Module Temperature Sensor

Module Temperature Sensor

Module Temperature Sensor

This sensor is designed to attach directly to any solar panel. When placed on the center back side of the panel, it accurately measures the temperature of the panel.

Prior to installation of the PV temperature sensor onto the PV panel, the installation area of the panel back should be thoroughly cleaned. This cleaning will ensure a good bond between sensor and panel and allow for accurate panel temperature readings.

After cleaning, peel off the protective adhesive tape on the temperature sensor and stick it onto the back of the panel. Firmly press the sensor into place.
