KOPEL has developed the first probe-bar screening of multi-wire interconnection of busbarless solar cells and is showcasing the technology at SNEC 2018.
The probe system incorporates its patent pending Flexible Spring Suspension (FSS) system, which provides greater measurement stability and data reliability in R&D and production applications, which also benefit from durability and data repeatability.
The new probe also provides security against the creation of microcracks in the cells being tested and can therefore handle the trend towards thinner and larger wafers, notably for N-type mono solar wafers. The system can therefore operate in a high-speed mode as well as maintain cell alignment accuracy for improved measurement repeatability of IV measurements.
Going into its fifth year over 200 delegates from 150 companies and 20 countries representing the PV supply chain will gather (virtually, due to COVID-19) for 3 days to discuss the technology roadmaps for PV cell advancement in GW markets. The scope of the event has been expanded this year, to cover developments in wafer supply and thin-film investments and technologies alongside all the regular benefits to all stakeholders tracking PV technology and investment trends for the next 5 years.
