Accurate & repeatable power determination of all PV types and technologies in module production lines
Spire Xenon Single Long Pulse solar simulator is designed for high volume production testing of PV modules. The system has IEC 60904-9 ed. 3 class A+A+A+ classification for spectrum, spatial uniformity, and temporal stability and allows for better control of “measurement uncertainty” with a measurement repeatability of below 0.15%. It delivers accurate and repeatable power measurements, enabling traceability to international gold module standards certified by the world’s leading certification bodies. Manufacturing Spire flasher stands far above other systems by combining the best technical specifications, with the lowest cost of ownership.
Xenon Single Long Pulse >170ms without the need for software corrections
Spire flashers are the most stable and accurate solar simulators in the industry and it has become the industry standard for PV manufacturers.
Flexible line integration
PV Modules can be placed with sunny side up or down
What sets this product apart
A+A+A+ IEC 60904-9 ed. 3 ready
Simulated light with wavelengths between 300 and 1200nm ensures true Pmax output
Superior repeatability and reproducibility
Repeatability ≤ 0.15% and reproducibility ≤0.20% for long-term simulator stability and “matching” of simulators across multiple plant locations
Best form factor for inline automation interfaces combined with high throughput of 20-second typical cycle time
High resolution uniformity
Micro (high resolution) uniformity is important to accurately test half-cut and shingled PV modules
Spectral Coverage (SPC) >99%
High SPC helps to prove light content between 300-350nm and 1150-1200nm, necessary to show the gain of high-efficiency modules
2,6 m x 1,4 m test area
Our solar simulators are suitable to test all PV sizes, from mini-modules up to the largest modules expected in the market
