(Product number: RE540E)
In countries where solar radiation cannot be relied upon, the Optional Solar Simulator allows The RE540 unit and solar panel to be investigated in detail under controlled conditions. The full equatorial solar heat flux can be simulated with the Optional RE540E. The solar simulator consists of 2 banks of 6 x 500W floodlights that are arranged in 2 banks of 6 lamps giving 2 x 3kW output. 1 x top bank of 6 lamps (3kW), 1 x Lower bank of 6 lamps (3kW). The lamps are supplied by two separate power leads and power circuits. Each circuit has an individual RCCB and switch/circuit breaker. This allows the two power leads to be connected to two separate mains outlets. In most countries a single power outlet in a laboratory is capable of supplying up to 3kW, hence the arrangement.
