This product consists of the Sciencetech SOL-METER and our SSIVT-REF sun calibrated reference detector. The SOL-METER is a digital meter for use with solar calibrated detectors such as detector models SSIVT-REF or SC-LT. The meter converts detector measurements to a Sun value. It has a handheld meter that is compact, has a sturdy design, and is appropriate for indoor or outdoor applications.
The Sciencetech Reference Detector, which is an integral part of solar simulator calibration and solar cell I-V characterization, consists of a calibrated solar detector made of silicon.
The Reference Detector comes with calibration data taken by Sciencetech, calibrating it to a NIST-certified solar cell, on an accompanying certificate. It reads solar simulator irradiance in "sun" units; one sun is equal to 1,000 W/m^2, at 25 degrees Celsius and Air Mass 1.5 Global.
This tool's primary use is the testing of photovoltaic cells under standard conditions.
