Climate chamber with solar simulator
About 4 years ago, Hielkema Testequipment, Eternal Sun & TNO developed a unique solar testing system for Solliance (High Tech Campus in Eindhoven). This system has been used very successfully to gain new insights into the degradation behavior of solar cells and mini-modules.

From now on, the new solar testing system is commercially available. The new system is a combination of a modified climate chamber, a multi cell IV-measurement system and a large area solar simulator. Also, the simulator produces AAA-class (<2% accurate) sunlight, which is used to provide nearly flawless performance and degradation measurements of PV cells and mini-modules.
This new system is the perfect setup for solar testing under controlled environmental (temperature, humidity and sunlight) condition. It can be used for several applications, in all kind of industries. Accelerated life testing (ALT), degradation, weathering, material testing, performance and reliably testing are among the applications.

Standard, the system is available in two sizes. A test area surface of 0.5 x 0.5 m or 1.0 x 1.0 m. Other test area sizes are upon request.
