Accelerated Life Testing Lab


Climatic chamber for accelerated life​ tests

The climatic chamber (1.3 x 1.5 x 2.2 m) simulates accelerated life cycles to evaluate the degradation of the performance of industrial products such as photovoltaic modules, plastics and electronic components. Cycles include controlled conditions of temperature and humidity.​


Climatic chamber

The Angelantoni PV4500 climatic chamber incorporates a system of humidification, refrigeration, heating and dehumidification to fully control the conditions of temperature and humidity to which the test sample is subjected. Temperatures of -40° C to + 90° C and relative humidity from 20% to 95% can be reproduced.​


Testing on photovoltaic modules and other component

The chamber can accommodate up to 10 standard-sized photovoltaic modules. The tests it can perform comply with the IEC 61215:2016 international standards and simulate the environmental conditions to which a photovoltaic system is exposed during its life cycle, accelerating the times of its natural degradation. It is also possible to test plastic materials and electronic components.

Company service expertise

Laboratory tests can become part of a broader collaboration between research and business that starts with the design of a prototype and ends with the creation of a product ready for the market, including simulation phases, specific tests and optimisation. Collaborating with Eurac Research researchers means the assurance of consolidated know-how, developed in international networks and applied in numerous projects with local companies that focus on quality and reliability of modules, the study of the solar resource and the integration of photovoltaics within buildings and networks. ​
