Supporting the Development and the Manufacturing of PV Cells and Modules
In order to create a better global environment, great hopes are being placed on solar photovoltaic arrays (PV) as a future primary energy source. Iwasaki is proud that our solar simulation lighting systems are playing an active role in the basic research, product development, and manufacturing of new technology PV panels. Solar simulation lighting has become indispensable for the efficient development and production of high performance, high quality PV panels. The environmental conditions required differ depending on the tests, such as output measurement evaluation and durability assessment, and manufacturing processes. Iwasaki’s equipment perfectly controls the "Light", "Temperature" and "Humidity" according to each process and provides the optimal test environment.
Complies with IEC60904-9 solar simulator/classes B and C. Includes integrated temperature and humidity controls, allowing the output measurement testing and the complex durability testing to be conducted by one unit. The work size and the temperature/humidity control range, etc. can be customized.
These chambers are available at Iwasaki for testing your samples; please contact your local agent for details.
Complies with IEC60904-9 solar simulator/class A. Primary light irradiation testing (performance evaluation testing) for solar research and development.
UV rays are the greatest cause of product deterioration. This unique system dramatically intensifies the deterioration acceleration caused by UV rays. It can achieve an acceleration factor greater than 100 times normal sunlight, producing material effects equivalent to extended outdoor exposure. Its compact size makes it ideal for research and development testing of paints, inks, pigments and fibers as well as plastics.
In a PV production line, solar-simulated light is often required for light stabilization of modules and the assessment of PV output performance. Iwasaki has developed a system incorporating its unique continuous light source technology to provide the simulated solar irradiation required in the PV production line process. We provide a complete process system including material handling, temperature control, equipment control, and process communication.
Complies with IEC60904 Class A solar simulation standards.
Up to 100ms of effective irradiated time is achieved. Through our proprietary filter technology, spectral concordance conforms to IEC / JIS Class A standards.
Three systems provide a wide selection to meet your panel size, floor space, and performance requirements.
