SciSun Solar Simulator - Sciencetech

Sciencetech Low Cost Solar Simulators


Sciencetech is proud to offer our newly improved line of Low Cost Solar Simulator Systems, based on small area lenses. Sciencetech offers two lines (SF and SciSun) of solar simulators that produce up to 2 Suns (AM1.5G), depending on the selected model.

These systems are a great choice if low price is a high priority, without having to compromise on important solar simulator specifications. 

At the heart of a Sciencetech Solar Simulator, a xenon arc lamp, housing, a special optical assembly, power supply with igniter, filter holder and manual shutter are included. SF solar simulators also include UV fused silica lenses for higher UV emission.

These systems are complete plug-and-play operable and come with easily configurable, touchscreen power supply and control software. Class AAA Solar Simulator spectral matching, spatial non-uniformity, and temporal instability are conformed to ASTM, IEC and JIS standards.


SciSun Solar Simulator Series

(Previously Sciencetech SLB Solar Simulator series)


The most cost-effective solar simulator on the market. The SciSun comes with an adjustable beam turner mounted at the output to direct the beam at any angle: down or up, left or right. Designed for 150 - 300W Xenon arc lamps.



Class AAA solar simulation in accordance with ASTM, IEC, and JIS
2 inch x 2 inch (50mm x 50mm) target area illumination
Up to 2 suns irradiance
Provides a manual variable attenuator to adjust from 0.1–2 suns



AM1.5G or AM0 Spectral Match available

SF Solar Simulator Series



Sciencetech SF Series offers Highly Collimated Beam Solar Simulators for applications requiring a more collimated beam or more UV production. Sciencetech SF Solar Simulator include an arc lamp housing, 1 arc lamp, touchscreen power supply with igniter, and filter holder.

Filter Option



Class: AAA (ASTM E927-19, IEC 60904-9)
Target size: 50 × 50 mm
Intensity: 1.5 Suns
ND filter for 1 sun operation included
Working distance: 380 mm (with beam turning unit CTBT-3)

The SciSun can be configured to precisely suit user requirements.

The following features can be selected to provide the best SciSun for your application (see brochure for full details):
- Air Mass Filter: AM0 spectral matching is the standard option. Other filtering options are possible; please contact us for more details.
- Lamp: 300 W produces a maximum intensity of 1.5 Suns (AM0 irradiance level).
- Power Supply: The included power supply can be a full-featured, adjustable touchscreen-controlled supply (CE compliant), or a simpler, manually-operated power supply (not CE compliant).
- Beam Turner: A 360-degree adjustable beam turner is included as a standard feature in all models.
- Stand: Three stand options are available as optional accessories: a simple, economical, height-adjustable stand for downward-facing use (in conjunction with a beam turner), a workstation with adjustable sample tray, and a workstation with adjustable sample tray within a dark chamber. If the system is ordered with no stand, it sits on the tabletop and the beam can be rotated to the desired direction using the beam turner.
- Shutter: A manual shutter is an economical option, while a motorized shutter is available as an optional replacement if computer control of the shutter is required. To control the motorized shutter from the power supply, the touchscreen power supply option is required.
- Attenuation: Manual or motorized variable attenuators are available optional accessories. If no variable attenuator is chosen, the SciSun will still come with a removeable neutral density filter to permit 1 sun operation.

This system includes 1 IEC 60320 C13 compatible power cable. Region-specific version must be selected at the time of placing an order (see product 491-9001).

Also included are a xenon arc lamp, filter holder, and testing report.
