InterCal extends solar panel testing capability

Technews Industry Guide: Maintenance, Reliability & Asset Optimisation 2018 Electrical Power & Protection

InterCal director Paul Haarhoff and sales manager Mike Devenish recently received training from Netherlands-based Chroma ATE on several of the Chroma systems.

Chroma ATE is a leading supplier of precision test and measurement instrumentation, automated test systems, manufacturing execution systems and turnkey test and automation solutions marketed globally under the brand name Chroma. From military and aerospace to automotive, renewable energy and medical device testing, Chroma products are trusted by many of the world’s leading R&D laboratories to provide consistent, fast and accurate measurements. With offices and manufacturing facilities located worldwide, Chroma is renowned for its commitment to excellence in products, services and innovation.

In South Africa, Chroma is represented by InterCal and this training session was for Haarhoff and Devenish to become familiar with the 17020 battery test system and the PV inverter ATS 8000, soon to be installed at a local university for alternative energy research and solar panel testing.

Chroma ATE is accredited to ISO 9001 for quality systems, ISO 16949 for electric vehicle power systems and ISO 17025 for calibration. Along with InterCal’s own SANAS ISO 17025 accredited laboratories and southern African footprint, the Chroma/InterCal partnership is a strong contender in the southern African market.
