A system of 48 LASI units. Each LASI unit illuminates up to 0.5x0.5m with a filtered xenon short arc lamp producing 6,000K illumination.

Non-uniformity is not tested, and typical values are quoted.
LASI units are tested for spectral match compliance to ASTM E927-19 AM1.5G class C and temporal instability compliance to ASTM E927-19 class A.
LASI units include one high-quality 1.6kW xenon short arc lamp per unit purchased.

Each unit includes an integrated single-phase power supply with a touch screen interface that requires 220VAC. Systems can be operated remotely through Sciencetech PowerControl software. C++/ Python control is possible with an additional SciencetechCOM module. Labview control is possible with additional SciAX module.

In certain applications a single LASI may be used on its own. However, LASIs are best used in arrays of multiple units, as the optical performance improves when the light from multiple units overlaps.

LASI units have a mounting flange but do not include a stand to hold the LASI unit. LASI units are intended to operate vertically facing downwards. See the brochure for additional product information and available accessories.

Power requirements: 200-240 VAC, 12.1 to 9.0 A per unit.

A system of 4 LASI units. Each LASI unit illuminates up to 0.5x0.5m with a filtered xenon short arc lamp producing 6,000K illumination.

Non-uniformity is not tested, and typical values are quoted.
LASI units are tested for spectral match compliance to ASTM E927-19 AM1.5G class C and temporal instability compliance to ASTM E927-19 class A.
LASI units include one high-quality 1.6kW xenon short arc lamp per unit purchased.

Each unit includes an integrated single-phase power supply with a touch screen interface that requires 220VAC. Systems can be operated remotely through Sciencetech PowerControl software. C++/ Python control is possible with an additional SciencetechCOM module. Labview control is possible with additional SciAX module.

In certain applications a single LASI may be used on its own. However, LASIs are best used in arrays of multiple units, as the optical performance improves when the light from multiple units overlaps.

LASI units have a mounting flange but do not include a stand to hold the LASI unit. LASI units are intended to operate vertically facing downwards. See the brochure for additional product information and available accessories.

Power requirements: 200-240 VAC, 12.1 to 9.0 A per unit.

C++/ Python control is possible with an additional SciencetechCOM module. Labview control is possible with additional SciAX module.

In certain applications a single LASI may be used on its own. However, LASIs are best used in arrays of multiple units, as the optical performance improves when the light from multiple units overlaps.

LASI units have a mounting flange but do not include a stand to hold the LASI unit. LASI units are intended to operate vertically facing downwards. See the brochure for additional product information and available accessories.

Power requirements: 200-240 VAC, 12.1 to 9.0 A per unit.

AM1.5G Spectral Match: Class A
AM0 Spectral Match: Class A 350-1100 nm, Class C 1100-1400 nm
Spatial Non-Uniformity: Class B
Temporal Instability: Class A
Target Size: 100 mm diameter
Working Distance: 1-3 m
Maximum Irradiance: 1.0 Suns (AM0), 1.2 Suns (AM1.5G), 1.5 Suns (Unfiltered)
Collimation (half angle): <0.5 degrees
Lamp Power: 1600 W
Illumination Direction: Horizontal (beam turner available)
Standard for Classification: ASTM E927-19

The COL variations focus on high collimation, the HOM variations on best spatial non-uniformity, the CON variations on high irradiance, and the LA variations on the most efficient large-area coverage. Each version can be modified to balance the most critical features. Please contact our sales team for more information about modifications and accessories.

Each BigSun includes a lamp housing, power supply, arc lamp, air mass filter, standard fixed frame, and testing report.

This system includes 1 power cable. The region-specific version must be selected at the time of placing an order.
The cable requires 200-240VAC, 50/60 Hz, 15A (max current), plug type must be specified by country.

This solar simulator is based on a Fresnel lens to collimate the light beam from the 3.0kW Xe ozone-free arc lamp source, resulting in highly collimated illumination of the target spot. The spectral distribution of the xenon light source, along with the use of specially calibrated air mass filters, closely simulates the sun’s true spectral distribution in various conditions on Earth.

Works best with 1 Sun AM1.5D filters (not included). Other AM filters are available but they may change the target size achievable. Contact a Sciencetech technical sales representative for details.

Target: up to 28 cm (11") diameter (depends on required irradiance level)
Collimation: 0.7° half angle (70% of irradiance is within)
Non-uniformity: Class B
Lamp: 3.0kW ozone-free Xe short arc

200-240VAC, 20A
Requires 1 NEMA 6-30P power cord

Optional accessories: vertical beam turning unit, light intensity stabilizer, integrated motorized shutter
* Systems can be built for downfacing operation if specified at time of order

Sciencetech’s high powered fully reflective solar simulators can be used for UV applications by replacing the solar filters with UV filters. Sciencetech's proprietary Fully Reflective design allows the system to get far more UV power on target than our competitor's systems of equal size.

Please note that the wavelength definition of UVA and UVB in the COLIPA sun screen testing community is slightly different from the general scientific community.
This solar simulator includes testing and filters to verify the system meets COLIPA and USFDA spectral requirements.
Please discuss your specific spectral needs with your authorized Sciencetech technical sales staff.
