The European Solar Test Installation developed the ESTI sensor, a low-cost solar irradiance measuring device which in a short time period has become a well known device for monitoring and evaluation of PV installations and a new standard for PV power plant monitoring systems. To further lower the cost of a monitoring system, and to increase performance, ESTI proposed a lowest-cost system, where all necessary electronics is laminated within the sensor. The result of this effort is the ESTI sensor 2, a unique new irradiance measurement and logging system.
