Next Gen Solar Simulator Now at Fraunhofer CSP!

    Fraunhofer CSP has a shiny new tool in its metrology arsenal, and it comes powered by 18 LED channels perfectly engineered and meticulously aligned.  The engineers at WAVELABS in Germany have done it again with the SINUS-2100p. A poor spectrum and short flash times are now a thing of the past for the solar industry. Flexible lightsoaking and accurate IV […]

    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 […]

It’s an honor for us to take part in a long tradition of Saxon innovation responsible for everything from the daily newspaper to European porcelain. The recognition comes for our SINUS-220 […]

    LED’s go West!

    The US is a huge market and innovator in solar energy. This is why we take part at SEMICON West / Intersolar North America 2015 (July 14-17). Meet us at booth B 1829, Saxony Pavilion, South Hall.

    WAVELABS, REC, and Fraunhofer CSP: “LED’s be realistic.”

    Solar photovoltaic modules require cover glass to protect them from the elements. These glass and clear plastic (EVA) layers in the path between the cell and the sun alter reflectance and absorption properties, creating what are known as cell-to-module (CTM) effects. The light that reaches cells in a finished (encapsulated) solar module thus differs from what a bare solar cell […]

    LED’s generate buzz – WAVELABS in pv magazine’s SNEC top 50

    Recognizing the potential LED technology holds for the future of solar metrology and photovoltaics, pv magazine has listed WAVELABS at a sensational 25th place in its “50 shades of Future PV.” The leading industry magazine’s ranking of pioneering technologies on display at SNEC includes a brief description of their significance for the future of the industry. pv magazine praises the innovativeness […]
