Cell Solar Simulator
QuickSun 130E is a versatile manually operated Xenon flash simulator for testing both ordinary and high capacitance crystalline silicon solar cells.
QuickSun 130E exceeds the ordinary Class A criterions of IEC904-9 ed. 2 with clear margin providing enhanced IV characteristics accuracy. The applicable test methods and procedures are inspected by SGS Fimko Ltd in order to guarantee the compliance and traceability not only with the above standard but also with IEC904-1 ed. 2 which specifies the IV measurement conditions.
QuickSun software is designed to provide flexibility for different end-users from fully automated large scale production lines to smaller factories and research laboratories. Full remote control of the software and all its features is possible through a TCP interface and measurement data is automatically transferred to an external database using an ODBC interface.
Manually operated Kelvin contacted test jig is easily adjustable for crystalline silicon cells having either three, four or five bus bars. Also the back contact plate has isolated voltage probes eliminating the reproducibility drift inherent with ordinary test jig designs.
