Model ASI-16 Basic - All Sky Imager Camera System
The ASI-16 Basic All Sky Imager is an automatic full sky camera system with a 180° field of view. It provides high-resolution images, both as pre-scheduled network stored JPGs and as a video live stream. The ASI-16 can take clear full hemispheric pictures of the sky, even under full sunlight conditions.
The 5MP camera developed by Schreder CMS is provided by EKO world-wide.
With the optional Find Clouds software, cloud coverage and cloud classification can be analyzed for photovoltaic evaluation applications.Cloud base height can be measured with two ASI-16 cameras and the optional Cloud Base Height (CBH) software. The CBH software allows for the evaluation of cloud height in real time. A stereoscopic method is applied to process time synchronized images of two sky imagers and the local data (latitude, longitude, and elevation).
The Basic model of the ASI-16 does not include an integrated ventilator and heater system.
