Reference Instruments

primary-references
Absolute Cavity Pyrheliometers:
ISO-CAL North America operates two Primary Standard Absolute Cavity Pyrheliometers, traceable to the WRR (World Radiometeric Reference). The Absolute Cavity Pyrheliometer is the Primary Standard reference instrument to which all pyranometers and pyrheliometers are traceable. Both Absolute Cavity Pyrheliometers employ a new state-of-the-art control system developed by Campbell Scientific Inc. The compact portable control system features Campbell Scientific’s latest CR6 model data logger. The control system fully automates cavity operation, data processing and storage.

FEL Irradiance Standard
The FEL Standard Lamp provides absolute calibration of spectral irradiance from 250 – 1100 nm, serving as the primary reference for all spectroradiometer and UV radiometer calibrations.

Digital Multi-Meter:
ISO 17025 calibrated 8.5 digit Keithley 2002 model high performance digital multi-meter.

Multi-Function Process Calibrator:
ISO 17025 calibrated 7.5 digit Datron 4708 Multifunction Calibration Standard
