Class AAA Solar Simulator

The LSH-7520 is certified AAA rated to IEC 60904-9, JIS-C8912, and ASTM-E927-10 for Spectral Match, Non-Uniformity of Irradiance, and Temporal Stability. Oriel puts each LED based system through rigorous testing for all aspects of the standards to ensure compliance and provides a certificate of calibration.

Breadboard sold separately.
The VeraSol system includes a remote software application, VeraSol Replicator, to aid the user in setting custom spectrums and to perform system functional tests.

Independent LED Control

This innovative design independently drives multiple LEDs at 19 individual wavelengths spaced over the spectrum from 400 nm to 1100 nm to ensure a spectral match meeting Class A certification. The independent control of each LED allows the user to tune the output to the specific requirements of the test. This adjustment can be done at the front panel for the entire spectrum or individual band adjustment. The user can adjust individual LED output through the USB port. These spectral matches can be saved as a preset value in the control instrument.

Replicate Geographic Location Solar Spectra

VeraSol Replicator gives the user a method to generate a solar spectrum based on geographic locations, as well as date and time of day. This spectrum is used to generate a VeraSol LED spectrum, replicating the solar spectrum. Solar simulation has entered a new era. We believe you will continue to find features and benefits of the VeraSol that will improve your testing capabilities.

VeraSol-2 System Components

The VeraSol-2 solar simulator includes the LSS-7120 Controller, the LSH-7520 LED Light Source, the CC720 - LED Controller Cable, and a Vertical Height Adjustment Assembly. You can mount the system directly to an optical table or breadboard, or purchase an optional breadboard for mounting.

10,000 Hour LED Lifetime

The typical lifetime of LEDs of over 10,000 hours removes the need to change expensive and hazardous bulbs. The LEDs come up to a stable operating power within 100 msec. This allows the unit to be shut off between tests without having to wait for the lamp to stabilize or sacrificing the integrity of the test results. This results in an effective lamp usage time several times over a conventional lamp and eliminates the need for shutters on the output.

Flexible Light Source Orientation

The use of solid state LEDs and robust optical mounting hardware makes it possible to orient the head in any position to fit your application needs. To aid in positioning the light source, a variable height adjustment mount is included along with a laser pointer indicator to ensure your test cell is always at the correct placement under the head. The flexibility of the VeraSol trade; Solar Simulator allows the user to tailor the simulator to the test and not the test to the solar simulator.
