Universal Photovoltaic Testing System - UPTS 1Amp(without Light Source)

Universal Photovoltaic Testing System - UPTS 1Amp(without Light Source)


  • Dyesol pre-printed TEC8 & TEC15 Glass Plates
  • Dyesol DSC Laboratory Solution


Use Dyesol’s Universal Photovoltaic Testing System to measure the current and voltage outputs of your dye solar cell.

Description & Benefits

Dyesol’s Universal Photovoltaic Testing System (UPTS) is a complete package system encompassing: 1) Light Source and Chamber, 2) Proprietary Testing Software, 3) Keithley 2420 SourceMeter, and 4) Laptop Computer. This system can be purchased without the light Source and is easily compatible with other light sources via the provided connection cables.

The UPTS has been developed specifically for use with Keithley 2400 series SourceMeter’s for the testing of photovoltaic devices, cells or tiles. The proprietary software allows for the obtained results to be directly output into Microsoft Excel® software. The software allows the user to make single IV (current, voltage) scans for evaluation. The UPTS’s software allows the user to determine the delay in the Source Measure Cycle which enables the measurement of standard silicon photovoltaic devices as well as third generation photovoltaic devices such as dye sensitised solar cells.

The software incorporates a 9 point polynomial regression calculation on the raw data to ensure a more accurate reading of the Voc (open circuit voltage) point. Graphical representation of the power curve as well as the characteristic IV data is displayed on the front panel.
