Large Area Solar Simulators


Solar simulators that simulate sun light over larger target areas in the scale of 1m x 1m or more has become an essential and import requirement for many research and industrial usages. Depending on the customer requirements, Sciencetech Large Area Solar simulator systems employ Xenon short arc lamps, LEDs or metal halide lamps as the base of the illumination system to mimic solar illumination.

Sciencetech's XE-LUM Luminaire is a low cost solution for researchers requiring large areas of illumination with good spectral matching but do not require high levels of spatial uniformity. The XE-LUM includes a 1.6kW Xenon arc lamp and efficient collection reflectors. At a working distance of 50cm an irradiance of 1 sun AM1.5G sun level can be achieved with an illumination area of 50x50cm. The area of illumination is up to 1.0m x 1.0m with a working distance of 1 meter.
The XE-LUM can achieve better uniformity when paired with multiple units in an array to flood the illumination plane.

The stand is an accessory that is sold separately. The XE-LUM can be arranged for vertical or horizontal illumination. In either configuration, the Luminaire can be rotated through 360 degrees in both sagittal and tangential planes.

The Luminaire has a single phase power supply and requires 200 to 240 VAC, 12.1 to 9.0 A. The required plug type needs to be defined based on the equipment's intended location.

Please speak with your authorized Sciencetech technical sales staff member for larger illumination areas, different spectral matches, or to have other customized options for this system.

A single Large Area Solar Illuminator (LASI) unit.
Each LASI unit illuminates up to 0.5x0.5m with a filtered Xenon Arc lamp producing 6,000K illumination.
In certain applications a single LASI may be used on its own. However LASIs are best used in arrays of multiple units, as the optical performance improves when the light from multiple units overlaps.
A single LASI unit produces Class C Spectral match, Class A temporal instability. See the brochure for details about the system non-uniformity classification. Better optical performance is possible: please discuss your particular needs with your authorized Sciencetech technical support staff member.
Each unit has a single-phase power supply with a touch screen interface. Systems can be operated remotely through software.
Base system does not include a mount, see brochure for product information.
Power requirements: 200-240 VAC, 12.1 to 9.0 A.

This is for a sixteen unit set of LASI, designed to illuminate up to a 2x2m target with excellent three dimensional uniformity. All LASI systems operate with Xe arc lamps and therefore with the solar color temperature of 6,000 K. This allows the LASI to be used in applications that vary with depth, as opposed to generating only 2D uniformity on a single plane.
This price does not include a basic frame to hold the LASI.
This device is capable of Class C Spectral compliance and Class B temporal instability. Uniformity is typically ±15% over the central area.
Each unit has a single phase power supply and requires 200 to 240 VAC, 12.1 to 9.0 A. The required plug type needs to be defined based on the equipment's intended location.
Better performance is possible: please discuss your particular needs with your authorized Sciencetech technical support staff member.
