Increase the accuracy of your I-V measurements with a properly adjusted solar simulator

Accurate solar cell I-V measurements require excellent solar simulation, appropriate test device mounting and contacting, and precise electronic instrumentation. Of these components, the solar simulator is the most difficult to adjust properly. The PV Measurements’ solar simulator optimization tools comprise a complete toolkit for quick and easy adjustment of your solar simulator.

Optimization ToolPurposeFrequency of Use
Calibrated Reference Cell Set the irradiance of the solar simulator to the one-sun level Every measurement session
Uniformity Mapper Align solar simulator to quickly achieve the highest possible uniformity of irradiation Monthly or after lamp replacement
Spectroradiometer Measure the spectrum of the solar simulator to ensure good spectral match as a lamp ages or is replaced Weekly or after lamp replacement
