Solar & Environmental chamber

Details This is a large walk-in environmental chamber (563 cubic feet) which can be used for ambient sample temperature control between -67 to 85oC.Humidity can also be controlled between 20% to 95% RH. The solar simulator is a 6 kW gas discharge bulb which can deliver irradiance levels of 1000W/m2 (or more) with AM 1.5G spectrum. Extraterrestrial solar spectral radiation AM 0 is also possible with removal of lamp filters. A pyranometer is available for measurement of Global Horizontal Irradiance and pyrheliometer for measurement of Direct Normal Irradiance are available alongside T-type thermocouples and automated datalogging.
