    Ocean Optics RaySphere Solar Analysis System

    The New RaySphere Solar Analysis System for absolute irradiance measurements of solar simulators and other radiant sources. The new RaySphere from Ocean Optics measures absolute irradiance over spectral ranges from the UV to the
    NIR (350 to 1700 nm).

    This portable system is ideal for solar simulator manufacturers and research and development labs as a tool to validate the output of installed solar flashlamps. The flash of a solar simulator is used within the photovoltaic (PV) manufacturing
    process for the binning of cells according to spectral response and for final PV module efficiency measurements.

    The RaySphere system delivers the accuracy and resolution needed to measure and analyze the performance and stability of the flasher with ultralow jitter triggering electronics for timing the measurement to the flashes. Calibration has been validated by an accredited certification lab to ensure accurate detection, enabling evaluation and qualification of the spectral distribution of solar flashers and simulators according to the
    IEC 60904-9 (2007) standard.

    The system includes two thermoelectrically cooled detectors that perform repeatable and accurate spectral analysis of solar flashers from 350 to 1700 nm. A second version contains a single cooled detector for measurement to 1100 nm.

    • Intuitive graphical interface
    • Graphical and table display of classification results by wavelength bin
    • Output of actual spectra in mW/cm^2/nm
    • Output of actual measurement and triggering timing with +/- 41 μs resolution
    • Printable classification report
    • Three Year Warranty
