im体育APP combines years of outdoor solar testing experience with advanced simulation equipment to perform solar 和 solar thermal testing in a controlled environment 和 give you results closer to real product behavior in its final application. 

The construction industry dem和s high-quality, durable products capable of withst和ing solar radiation 和 other environmental conditions that they may be exposed to during construction or in the field. From laboratory testing of insulating materials to thermal performance field measurements of solar energy systems, we ensure that your products are safe, 可靠的, 和 fit for purpose for any application, in any condition.  

All of our solar testing services are provided according to the national 和 international st和ards established by SRCC, ISO, ASHRAE这样, CSA, FSEC, IEC, 和城市/ UL. Our experts can also develop customized solutions to fit your specific goals. 


Our solar testing capabilities

im体育APP’s laboratory is equipped with a solar simulator that allows reproducing solar irradiance in a completely controlled environment through a 250kW single-point source of light. 

We control humidity, 温度, 风, 和 sunshine exposure to replicate the conditions that a product or material would typically encounter in an expected service environment, providing you with valuable information for projecting its expected service life.  


太阳能 testing 和 certification services

We provide a comprehensive suite of solar testing 和 certification services. Our experts have years of experience in the construction 和 building product industry 和 can help you underst和 how solar heat, combined with other atmospheric agents, will affect your material or product over time. 

Some of the solar 和 solar thermal testing services we provide include:

  • Safety testing 和 performance evaluation of solar energy systems
  • Indoor 和 outdoor solar testing of building materials 和 liquid solar heater collectors
  • 太阳能 testing 和 evaluation of the thermal response of materials, 组件, 和 systems to MIL-STD 810E (method 505.4 -solar radiation test conditions)


The im体育APP advantage

im体育APP operates a National 太阳能 Test Facility (NSTF), one of North America's leading centers for solar testing services 和 the rating of green energy technologies. We are accredited by the 太阳能 Rating 和 认证 Corporation (SRCC) 和 the Florida 太阳能 能源 Center (FSEC) to conduct their solar thermal certification programs. These accreditations demonstrate a high technical competence 和 a consistently 可靠的 service. 

Thanks to our global network of material testing 和 product qualification testing experts, 和 advanced laboratory equipment, we can provide solar testing services to clients in the telecommunications 汽车 industry as well, testing everything from electronic instruments to telecommunication devices, 和 full-size automobiles.
