    LED’s have a great lunar new year

    China has doubled the number of installed WAVELABS SINUS-220 systems in 2017, with early signs that this could be a feat repeated by early 2018! Three of the six members of the Silicon Module Super League (SMSL) have now made the switch to our LED solar simulators. Singapore, the tropical solar friendly city-state will be home to at least 3 […]

    LED’s characterISE this as a win-win

    Fraunhofer ISE, one of the world’s most important solar PV research institutes and home to the renowned CalLab, has purchased a SINUS-220 LED solar simulator. The WAVELABS flasher will initially be used for characterisation. Depending on the results, future calibration duties are not out of the question. Fraunhofer ISE is hoping to benefit from advantages of LED technology including improved […]

    Three’s a (fairly collegial) crowd

    Our own Torsten Brammer was on hand for pv magazine’s latest equipment roundtable discussion together with Vahid Fakhfouri from Meyer Burger and Klaus Ramspeck from Halm. The trio comprised one proponent each for: conventional xenon based technology (Halm), xenon and hybrid LED/xenon flashers (Meyer Burger), and purely LED-based simulators (WAVELABS). The experts engaged in friendly debate, with all agreeing industry […]

    LED’s go Singapore: SERIS acquires SINUS-220

    Uniquely accurate solar simulation has come to Asia. The Solar Energy Research Institute of Singapore (SERIS) joins the Fraunhofer Institute as the next prominent international research institution to own a WAVELABS SINUS-220 LED solar simulator. Could this be the moment the global solar simulation tide turned from Xenon to LEDs? What we do know is that SERIS appreciates the accuracy […]

    LEDs win Nobel Prize!

    Isamu Akasaki, Hiroshi Amano and Shuji Nakamura receive the 2014 Nobel Prize in physics. Congratulations! Without their invention many products we use everyday would not be as good as they are today. Just like solar simulators. „Alfred Nobel would be happy to see LEDs, because they improve the way people live“ commented the Nobel committee. Oh yes, this includes the […]
