Space Simulation Chamber (TVAC)

The main purposes of the Space Simulation Chamber is thermal cycling with/without artificial sun, thermal balancing with/without artificial sun and venting.

Temperature control: electrical and LN2

Technical details of sun simulator:

• Heat: 0.5 - 1.4kW/m²

• Illuminated diameter: ca. 1m

• Spectrum: 0.2 - 2.5µm

• Collimation angle: ±2°
