◆Enli Tech SS-F5s solar simulators are certified to Class A+AA+ for the standards of IEC 60904-9.

IEC 60904-9 Class A+ Class A Enli Tech SS-F5s
Spectral Match 0.875-1.125 0.75-1.25 A+
Non-Uniformity of Irradiance 1% 2% A
Temporal Instability 1% 2% A+

◆Spectral Match: SS-F5s solar simulators are compliance with IEC 60904-9 Class A+ definition.
According to the IEC 60904-9 standards, an ideal Class A+ spectral match for a solar simulator is based on the percentage of the integrated light intensity in 7 spectral ranges from 300 nm to 1100 nm. The spectral match in each interval needs to be between 0.875 and 1.125 to meet Class A+. 
Enli Tech SS-F5s Steady-State Solar Simulators with AM 1.5G spectral correction filter provide the highest spectral match performance (Class A+) as defined by IEC 60904-9 standards.

Wavelength Enli Tech SS-F5s AM1.5G Spectral Match Classification
300-400 nm 5.98 % 5.66 % 1.06 A+
400-500 nm 17.97 % 17.32 % 1.04 A+
500-600 nm 18.50 % 18.77 % 0.99 A+
600-700 nm 17.26 % 17.31 % 1.00 A+
700-800 nm 12.87 % 14.08 % 0.91 A+
800-900 nm 11.87 % 11.77 % 1.01 A+
900-1100 nm 15.54 % 15.10 % 1.03 A+

◆Non-uniformity of irradiance: SS-F5s solar simulators are compliance with IEC 60904-9 Class A definition.
The non-uniformity of irradiance on the test plane is critical for solar cell characteristic measurement, because it is one of the major sources of uncertainty for maximum power determination. It shall be measured at each required irradiance level. For the purpose of non-uniformity classification, the Class AAA spatial non-uniformity performance standard is designed to minimize the impact of hot spots and has a very stringent requirement of ≤2%. Enli Tech SS-F5s Steady-State Solar Simulators is compliance with IEC 60904-9 Class A definition.

◆Temporal instability: SS-F5s solar simulators are compliance with IEC60904-9 Class A+ definition.
For accurate and repeatable sola cell performance measurement, temporal instability of irradiance requires that output light be stable over time to ensure the lamp fluctuations do not distort the measurement of solar cell efficiency. Enli Tech SS-F5s Steady-State Solar Simulators meets the Class A+ requirements of ≤1% for temporal instability as defined by IEC 60904-9. 

◆Nonlinear intensity adjustment
Through the high-precise light intensity adjustment function, SS-F5s can do the measurement of different light intensity from 0% to 100%.

◆Flexible light direction design
SS-F5s solar simulator provides a flexible light direction according to users’ samples. With its unique design, SS-F5s can be perfectly integrated with your glove box and sample box as well.
