WOBURN, Mass., May 30, 2014 — The Model 2910A-300 LED illuminator from Innovations in Optics meets Class AAA solar simulator requirements of IEC 60904-9 for spectral match, uniformity of irradiance and temporal stability, and is suited for use in terrestrial photovoltaic testing and PV research. The LED achieves a spatially uniform illumination field by combining chip-on-board LED technology with efficient, non-imaging, homogenizing optics and a precision re-imaging lens system. The field of illumination is 5 × 5 cm at a working distance of 20 cm, with seven spectral bands covering a spectral range of 400 to 1100 nm. Total irradiance of 1.1 sun units is available while operating electrically at 85 W. The compact light source measures 10 × 3 cm and is suited for OEM system integration. Multiple units can be combined for the illumination of larger areas.
