Six Major Advantages

  1. Microsolar300 Xenon Lamp Light Source, a product based on the core technology of Solar Simulator (TSCS) ceramic xenon lamp light source, makes experiments more accurate, reliable, and repeatable, improving comparability as well! 

  2. Microsolar300 Xenon Lamp Light Source offers a constant current output mode to ensure a consistent power supply. The built-in optical light feedback system adjusts irradiance intensity in real-time based on the set irradiance value when the constant illuminance output mode is activated, ensuring precise control within the specified value over a relative time, enhancing experimental accuracy.

  3. Microsolar300 Xenon Lamp Light Source can achieve high-energy density and long-term continuous irradiation. Combined with various filter combinations, it can evaluate catalyst improvement in a narrow spectral range and overall catalytic effects. It can also be used with various reactors (systems) to perform online and offline analysis experiments in solid, liquid, and gas phases, expanding research beyond the Earth's atmosphere's solar spectrum. 

  4. Microsolar300 Xenon Lamp Light Source features a design that utilizes microprocessor technology and fully digital circuit management. The light output of this system can rotate 360° along the optical axis direction, allowing horizontal and vertical illumination of the xenon lamp light source. The highly concentrated xenon lamp light source box can meet the requirements for multidirectional illumination experiments in small spaces. 

  5. Microsolar300 Xenon Lamp Light Source has a comprehensive thermal management system. It adopts a new copper and aluminum combined heat dissipation structure, carefully optimized axial heat dissipation design, and combines multiple methods such as shutdown fan heat dissipation delay and temperature sensor monitoring control. It provides excellent heat dissipation, making the xenon lamp light source box compact and flexible, achieving excellent overall performance. 

  6. Microsolar300 Xenon Lamp Light Source, based on excellent heat dissipation design, effectively prolongs the xenon lamp light source's service life and improves its light emission efficiency. The accumulated usage time of the xenon lamp is displayed on the LCD screen.
