Spire Ships Its 250th 4600SLP Simulator

Spire Corporation (Nasdaq: SPIR), a diversified global company providing solar photovoltaic ("PV") equipment and systems announced today that it has completed and shipped its 250 th Spi-Sun Simulator TM 4600SLP ("4600SLP"). The 4600SLP provides a light source that closely matches the solar spectrum to measure electrical characteristics and output power ratings of PV modules. The system combines International Standard Class AAA performance with a unique long pulse-width that permits more accurate measurement of thin film and high efficiency crystalline silicon modules. The unit is also available as part of an integrated Module QA Tester, which performs high voltage isolation and ground continuity testing as well.

Roger G. Little, Chairman and CEO of Spire Corporation, stated “Sun simulators are among the most critical pieces of equipment in the module manufacturing process. They are used to determine module power, which directly influences a module’s selling price. Therefore, accuracy and reliability of this equipment is paramount to a manufacturer’s success. Spire’s Sun Simulators are considered the gold standard in the PV industry since they offer the highest levels of accuracy and product throughput. The 4600SLP’s versatility has made it a staple for both large-scale module manufacturers and certification laboratories worldwide. Shipment of our 250 th unit is a testament to the industry’s acceptance of our equipment and of Spire as the world leader in PV module performance measurement.”

Mr. Little concluded, “We have provided the industry with over 600 simulators since we began offering PV module metrology instruments. We continue to maintain our leadership position with the introduction of our new advanced 5600SLP simulator, and continue to develop our expertise in metrology by offering state-of-the-art equipment.”
