Abstract

This paper evaluates the calibration results for 600 solar irradiance sensors, (ESTI-Sensors). They were built in 3 different designs and by 2 different suppliers and within the second and third batch sensors with black or white front sheets were produced. The quality of the product and of the calibration method itself are evaluated and discussed. The spread of calibration values was evaluated for each of the 3 designs separately. The calculated statistical distributions of values were normalized for better comparison. The results may improve the quality on both production and calibration and lower the cost of the product.
