PV Integrator Solartron orders SINUS-220

    But for the IR camera, they’ll let us do the integration. Right on the heels of the SERIS deal and the delivery of our tool to our chinese distributor Jsun, we’ve got another Asian success story to report. Systems integrator and cell/module manufacturer Solartron Public Ltd. Co. has signed up for a SINUS-220 LED solar simulator with our optional integrated […]

    LED’s get a distribution partner in China

    China became the largest PV market in the world in 2013 with 11.8 GW of capacity connected to the Middle Kingdom’s grid last year alone.* To break into this vast and rapidly expanding market, WAVELABS has partned with solar manufacturing equipment experts JSun International Limited. It’s an important chapter in the WAVELABS story: the next wave in solar metrology is […]

    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 […]

    LED’s do better R&D!

    Fraunhofer seems to enjoy working with our LED solar simulator 
SINUS-220. Only a few months after commissioning the solar simulator, 
Dr. Marko Turek and his team of Fraunhofer present their R&D work at the largest European scientific PV-conference, EU-PVSEC, held 22.-26. September 2014 in Amsterdam (https://www.photovoltaic-conference.com). Turek et al look at the correct measurement of the series resistance, one of […]

    LED’s copy the rainbow!

    Summer in Germany, this means sunshine AND rain. Two days ago, when we came back from our lunch break, sunshine and rain joined forces and created this wonderful rainbow which hit the roof of our factory in Leipzig beautifully and very gently. The colors of the sun. We went inside, copied the rainbow color by color with our LED solar […]

    Konrad is again a genious and socially minded!

    In July 2013, school boy Konrad joined us for a day for the first time, see our post from July 9, 2013 „Corporate social responsibility of a start-up“. He donated his salary to the fundraising activity „genial sozial“. This project funds aid projects worldwide. Konrad liked the idea of genialsozial and the work with us so much that he came […]

    Silver medal goes to … WAVELABS!

    WAVELABS was awarded the Silver medal of the innovation contest “IQ Innovationspreis”. 40 companies were in the race in the cluster Energy/Ecology/Solar in one of the most prestigious award of the German states of Saxony, Saxony-Anhalt and Thuringia. With companies like Siemens, RWE and Envia on the board, the second place feels like winning an Oscar! http://www.iq-mitteldeutschland.de/iq/wettbewerb/wettbewerb.html

    LED’s flash for Fraunhofer

    Joseph Fraunhofer was knighted by King Maximilian II of Bavaria in 1824. His Optical Institute was widely recognized as the world’s leading producer of fine optics. Fraunhofer invented the spectroscope so that he could characterize the quality of his glass products with far greater precision than ever before. Fast forward 200 years, and the institute that bears Fraunhofer’s name has […]

    LED’s read Photon International

    Leading photovoltaic magazine Photon International recognizes WAVELABS in its annual solar simulator survey for offering the most innovative product on the market. Click here to have a look at the annual survey, which includes an in depth presentation of SINUS-220.
