Technology tests PV modules

Atlas® Material Testing Technology LLC has introduced XR360, a technology for accelerated exposure testing of complete photovoltaic (PV) modules.

XR360 succeeds the company's XR260 and reportedly integrates recent developments in environmental chamber and xenon solar simulation technology. The technology consists of a chamber equipped with four water-cooled, high-performance, long-arc lamps and features full climatic functionality and an expanded utility designed to run International Electrotechnical Commission tests not requiring light. It is capable of testing PV modules as large as 1.9 by 1.4 m.
