DSC00177Last week, the first BiSon 6 sunsensors for solar concentrator applications where succesfully assembled, showing that the positioning of the photodiodes can be done automatically with the required accuracy, the pins can be bonded and the final unit is able to survive at least 10 cycles from +125 degrees C to -55 degrees C without any problems found.

This means we are ready for product introduction at the CPV-10 in Albuquerque NM.

Although further qualification testing will need to follow to prove (beyond a shadow of a doubt) that these units are able to sustain 10.000 thermal cycles between +70 and -20 degree C without any problems, we are confident that they will survive these tests.
