Customers prefer Hukseflux pyranometers because our affordable calibration
services result in lowest total cost of ownership.
Pyranometers must be calibrated every 2 years. Such recalibration is considered good practice for any measuring instrument and is required by ISO, IEC and WMO standards covering PV system performance - and meteorological monitoring. Cost of recalibration however can be high. Hukseflux helps you to reduce these costs. Pyranometer users prefer Hukseflux pyranometers for their unsurpassed measurement accuracy and their lowest total cost of ownership. Read more below or in our detailed pyranometer calibration note.

ISO / IEC 17025 accredited pyranometer and pyrheliometer calibration
Hukseflux Thermal Sensors is formally accredited to perform ISO / IEC 17025 accredited pyranometer and pyrheliometer calibration services at its main production facility in Delft, the Netherlands. Our scope can be found here. We not only calibrate Hukseflux models; our services include the calibration of all major brands.
ISO/IEC 17025:2017, fully titled "General requirements for the competence of testing and calibration laboratories" enables laboratories to demonstrate that they operate competently and generate valid results.
For most economies, private industry and government entities alike will accept the results of an accredited laboratory without the necessity for any additional calibration, testing, or inspection. More specifically, this is expected in economies that have signed the ILAC Mutual Recognition Agreement. Under accreditation, the calibration result (sensitivity) is also accompanied with a well-documented calibration uncertainty estimate expressed as a percentage.
