Abstract

The calibration results are evaluated for 600 solar irradiance sensors, (ESTI-Sensors). They were built in three different designs and by two different suppliers. In the second and third batches, sensors with black and 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 three designs. The calculed 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.
