As technologies evolve, so do production and quality goals and regulations. Cognex vision systems empower manufacturers by providing the flexibility to adapt and quickly to a wide range of applications and continuous process improvements to minimize variability and reduce failures in the field.
Track individual modules through production and into the field by reading 2-D (Data Matrix) codes marked directly on panels as determined by the Photovoltaic-Automation Technical Committee of the SEMI industry organization.
Ensure uniform cell spacing in the finished module.
Center PV cells, minimizing the need for mechanical contact, and examine for defects while verifying the continuity and correct assembly of each string.
Ensure solder is present and at the correct location for attaching electrical plugs to the solar module.
Ensure screws are present and in the right position on the aluminum frame.
Perform a final quality inspection to ensure accurate cell spacing, construction and part placement.
