The high precision MP-180 I-V tracer is the ultimate research instrument for Photovoltaic cell development and quality inspection purposes. Its wide input range (µA - A) makes the MP-180 a unique all-round measurement device suitable to test all types and sizes of Photovoltaic cells.

When used in combination with a Pulsed or Continuous Sun Simulator, I-V curve measurements can be fully automated using the built-in trigger function either to synchronize with the flash or control of the sun simulator shutter. The MP-180 is operated by a PC using advanced software functions for visualizing data, data management and to calculate specific cell parameters e.g. Rs, Rsh and other characteristic values.

Connecting with the optional switching units will allow for the configuration …
