Atonometrics an Austin, Texas based company develops and manufactures equipment for Photovoltaicmodule reliability testing in high-volume manufacturing environments.
UV Exposure chamber
The Atonometrics UV Exposure System provides ultraviolet (UV) light exposure for accelerated life testing of photovoltaic (PV) modules.
The system can be used for UV pre-conditioning required by IEC 61215 and 61646 for PV module testing. A unique design with two large vertical test planes allows for the simultaneous exposure of 2 to 6 PV modules of typical sizes.
Continuous Solar Simulator LS Series
The Atonometrics Continuous Solar Simulator and Light Soaking Chamber provides simulated sunlight exposure for steady-state testing of photovoltaic (PV) modules. The system can be used for various tests requiring medium or long-term exposure, including photo-induced degradation, power output stabilization, hot-spot testing, and accelerated performance evaluation.
The system can optionally include an integrated Atonometrics I-V measurement system, allowing in-situ characterization of PV modules during testing. The system can also include integrated sensors for light intensity and PV module temperature measurements.
Reference site Fraunhofer ISE, Freiburg
Atonometrics announced on July 1, 2011 that it has installed and qualified a Continuous Solar Simulator at Fraunhofer ISE in Freiburg, Germany. The system includes an integrated I-V measurement system and will be used for Light Soak tests of full-size PV modules.
