Ecoprogetti’s LED light sourced sun simulator receives triple class A rating

Ecoprogetti’s sun simulator, ECOSUN10L, which employs LED’s as the light source has received a triple class ‘A’ rating under EN60904-9 and IEC 60904-09 specifications, undertaken by TÜV intercert. The specialist equipment manufacturer said the system was the first module LED simulator to work in triple class A and it is suitable both for testing standard crystalline modules, as well as thin film and back contact solar cell modules.

Ecoprogetti also noted that the impulse duration of the simulator could be extended to more than five seconds, while maintaining an A class radiation stability. That feature was said to exclude the phenomenon of capacitive effects making the unit usable on next-generation high-efficiency cells and low-loss junction boxes.

  • Photovoltaics International 25th Edition

    In this issue we offer some insights into what the next wave of photovoltaic technologies may look like as that upturn gathers pace. Industry observers have been in broad agreement that the major next-gen PV technology innovations won’t happen straight away. But there’s also little doubt that the search is now on in earnest for the breakthroughs that will come to define the state of the art in the industry in the years to come.

  • Manufacturing The Solar Future: The 2014 Production Annual

    Although the past few years have proved extremely testing for PV equipment manufacturers, falling module prices have driven solar end-market demand to previously unseen levels. That demand is now starting to be felt by manufacturers, to the extent that leading companies are starting to talk about serious capacity expansions later this year and into 2015. This means that the next 12 months will be a critical period if companies throughout the supply chain are to take full advantage of the PV industry’s next growth phase.
