LED solar simulator stand-alone solar simulator head

For integration into existing or custom systems

The most cost-effective way to buy the Ossila Solar Simulator, the stand-alone solar simulator head is the same part as the one sold with the full product package and solar simulator I-V test system bundles. By offering the Ossila Solar Simulator without the z-stage or breadboard, we can provide the same technical features at a much lower price. This is ideal if you would like to add a solar simulator to your existing set up or custom system and have no need for the additional hardware that comes with the full product package.

Identical to the LED solar simulator head sold with the adjustable height z-stage or Solar Cell I-V System, the stand-alone solar simulator lamp unit is class AAA over a 15 mm diameter circular area (using the latest IEC 60904-9:2020 International Standard). The lamp is suitable for use over larger areas too, with a class B spatial non-uniformity rating for areas up to 25 mm in diameter and a class C rating for diameters up to 32 mm.

LED solar simulators offer several advantages over arc lamp solar simulators. They are cheap to run thanks to the high efficiency of LED lights and require zero maintenance. Arc lamps, by comparison, waste a considerable amount of energy as heat and need at least 30 minutes to warm up. The Ossila Solar Simulator is ready to use just a few minutes after you first turn it on.

Mounting information

The solar simulator lamp comes with a permanent mounting bracket attached to the rear. This can be used to afix the lamp to a custom gantry. The dimensions and spacing of the mounting holes are shown below. All holes are unthreaded.
