  • Calibration and testing in the Area of Temperature (Temperature Calibration and Characterization of Isothermal Media): It involves on-site calibration certification of industrial heating systems mainly (furnaces, ovens, freezers, autoclave, tunnels, baths, etc.). To achieve this, temperature stability and uniformity tests are performed, as well as calibration of thermal instruments, precision and thermal inertia tests, etc.
  • Calibration and testing in the Area of Electricity (Low Frequency). Performance of inlab calibration of electrical measuring equipments (voltmeters, ammeters, ohmmeters, multitesters, insulation testers, current clamps, etc.).
  • Calibrations and measurements in other areas, calibrations are performed in the area of pressure (pressure gauges, vacuum gauges, transducers), and measurements of magnitudes of time, air velocity, light and humidity.
  • Power Quality Analysis. Characterisation of power supply and diagnosis of disturbances on high/medium-voltage electricity supply networks following European standard UNE-EN 50160.
  • Thermography Inspections. Study of the thermal behaviour of industrial energy systems through Infrared Thermography.
  • Advice on Electrical Metrology. Services in this area include metrology support to maintenance services, equipment/system purchase and turn- up, training, etc.

Available facilities

  • Calibration Laboratory – Area of Electricity (low frequency).
  • Calibration Laboratory – Area of Temperature.
  • Infrared Thermography Equipment


  • Laboratory accredited by ENAC (196/LC513) according to the UNE-EN ISO / IEC 17025: 2005 for calibrations for Class I (in situ) and reach in "Calibrating Temperature and Characterization of isothermal media" as aeronautical industry standards. This accreditation means the 1 st accreditation granted to a laboratory in Andalusia (3 º in Spain) with the aforementioned range.
  • Certified Laboratory in the UNE-EN ISO 9001:2008 with scope to "Metrology Calibration Service Electric and Temperature" and awarded by Bureau Veritas
