• Introduction01
    • Photovoltaic Laboratory

    • Suntech Photovoltaic Products Inspection & Testing Center is an internal independent testing organization specialized in inspection and testing of solar photovoltaic products, which is built with the investment from Wuxi Suntech Power Co., Ltd., completely complies with the management requirements of ISO/IEC17025General Requirements for Capacities of Inspection and Calibration Laboratories(CNAS-CL01Rules for Recognition of Capacities of Inspection and Calibration Laboratories), and has the world’s leading inspection capability in the photovoltaic industry.


      The Testing Center is divided into two parts: the indoor, with the area of 1,800m2, and the outdoor, with the area of 3,000m2, under which are four teams respectively specialized in Performance Testing, Safety Inspection, Environment Monitoring and Outdoor Power Station. It has ushered in over 100 sets of advanced instruments and equipment at home and abroad, possessed cutting-edge testing equipment including high-precision pulse and steady-state solar simulators, several walk-in environmental chambers, and portable I/V testers, and successfully and independently developed the state-of-the-art experimental installations such as outdoor remote data collection system, outdoor meteorological monitoring system, hail tester, and mechanical load, which all have been accepted by authoritative institutions; additionally, it is capable of independently completing the inspection and testing items required by the international standard tests.


      This Testing Center has built outdoor power stations for testing, respectively in Wuxi (east China) and Xining (west China), for the purpose of research on the long-term reliability of photovoltaic modules and materials under different climatic conditions and on the actual outdoor generating capacities of modules. The outdoor testing data can be monitored in a real-time way via the Internet.
