LumiSun™ 50 is an innovative, compact bench top LED solar simulator that meets ASTM E927, IEC 60904-9, and JIS C 8904-9 Class AAA for spectral match, uniformity of irradiance, and temporal stability requirements.
LumiSun™ 50 incorporates the same leading LED array and optics architecture as our OEM solar simulators used by leading PV manufacturers world-wide, to do PV cell testing and research, photochemistry and biology, as well as materials testing.
LumiSun™ 50 provides AAA illumination over a 50 x 50 mm area, making it ideal for use in research labs to measure the efficiency and spectral response of photovoltaic cells, as well as a range of other applications such as photobiology, solar degradation, and other sunlight reproach studies.
Unlike bulky lamp-based solar simulators, LumiSun™ 50 employs a multi-wavelength array of long lifetime LEDs that are driven independently. The design incorporates Innovations in Optics, Inc.’s patented light collection optics to project light extremely uniformly across the whole field of illumination – a major improvement over existing LED based designs on the market.
Remote digital control is enabled by an RS-485 interface with Modbus RTU communication protocol.

LumiSun™ 50 output power can be varied from 0.1 to 1.5 Suns. The LEDs can be set to closely emulate the spectral output of the sun. The unit offers three preset solar reference spectra, and the flexibility to create user-defined spectra by varying the output of the individual LEDs.
The LED light source of the LumiSun™ 50 is contained within an air-cooled housing that can rotate the angle of the illumination plane. The optimal working distance is adjusted by converging a pair of red dots from integrated laser pointers.
