In Melbourne in the late 1950's, CSIRO Division of Meteorological Physics was recognised as a leading research facility in the field of solar and terrestrial radiation. Many advances in solar radiometer design were developed by Dr. Peter Funk while he was at the CSIRO. A range of product licenses including a solarimeter, pyrheliometer and net pyrradiometer was released to local manufacturers for commercialisation. These solar and terrestrial radiation instruments were technically well regarded. Business flourished as new products like the pyrano-albedometer and soil heat flux plate was added to the suite. The Middleton Instruments range of solar products gained rapid acceptance from the market and many instruments were exported to all parts of the world. In the 1980's the BWD group, as part of a company consolidation, purchased Middleton Instruments. Synchrotac Middleton Instruments traded for a number of years until Middleton was acquired by the current owners, Carter-Scott Design, in 1990. Carter-Scott Design applied their product development skills to completely revamp the existing solar radiation product line and added products like the sun photometer and active solar tracking system. Middleton products have maintained their reputation for quality and reliability for over forty years. With the expanded solar radiation line and further innovation to existing products, all Middleton products are now marketed under the Middleton Solar brand.
