Small-scale climatic chambers for parameter screening

Methodology

Use of various and standard climatic conditions for screening encapsulation parameters of PV modules new architectures in multiple test chambers

6x table-top climatic chambers
6x table-top climatic chambers

Caracteristics

*3x thermal cycling chambers
- Test conditions : -40°C to +85°C 6h-long cycles
- Net volume OK for 6x 40cmx40cm PV modules in each chamber

*3x damp heat chambers
- Test conditions : +85°C @85% Rh
- Net volume OK for 6x 40cmx40cm PV modules in each chamber
