SMALL AREA SOLAR SIMULATORS

A solar simulator (also known as "artificial sun") is a device that provides illumination approximating natural sunlight. The purpose of the solar simulator is to provide a controllable indoor test facility under laboratory conditions, used for the testing of solar cells, sun screen, plastics, and other materials and devices.

Rotalab's low cost solar simulator systems are steady state (continuous) solar simulators based on small area lenses. Rotalab offers two lines (SF and SL/SLB) of small area solar simulators that produces 1 Sun (AM1.5G) and class A, B or C uniformity over 2.5 and 5 cm diameters depending on the selected model. Small Collimated Beam Solar Simulators (SF series) are designed for applications requiring a more collimated beam or more UV production than provided by the SL/SLB series. On the other hand, Compact Solar Simulators (SL/SLB series) are more efficient than the SF series and are a popular choice when collimated light or significant levels of UV on the target are not needed.

Conformity with ASTM, IEC and JIS standards about spectral matching, irradiance spatial non-uniformity and temporal instability is available for our small area solar simulators.
