Test Your Wearables In Any Sun Or Ambient Light Conditions

Customers around the world will be wearing your technology and exposing it to different lighting conditions. You need to ensure the viability of your wearable tech, from the highest to lowest intensities, no matter if you are measuring in mW/cm2 or in lux. Once you manage to control these variables you are met with the next challenge, diverse geography. 

Light hitting the equator or at the south pole see two completely different intensities of sunlight. You need to find a creative way with your existing solar simulator to mimic the sun in these dissimilar locations. This creative change may lead to your light source unknowingly giving you false results.

What if you could test for anywhere in the world without worrying about instrumentation error? 

We at G2V have created our AAA LED solar simulator lineup to solve this problem. Our tunable technology was created for you to control the spectrum and intensity to match anywhere in the world at any given day or time.

Pico™ AAA LED Solar Simulator for Wearables

The list of requirements to test your wearables is growing and with it is your instrument fleet. The problem becomes that your lab space isn’t. So you replan, rearrange, and finally add in the new instrument. What if your next light source was small enough and portable enough to fit in an airplane carry on bag?
That would certainly make your lab arrangement easier.
The Pico™ small-area solar simulator allows you to concentrate on your research and not your instrument footprint while still keeping your lighting requirements ahead of your needs.

Sunbrick™ AAA LED Solar Simulator for Wearables

Do you want to examine the effect of solar radiation on prototypes larger than 2.5cm x 2.5cm?

Need to examine countless wearables in parallel on a production line?

The Sunbrick™ is ready to provide the same trusted small-scale confidence over a large area without performance compromises. Our instruments are created to be flexible, scalable, and reliable. You no longer have to choose between scaling your needs or having a reliable light source.

How Integrated Photovoltaics Are Powering Wearables

Battery life is a concern for any wearable technology. Modern thin-film solar cells are opening more doors to solar charging rather than relying on traditional wall plugs. Your new research ideas are ready to incorporate photovoltaic technology but need to know the most appropriate type.

Is the solar cell that’s good for clothing the same as what you’d want in your fitness tracker?

What are the pros and cons of each type?

What are the best practices for testing and assessing solar cell performance? 

In order to get you back to your research faster we have created comprehensive photovoltaic articles to save you time.

Case Study: Wearable Tech Developer Needed Scalable Wide Spectrum

Problem: A multinational wearable technology company was developing a product they needed to rapidly test under a wide spectrum.
Innovation: G2V provided them with a 2×2 unit Sunbrick array covering the spectral range from 400 nm – 1500 nm.
Outcome: The wearable tech company was able to conduct initial testing to validate their devices, and scale up their operations and experiments with additional Sunbrick arrays.

G2V's FAQs

No, we don’t need to know about your proprietary tech, and are happy to sign an NDA if that puts your mind at ease. We’ll ask you a few questions about the dimensions (both area and volume) you’re trying to illuminate, as well as what your most important specifications are, but we’ll respect your confidentiality while still delivering an excellent solar simulator.

Yes, we can! We can calibrate multiple simulators in tandem to ensure synchronicity before shipment to multiple sites. Additionally, we provide ongoing support to monitor individual simulator output to ensure alignment in testing results across your organization, no matter the physical geography.

Because G2V solar simulators were designed for maximum efficiency at 1-sun intensity, the drivers are not optimized for very low current outputs. However, low-flux solutions are still achievable in combination with neutral density filters. 

We recommend booking a consultation with our team of experts to ensure your requirements are exceeded.

Yes. In most cases if you can tell us the window material and thickness, we can calibrate your solar simulator to compensate for the glass transmission, so the irradiance your sample receives is the same high-accuracy spectrum we would normally produce without a window.

Our solar simulators create near UV and UV-Vis lights. For color and light fastness testing we recommend that you connect with one of our solar simulator experts to ensure we can meet your requirements.
