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.
