New Product Upgrade: Solar Cell I-V Test System

Posted on Fri, Nov 30, 2018 by Nick Scarratt

The newly-upgraded Solar Cell I-V Test System is launching soon!

In December, the Ossila I-V Curve Measurement System will be upgraded. It will also be renamed to the Ossila Solar Cell I-V Test System. Both the manual and multiplexed versions of the systems will be upgraded to incorporate our new X200 Source Measure Unit - bringing greater performance, extra features, and increased usability. 

Key Upgrades & Improvements

A more relevant product name: We will rename the I-V Curve Measurement System to the Solar Cell I-V Test System. After some careful consideration, our R&D team chose this name because it is a more relevant description of the system's intended function and capabilities.

New solar cell measurement: As requested by many customers, this system now allows you to perform stabilised current measurements on your solar cells. All you need to do is set a voltage and measure device current over time, then customise the measurement for your experimental needs.

Increased maximum current capacity: The Solar Cell I-V System is now capable of delivering a maximum current of 150 mA (compared to the previous maximum of 100 mA).

Larger current ranges: The maximum current capacity of the other four ranges has also increased, meaning you can now measure higher currents before needing to change range.

Software-controlled current ranges: For safety and convenience, the current range switches can be controlled using the included PC software - so there is no need for manual adjustment.

Sleek, durable casing: The system is now completely encased in a static-free metal casing, which protects the internal circuitry.


Stay tuned for more updates!

Nick joined Ossila in 2015 after completing a physics PhD in organic photovoltaics at the University of Sheffield. This gave him experience in device physics, coating techniques, and the optical and electrical characterisation of organic semiconductors. His PhD also involved the construction and programming of automated characterisation systems. He now draws from this knowledge to design and create test and measurement systems for Ossila.
