Spire electroluminescence solar module tester provides advanced metrology

Spire’s Spi-EL tester provides high-resolution inspection for solar modules in production. The Spi-EL series of solar module testers use electroluminescence (EL) to identify microcracks and other invisible defects in modules.

February 23, 2011 – BUSINESS WIRESpire Corporation (Nasdaq: SPIR), a global solar company providing capital equipment and turn-key manufacturing lines to produce photovoltaic (PV) modules, introduced an Click to Enlargeadvanced metrology product, the Spi-EL electroluminescence solar module tester, at the SNEC 5th (2011) International Photovoltaic Power Generation and Exhibition in Shanghai, China.

The Spi-EL series of solar module testers use electroluminescence (EL) to identify microcracks and other invisible defects in modules. The testers utilize cooled near-infrared charge-coupled device camera technology to image each solar cell with resolutions less than 200µm per pixel, the equivalent of a 60 megapixel image for an entire module.

Spire is exhibiting the new product at SNEC, at the Shanghai New International Expo Center, booth E3-003.
