For pyranometers, enable the parameter according to the measurement type. In addition, you need to select the pyranometer manufacturer. For example, to use EKO MS series pyranometer for GHI measurements, enable GHI_1 or GHI_2 and PYRANO_EKO.
All pyranometers in the weather station must be from the same manufacturer.
For EKO MS Series sensors, you need to set the sensor Modbus address in the station parameters.
