Product briefing outline: mbj-Solutions is expanding its product portfolio with the SolarModule EL-Lab system designed for module testing. mbj-Solutions is focusing on the development of electroluminescence (EL) inspection systems for in-line and stand alone use along the photovoltaic production process.

Problem: Micro cracks on solar modules are mostly invisible to the human eye, yet present a significant risk of decreasing the module's performance. Micro cracks can happen anywhere and anytime, during production, transportation or installation.

Solution: Using electroluminescence imaging provides valuable information about the overall quality of the solar module under test, either during the production process before lamination, at the end of the production process, after shipment or right before installation at customer site. mbj's product family Solar Module for EL testing of module have all the same unique mechanical design which makes it very flexible and very easy to operate. Roller tables provide effortless loading and unloading of the modules which are facing down during the entire procedure. This design allows inspecting framed and non-laminated modules in various sizes and formats with only one machine and without any prior adjustments. The systems are capturing high resolution images of each solar cell. The images are displayed on the user interface in a matrix view and the operator can grade the module as either “good” or “reject” depending on the defects visible in the images. Many useful software features like an automatic generated Microsoft Word® report are part of the system. The difference between the EL-Lab system and the EL-Basic it just the speed. While the EL-Lab version captures the all the images in less than can 90 sec, the Basic version can capture the images 3 times faster. An upgrade of the EL-Lab version to EL-Basic version is possible, which makes this solution sustainable.

Applications: Designed for the use in laboratories or in smaller factories. Solar modules of different stages during production process can be inspected by the system, e.g. panels before lamination, after lamination or framed modules. The system is designed for Mono- and multi crystalline silicon solar modules. Module sizes of min. 600 x 600 mm, max. 1000 x 2000 mm (W x H)

Platform: Many useful software features like an automatic generated Microsoft Word® report are part of the system. The difference between the EL-Lab system and the EL-Basic it just the speed. While the EL-Lab version captures the all the images in less than can 90 sec, the Basic version can capture the images 3 times faster. An upgrade of the EL-Lab version to EL-Basic version is possible, which makes this solution sustainable.

Availability: Currently available.

The solar tracker market continues to mature at breakneck speed, with designs and component selections becoming ever-more complex in the pursuit of better project economics. But a more simplistic design could deliver a triple benefit of lower Capex, EPC and Opex costs. This webinar will set out the ideal single axis tracker design for utility-scale solar farms. The design leapfrogs from decades of experience, with a comprehensive understanding and attention to the three cost structures of Capex, EPC and Opx. Sun and Steel Solar has prototyped a single axis tracker designed to deliver up to US$0.03/W in real savings compared to existing single axis trackers on the market. That’s US$30 million for every gigawatt deployed.

The 10th edition of the famous Metallization and Interconnection Workshop, MIW2021, will take place in the Thor Central venue in Genk, Belgium, on Monday, November 15, and Tuesday, November 16, 2021 as a face-to-face meeting. We are longing for direct exchange of knowledge and ideas after a long time. Hopefully you can be part of it! But of course, the organizors will keep an eye on the evolution of the Covid pandemic. It will be assess carefully, whether the workshop can be held without major risks or excessive restrictions. We are looking forward to exciting talks, discussions and meetings and to welcoming you in Genk!
