PV Module Development Laboratory

Co-located with the PV Module Testing Laboratory at CleanTech Park, SERIS’ 300 m2 PV Module Development Laboratory houses an industrial PV module production line for industry-scale PV module R&D and related services.

PV Module pilot line at SERIS

  • This machine is used for automatically soldering metal ribbons onto solar cells and interconnecting solar cells into strings. Conventional stringers are able to interconnect solar cells with up to 3 busbars. SERIS’ customised TT1800 stringer is capable of interconnecting solar cells with 3, 4, 5 or 6 busbars. Both full-size cells and half-cut cells can be processed. The TT1800 stringer enables SERIS to work on next-generation high-performance multi-busbar PV modules.

  • This station is used for assembling the various layers of materials (glass, encapsulants, strings of cells, backsheet) which will be laminated together in a subsequent process. Another task of this station is to interconnect the various strings of cells, by soldering cross connectors.

  • This machine performs the lamination process, in which all the individual layers of the module are bonded together.

  • This machine performs electroluminescence imaging of PV modules to detect cracks and other defects in the solar cells.

  • This station is used for manually repairing strings of solar cells if, for example, one cell in the string gets broken.
