What is it?

Solar sim unit[edit]

Turning on the machine[edit]

Flip the power switch to on To turn on the lamp:

  • Press the lamp start button

To turn off the lamp:

  • Press the lamp off button

Calibration[edit]

Machine should be precalibrated to approximately 1.0 kW/sq. meter, however this is only within about two inches away from the front of the solar sim. In other words your samples will be getting exactly one sun as long as they are within two inches of the solar simulator. The solar simulator will give less radiation the farther away your samples are from the front of the machine.
