The ISFH CalTeC is recognized by the german accreditation body as independent calibration and test laboratory and it is divided into four specialist sections with the following accredited services:
- Testing of performance and reliability of solar thermal systems and components according to ISO 9806, EN 12975, EN 12976, EN 12977, SRCC 100
- Calibration of silicon solar cells, calibrated current-voltage (IV) and spectral responsivity (SR) measurements in accordance to the IEC60904 standards
- Testing of spectroradiometers with respect to the accuracy of the measurement of the spectral irradiance in accordance to CIE 63
- Testing of absorber surface durabillity in accordance to ISO 22975-3, photometry from UV to mid-IR
Furthermore the specialist sections provide several non-accredited services for non-standardized tests and development accompanying investigations.
