Oriel® Introduces the Sol3A(TM) 12 x 12 Solar Simulator

(PresseBox) (Darmstadt, ) Oriel® Instruments, a Newport Corporation Brand, announces the Sol3A(TM) 12 x 12 Solar Simulator. The latest addition to the Class AAA solar simulator product family features a 12 in. x 12 in. (300 mm x 300 mm) output beam. The new instrument utilizes a single 1600W xenon arc lamp with a unique optical design that is capable of meeting spectral match, nonuniformity of irradiance, and temporal stability performance criteria without compromising the 1 Sun output power. In addition, Newport's proprietary, highly stable spectral correction filter can withstand the very high intensity from the lamp without changing spectral properties. This true Class AAA performance is ideal for the most demanding photovoltaic (PV) applications that require a constantwave (CW) light source.

A black, nonreflective finish minimizes stray light and incorporates versatile captive screws for easy user access for alignment, lamp replacement, and filter changes. To ensure operator safety, temperature sensors and advanced safety interlocks provide additional protection and prevent inadvertent exposure to UV light.

All Oriel Sol3A solar simulator products are factorycertified, Class AAA CW systems and have calibration certification that validates Class AAA for all three standards, including the IEC 60904-9 Edition 2 (2007), JIS C 8912, and ASTM E 927-05. The newest model offers improved working distances to accommodate larger samples, and the improved optical design delivers maximum spatial uniformity. Other Sol3A output beam sizes currently available include 2 in. x 2 in., 4 in. x 4 in., 6 in. x 6 in., and 8 in. x 8 in. Rigorously tested, the new Sol3A 12 x 12 offers high reliability and longlife operation to accommodate roundtheclock production environments.
