Compact LED Solar Simulator Is a Finalist for the Photonics Prism Awards at Photonics West 2020


Reading time ( words)

Innovations in Optics, Inc. introduces the Model 6000B-100, a compact, multi-wavelength LED solar simulator for PV manufacturers to test steady-state I-V measurements of photovoltaic devices. It meets Class AAA solar simulator requirements of IEC 60904-9 for spectral match, uniformity of irradiance, and temporal stability.

The Prism Awards is an international competition that recognizes the most innovative new products from companies that will make a difference and improve quality of life through photonics. The Model 6000B-100 is a finalist in the Energy category. The award winners are revealed at the SPIE Photonics West event in San Francisco.

The 6000B-100 includes a digital driver/controller with RS-485 MODBUS RTU protocol. Embedded chip-scale spectral sensors provide feedback monitoring to stabilize source irradiance. The field of illumination is 50 x 50 mm at a working distance of 155 mm. The compact and lightweight design supports a diversity of system integration concepts. Consuming only 15W of input power to produce 1 Sun of irradiance, the 6000B-100 is energy efficient and simplifies any thermal interface or active cooling scheme. Its complete value proposition comprises low power consumption, higher stability, smaller size, greater application flexibility, and a significantly lower cost-of-ownership for PV testing compared to other commercial solar simulators. The product is intended for industrial use by qualified system integrators.

What’s Coming in 3D Printing Technology in 2018

12/27/2017 | Cullen Hilkene, 3Diligent
First, the arrival of extrusion metal printing. Today's extrusion printers are the most prevalent and, arguably, user-friendly 3D Printers in the market. Now, after years of there being zero metal extrusion printers, there will be two in the new year from Desktop Metal and Markforged. These technologies promise new materials and a higher degree of user friendliness for metal printing.

Wearable Tech Back to a Healthy Development Pace

02/11/2015 | Reed Exhibitions
Wearable tech was a major sensation in 2014. The wearable tech industry generated extensive interest among media, investors, start-ups, wearable tech enthusiasts, technology leaders and trade fairs. Many events were held around wearable products and industry last year. The trend for early 2015 has seen the industry fall back into a healthy developmental pace. Investors are keen to see a return on their capital injections and former start-ups are now reaching maturity.
