IV curves characterization of solar cells – cost-efficient solutions

Keithley meters of the 24xx and 26xx series are the standard SMUs to measure solar cell IV curves. These systems can handle currents up to 3 A. However, today’s research normally deals with small area cells with low current levels. We now offer a cost-efficient solution that works with our well-established small-area solar simulators and can handle currents up to 200 mA. This is sufficient for most research applications. It offers 16-bit resolution and can also read out reference cells. The PT100 temperature sensor normally implemented in reference cells is also recorded. Values are corrected to 25 °C according to STC. A 4.3″ touch screen, USB interface and LabView VI guarantee easy implementation into your measurement setup. The system features a 0…5 V TTL signal (BNC termination) to control a solar simulator shutter, an adjustable ± 5 V bias voltage and 4-wire (Kelvin) input to improve measurement accuracy. 

The new LS0036 is an economic all-in-one solution which can easily compete with established Keithley systems.
