Solar- and environmental simulation

Image picture of the sun laboratory
  • Pulsed and steady-state solar simulation
  • High UV irradiation (up to 250 W/m²)
  • Cooling down to -75 ºC
  • Weathering: rain, salt mist, snow, ice, dust and sand
  • Simulation of heavy mechanical loads caused by wind, snow or hail
