Is the CS241 recommended for use at the back or the front of the bifacial module?

Campbell Scientific recommends using the CS241 at the back of the bifacial module. Front-of-module temperature is not recommended because the temperature sensor itself will heat with direct exposure to the sun and thus not be at the same temperature as the module. Also, considering effective irradiance, front-of-module installation would block more effective irradiance from hitting the photovoltaic (PV) module and potentially negatively impact the module’s performance.
