Quality control in production lines of PV modules is an essential factor for long-lasting cutting edge products. Electroluminescence images, high pot testing and power measurements are the most important parts of the quality control.

Nonetheless, these aspects often limit the output of the production line as it was not possible to automate all processes were possible.

For our partner H.A.L.M GmbH in Frankfurt, we have developed an automated contacting unit (ACU) that allows cycle times of 15 seconds. This can lead to production rates of 4,000 modules per day and above.

Our PLC communicates to upstream and downstream machines, indicates the status of the machine and is capable of indicating any problems with the supplies.

Together with the module flasher from H.A.L.M GmbH, it is a unique tool for high module output and reliable power measurements.
