Let There Be Light

Confronted with the ultimate test of their skills and expertise, GEM came up with a precision solution for a one-off, high-tech scanner designed by TS-Space Systems, specialists in solar simulation equipment.

Knowing there was no room for error, we needed to devise a sure-fire way of linking 112 highly sensitive diodes to their respective connections – and get it right, first time.

Despite the limited work-space and the attention to detail required for a three-way connection for each diode, our tests revealed perfect soldering on the TS Uniformity Mapping unit, an expensive piece of kit which measures beam uniformity when setting up solar simulators to duplicate the properties of light in space.
