generate so many high-quality datasets makes it a valuable tool for a wide range of stakeholders within the solar, agricultural, meteorological and public health sectors.
Like all of Spectrafy's sensors, the SolarSIM-G is highly flexible. It can be deployed with any one or more of its measurement capabilities activated, with additional capabilities available via a simple software upgrade.
The Spectrafy Cloud is our turn-key database and visualization platform that takes the hassle out of managing meteorological data.
The state-of-the-art meteorological networks now enabled by Spectrafy's sensors generate large and powerful data sets. The Spectrafy Cloud is capable of storing, presenting and exporting all SolarSIM dataflows, and even data from third party sensors, over the internet in real-time, via a clean, intuitive, graphical dashboard.
Your data is secure and controllable with admin-defined user accounts and access levels. With the Spectrafy Cloud, your state-of-the-art data can be immediately disseminated to any relevant stakeholder, as required.
Case Study: CanSIM Network
In 2017, Canada’s Natural Resources Ministry (NRCan) launched the world’s first, real-time, solar spectral and atmospheric measurement network.
Powered by Spectrafy’s innovative spectral sensors and software, the CanSIM network is designed to enable state-of-the-art environmental and photovoltaic analysis today, while also being future proofed for the needs of the future.
The CanSIM network represents a step-change in measurement capability. Previously, only a handful of locations worldwide maintained the measurement capabilities enabled by a single CanSIM station. With the SolarSIM technology, Spectrafy has now made these advanced capabilities routinely deployable.
