LET YOUR ACCURACY SHINE! The Solar Reference Cell from VLSI Standards is designed for calibrating the irradiance of solar simulators used for testing solar cells and modules.
Solar Reference Cells Product Description
The Solar Reference Cells consist of a 20 mm x 20 mm monocrystalline silicon Photovoltaic Cell encased in a 92 mm x 70 mm x 16 mm metal enclosure with a protective quartz window and a temperature sensor. The temperature sensor can be selected as either a Type K thermocouple or a 100 ohm platinum Resistance Temperature Detector (RTD). Customers may choose from various window types.
The Solar Reference Cells come with a Certificate of Calibration and compatible set of connecting cables. The following parameters of the reference cell are certified: Isc, Imax, Voc, Vmax, Pmax, Area, Fill Factor and Efficiency. The certification is accredited by NIST to the ISO-17025 standard and is traceable both to the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), and to the International System of Units (SI). A compatible cable set is also supplied with each Solar Reference Cell.
Optional temperature dependence measurement of Isc, Voc and efficiency between 20°C and 30°C is also available.
