As an increasing number of home and businessowners are making the switch to solar energy, it is important to monitor and maintain these intricate systems. Pressure and temperature calibration, for specific equipment used in the solar energy industry, is essential in ensuring these systems are performing optimally and efficiently. We carry a variety of calibration and test equipment used in the solar energy industry. If you require test equipment or calibration services, we can help recommend the option that is best for your needs.
About the Solar Energy Industry
Making use of photovoltaic (PV) panels to harness sunlight and convert it into energy, the solar energy industry has made great strides as technology advances and mindsets continue to shift. As a sustainable and renewable energy source, it can offer property owners massive savings down the road.
The efficiency of a solar panel system is determined by numerous factors, including:
- Type of panels used
- Amount of sunlight exposure, which is usually determined by where the panels are located
- Surrounding temperature
- Amount of light reflected away from the surface of the panel
- … and more!
While you can expect to receive a degree of sunlight no matter where in the world you are located, there are certain locations that see more sunlight than others. Solar energy companies not only assist with installation, but they also advise their clients on the best position to install their solar panel systems. If a solar panel system is not performing as predicted with no directly discernible cause, PV testing can be carried out to identify the root of the problem.
Why the Solar Energy Industry Needs Calibration Products and Services
Below is a list of calibration and testing applications you may face in the solar energy industry:
- Carry out PV testing, which can provide insights into a variety of areas, including the open circuit voltage, operating current and short circuit current of the system, how much output each panel is producing, and more. This will allow you to make the necessary changes to maximize output, such as repositioning panels. Replace Bullet Point With: It is important to measure and monitor temperature throughout the solar energy industry. We carry temperature calibrators that can be used where high temperatures are generated from solar installations.
- Ensure that testing can be carried out at various stages on each individual module before installation has the chance to start, after installation is first completed as well as ongoing throughout the lifespan of the system.Possible Revision:
A solar installation may use a variety of equipment such as pressure gauges, sensors, transducers and transmitters. We carry this type of equipment as well as calibration instruments for this equipment.
- Calibration and maintenance- Pressure gauges, transmitters, valves and sensors used in the solar energy industry all need periodic calibration and maintenance. We carry deadweight testers, pressure gauges and temperature calibrators that can all be used in the calibration of these field instruments.
