LED solar simulator provides more than one sun of total irradiance
Innovations in Optics, Inc. (Woburn, MA) introduced the Model 2910A-100-SOL high power, multi-wavelength LED illuminator for testing photovoltaic devices that meets Class AAA solar simulator requirements of IEC 60904-9 for spectral match, uniformity of irradiance, and temporal stability. The 2910A-100-SOL achieves a spatially uniform illumination field by combining chip-on-board (COB) LED technology with efficient, non-imaging, homogenizing optics and a precision re-imaging lens system. The field of illumination is 5 cm x 5 cm at a working distance of 20 cm. The 2910A-100-SOL:
- Uses seven LED spectral bands to cover a spectral range of 400 nm to 1100 nm.
- Provides total irradiance of 1.1 sun units in the spectral range while operating electrically at 85 W.
- Targets terrestrial photovoltaic testing and PV research and is ideally suited for OEM system integration.
