Young 03002), global solar radiation (Pyranometer, Kipp & Zonen, CMP3) and soil water volumetric content (TDR, Campbell Sci., CS616), all connected to a datalogger (Campbell Sci.
To determine the transmissivity of solar radiation, incident global radiation was measured throughout the production cycle of soybean with a pyranometer coupled to a datalogger (LICOR 1400), measuring from 10:00 am until 12:00 noon.

The sight glasses, as well as the pyranometer, were parallelly installed to the collector.
The instantaneous solar radiation was measured by a digital pyranometer, with a cloudless sky, just after noon.
In each test the average solar radiation through a Pyranometer CM3 which has a sensitivity of 1035 [micro]V/W[m.sup.-2], water, air and glass temperature inside the distiller and the amount of distilled water with an analogous balance Sartorius model BP211 D of resolution 0.1 mg, during 7 hours of exposure of system to solar radiation, was measured.
The system is comprised of flat plate solar collectors, an air circulation fan, air valves, a multimeter and a pyranometer, and some auxiliary and measurement devices.
Solar irradiation is used to measure at regular intervals by a Pyranometer (TES-1333) the instantaneous manually for the collector inclination of 21[degree].
Solar radiation (SR), measured by the pyranometer at Dead Sea hydrometeorological buoy, shows an essential decrease in measured SR during the passage of frontal clouds accompanied by dust pollution.
G and T are measured using a solar pyranometer sensor and a temperature sensor, respectively, as shown in Figure 4.
A calibrated pyranometer (temperature-compensated detector) with a cosine response and a spectral range of 285 to 2800 nm is used to scan the window area on a scanning grid of a maximum spacing of 0.15 m (0.5 ft) (NFRC 2010).
