800-Series simulators are always tested, certified and results reported exactly as specified in the applicable solar simulator standards and this is being proved by a globally recognized inspection body, SGS Fimko Ltd.
In order to comply with the Class AAA tolerances of the standard IEC 60904-09, ed. 2, proprietary optics has been developed for filtering the spectrum and improving irradiance non-uniformity. Since voltage, current and irradiance signals are recorded simultaneously, Short Term Instability (STI) is inherently 0% and in A class.
800-Series simulators are routinely applied to measure standard mono/polycrystalline silicon, or a-Si, CdTe and CIS/CIGS PV modules. The measurement of thin film materials only requires filtering of the monitor cell in order to comply with the spectral response of the material to be measured.
All 800-Series simulators are equipped with two flash generators. This extends the length of the flash pulse and improves Long Term Instability (LTI). Additionally, double slope voltage sweep and 2-flash measurement allow testing of high capacitance PV materials.
