Pyranometer Management Program (PMP)
Sensors enrolled in the PMP will be calibrated at ISO-CAL North America, a calibration laboratory in Phoenix, AZ, in compliance with the latest ISO and ASTM standards. The PMP includes schedule management, asset tracking, spare inventory purchase consultation, and spare inventory storage to ensure that pyranometers are continuously calibrated with minimal downtime and cost to our clients.
