The Spire Solar 5600SLP Blue 230ms provides superior measurement accuracy and precision for critical module performance measurements. The system delivers a Class A+ 300nm-1300nm spectrum in addition to Class A + uniformity and temporal performance in combination with a measurement repeatability of ≤ 0.15%. The simulator’s unique feature of single pulse durations exceeding 230ms supports maximum module power determination of high efficiency silicon, thin film, PERC, HIT and multi-junction modules that exhibit internal capacitance effects. These versatile capabilities make the simulator ideal for use in applications ranging from R&D to high volume automated production. The innovative optical design also makes the system uniquely suited as a reference instrument for laboratory institutions, universities and leading international calibration and certification organizations.
The 5600SLP Blue’s superior accuracy delivers reliable measurement results, enabling traceability to international (gold) module standards calibrated by the world’s leading certification bodies. Spire’s simulators are the industry standard for test organizations worldwide including NREL, UL, TÜV, FSEC, EC-JRC, CSA, KIER, Exova, Intertek.
