Low Cost Solar Simulators

Cost Effective Solution
Abet Technologies model 10500 is a low cost solar simulator providing an attractive alternative to more fully featured and expensive solar simulators for applications that do not require a large area illuminated field. The optical system of the 10500 produces a collimated 25 mm beam. Focus or defocus it for higher irradiance or larger solar cells. One sun output is achievable up to a 35 mm diameter illuminated field.

Innovative Optical Design
The 10500 utilizes a fast F/1 optical system and rear reflector to collect radiation from the lamp allowing over 3 suns output over smaller fields. The beam can be collimated at 25 mm diameter or defocused to illuminate larger cells. Focus, lateral, and rear reflector adjustments allow for optimizing beam size and uniformity. One sun performance for up to a 35 mm diameter illuminated field with uniformity of +/- 20% can be achieved with careful alignment. Smaller areas within the illuminated field will provide higher levels of uniformity if required.

Reference Cells
NREL calibrated cell used for calibration transfer

The Abet Technologies solar reference cell is a precision instrument for the determination of solar simulator irradiance levels. The sensor is a mono-crystalline silicon solar cell having an area of2x2cm(4cm).The back of the solar cell is attached to the device in such a way that a good heat transfer to the device housing is guaranteed. Below the solar cell a Pt100 RTD temperature sensor is mounted to allow monitoring of device temperature. The device is not shunted allowing the whole IV-curve to be measured. The solar cell is protected by a high quality fused silica window, assuring spectral sensitivity over a 320 -1100 nm range.

The reference solar cell is calibrated at the PV-device calibration facility of the Radboud University of Nijmegen in the Netherlands. This calibration laboratory uses state of the art instruments to characterize solar cells. All reference solar cells are calibrated against an NREL calibrated reference cell. Calibration is performed using a Class A AM 1.5G spectral distribution Abet Technologies Sun 2000 Solar Simulator at near 1000 Wm -2 irradiance level and then corrected to the STC of 1000 Wm -2 and 25°C.
 
Model #15150 Calibrated Reference Cell

Each reference solar cell is delivered with a calibration report showing the IV-curve plot and the following parameters: Isc, Voc, I, Vmpp, Fill Factor and Efficiency.

Relative spectral response measurement is available as one of the options.

UV Exposure Sources
Innovative

The Abet Gen II patent pending optical design dramatically increases the percentage of photons reaching the work plane.

Standard maintenance, lamp, or filter replacement, does not require any tools. Locking indicator dials on all the system controls, located together for ease of alignment, provide for a reproducible setup. A beam imaging accessory makes alignment even faster.

All electronics are packaged in the lamp house — no clutter of high power cables to deal with.

These systems provide UV rich uniform illumination from either Mercury or Mercury Xenon arc lamps specifically chosen to maximize UV output.
 
6 Inch Flood Exposure Source

Adaptable
Abet Technologies offers a number of spectral and field size options to match your application. Sources range in size from 2 x 2 to 8 x 8 inch uniformly illuminated fields.

Additional filters can be accommodated to fine tune the spectral characteristics of the source for your particular application.

A low profile optical alignment system leaves the space below the system wide open for any material positioning equipment or large samples. Unit mounting options allow from above suspension leaving space below totally free if needed.

Compact, Integrated, Efficient, Safe, Convenient to use and maintain.
The entire source, power supply, control electronics, shutter, lamp, and optical compartment are housed in a compact enclosure, approximately 13.75” deep X 23.75” high X 27.5” long (350X600X700 mm). A selection of simple bases allows positioning the various models at their design working distances. The design produces a well balanced unit which is usually used free standing. It can also be suspended from above, and the base removed, for applications requiring more space around the illuminated work plane.

Gen II Optical System — more than 2x throughput improvement
The high efficiency illumination homogenizer is housed in the optical compartment which also contains a securely mounted Hg or HgXe arc lamp, a light collection reflector, an electronic shutter, a condenser lens, optics cooling fan, precision optics adjusters, as well as filters, dichroics, mirrors, apertures, and attenuators needed to produce the desired spectral shape, uniformity and irradiance level.

Replacing the arc lamp is a no tools required operation. Focusing the lamp does not expose the operator to any unsafe light levels (the exception possibly being the usual high irradiance level in the work plane).

All of the optical compartment adjustments are conveniently located on the rear of the source enclosure. They are equipped with lockable indicator dials that provide positive feedback on alignment status and assure stable operation once aligned.

Clean Cooling
Any dust or dirt particles introduced into an optical system can degrade system performance and shorten the life of critical optical components. All Abet sources utilize a HEPA filtered cooling fan to extend the life of the delicate optical components.

Shutter Control
A digital timer for shutter control is available from the control panel on the lamp housing or via a USB or wireless computer interface. A photofeedback option for dose controlled exposure is also available. This option incorporates a light detector housed in the optical compartment, the detector monitors the irradiance being delivered to the work plane. As the lamp or optical components age, and the received signal diminishes, an electronic feedback loop adjusts the shutter open time to assure a constant dose level to the work plane.

Self Contained Electronics
The electronics compartment houses all the required power supplies, the electronics cooling fan, the shutter driver electronics, the digital controls (or the Elapsed Time Meter for preset operating point systems) and the system interlocks.

Having the complete source in a single enclosure assures that any EMI generated during ignition is contained inside the housing. It also eliminates the need for costly shielded cables and connectors.

Safety
Thermal interlocks shut the power supplies down in case of a fan failure to prevent damage that system overheating can cause. Door interlocks shut the lamp power down to prevent user exposure to hazardous voltage, current or radiation if the system door is accidentally opened during system operation.

System Features and Benefits
HEPA FILTERING.
Dust particles even in a laboratory can be introduced into systems by cooling air that is required to maintain a safe operating temperature. Over time these particles can reduce output power or shorten the life of critical optical components. Each Abet exposure source includes HEPA filtering assuring only clean dust free air flows into the lamp housing

Alignment Controls
Accessible and lockable alignment controls produce stable performance and make system alignment a simple and fast procedure.



Alignment Imaging Tool
When lamps are replaced it is often necessary to fine tune system alignment for best performance. A swing in beam imaging tool makes it easy to check that system alignment is optimized.



All systems are supplied with a shutter and digital timer that can be controlled from the side panel of the lamp house, a computer via USB interface or a secure LAN or WAN wireless interface. Mid UV systems normally ship with a borosilicate condenser lens. DUV and NUV systems ship with a UV fused silica condenser. Many other filter options are available — please ask your sales representative for information on other available spectral ranges you might need.
