Chicago, IL, 09 August 2012 – Atlas Material Testing Technology, a global leader in weathering testing and equipment for the solar industry, will exhibit at Solar Power International 2012, September 10-13, 2012 in Orlando, Florida (Booth #2756). The SPI Convention is North America's largest and most important solar business-to-business event. 

Atlas 25+®

Atlas 25+ is a proprietary, multi-dimensional durability test program designed to subject photovoltaic modules to the environmental degradation stresses that can be expected over long-term service. The test program also provides a crucial missing component to the IEC type design qualification tests.

Solar Technology by Atlas®

Atlas offers integrated, ready-to-use test chambers for various solar and environmental applications. Solar Technology by Atlas combines extensive experience in environmental simulation with metal halide lighting technology. Will your product hold up to your warranty claims? If your applications are photovoltaic related, 3D automotive or plastics components or electronics products, Atlas' wide array of solar environmental chambers can meet industry standards such as IEC 61215 and IEC 61646 or DIN 75 220, just to name a few.


The SUNTEST XXL/XXL+ is Atlas' largest flatbed xenon instrument. Its 3081 cm2 specimen tray is perfect for testing three dimensional parts and large components like crystalline and thin-film mini modules. The instrument meets or exceeds all primary internationally recognized weathering standards. 

Come and see for yourself how it helps answer the tough questions: 

  • How long will your product last?
  • Can you stand by your product claims 100%?

XenoCal Solar Sensor

This sensor is designed for easy and accurate measurement and calibration of a variety of light sources including UV-preconditioning test conditions in accordance with IEC testing standards for crystalline (IEC 61215) and thin-film(IEC 61646) PV modules.
