Instrumentation and Electronics Technician

Instrumentation and Electronics Technicians help develop, test, calibrate, and manufacture electrical and electronic equipment, including solar components or the machines that make them.

As part of the clean energy economy, Instrumentation and Electronics Technicians may work in solar product evaluation and testing, or use measuring and diagnostic devices to adjust, calibrate, and repair high-precision production equipment in solar manufacturing facilities. The job may entail: reading blueprints, wiring diagrams, schematic drawings, and engineering instructions for assembling electronics units; testing electronics units and analyzing results to evaluate performance and determine the need for adjustment; performing preventative maintenance and calibration of equipment and systems; and adjusting or replacing improperly functioning circuitry, electronics components, or instruments.
