Bedford MA (SPX) May 27, 2010
Spire has announced that Underwriters Laboratories (UL) has once again selected Spire's world class SPI-Sun Simulator 4600SLP as a standard to test and certify PV modules. Already in use at UL facilities in the United States, China, and Germany, the Spire Simulator will now serve as the primary test equipment gauge at the new UL facility in Bangalore, India.
Spire's simulators have become the benchmark for PV module testing with a majority of the world's manufactured modules tested with Spire simulators, both crystalline silicon and thin films.
With a Class AAA rating, Spire's simulators can provide high-volume production with a low cost of ownership.
Spire's proprietary method of controlling the simulator's pulse or flash length, large irradiance range, and superior spectral control, allow test labs the ability to measure modules beyond their own test standards and understand critical aspects of their performance.
"We have set the bar very high with our SPI-Sun Simulators," said Roger G. Little, Chairman and CEO of Spire Corporation.
"I am pleased to know that test agencies such as UL, NREL, TUV, FSEC, CSA, KIER, Intervac, and Bodycote all use our simulators as their standard."

High Efficiency Concentrator Solar Cells And Moduls
Munich, Germany (SPX) May 26, 2010
Solar energy will play a crucial role in the energy mix of tomorrow as solar energy is available in unlimited quantities. With the aid of concentrator solar cells, even more sunlight can be converted into electricity. Climate change and ever scarcer fossil resources will determine the energy mix of the future. Solar energy will play an integral role in this regard. Dr. Andreas Bett and Dr. ... read more
