Philippines – March 2014 – Dymek Philippines receives an order for two(2) Tau Science IRIS Hot Spot Tester from a leading solar cell manufacturer, IRIS-210 and IRIS-220 Hot Spot Tester.
Tau Science’s IRIS product line screens for electrical shunt defects in cells which will lead to localized hotspots – a leading cause of PV cell performance problems and module degradation.
IRIS combines time-resolved thermography and current-voltage measurements to generate reliable hotspot information in fractions of a second. The system automatically generates Pass/Fail results and transfers them to the handler via 24VDC industrial interface. Full time-resolved data (a frame-by-frame movie of the cell as it heats) may be reviewed at the end of the measurement.
Tau Science was the first company to bring a turnkey hotspot inspection system to the market and has built up years of experience delivering solutions to PV manufactures around the world.
