CHICAGO – Atlas Material Testing Technology now offers a complete portfolio of testing services to evaluate the performance, durability and reliability of solar cells and modules. Atlas’ ISO 17025-accredited laboratory in Phoenix, AZ, offers testing programs for full-scale PV arrays, BIPV, complete modules and individual PV cells in a confidential and secure test site.

Atlas’ Solar Test Center capabilities include many elements of qualification testing to industry standards such as IEC 61215, IEC 61646 and UL 1703. As product development projects expand in scope and expense, testing is required during the R&D process to validate performance and durability. Atlas can perform many of the individual tests required in these standards or custom, proprietary tests to help customers understand a product prior to initiating a costly and time-consuming certification program.

The new Solar Test Center also offers a range of testing options for in-situ testing of complete systems.
