Custom Instrumentation

CFV Labs has the in-house capability to design and build high precision, sophisticated custom electronics and instrumentation.   We have been doing this for our own purposes for years, and have begun to make some of our products commercially available.   We do our own circuit design, Spice simulations, PCB layout and assembly.  We also do microprocessor programming in C and control coding in Python.   Below are some of our newer products.  If you need a custom design or assistance with your own development project don't hesitate to reach out.

Outdoor Testing of Cells and Mini-Modules.JPG

MMPT Load and IV Tracer

  • CFV has a large outdoor test yard and has evaluated almost all data acquistion technologies available for PV.

  • We are building our own custom equipment optimized for the specific challenges of emrerging technologies like Perovskites.

  • These products are specifically designed for outdoor testing of experimental devices in small formats like cells and mini-modules, including MPPT and IV tracing capability.

PV String Monitor

  • CFV has a large outdoor test yard and has evaluated almost all data acquistion technologies available for PV.

  • We decided to build our own custom string monitor customized  the specific challenges of PV.

  • The resulting family of instrumentation is ultra-high accuracy (+/- .2%), with nearly zero temperature coefficients, and  can be configured in module or string versions, and with wireless or wired data and power.
