Singulus Applied sciences, a German vacuum coating tools producer, has launched Generis PET, a high-throughput system for edge passivation of minimize photo voltaic cells. The corporate claims that this technique could be simply built-in into current module and cell manufacturing traces.

The corporate says that making use of a passivation layer to the sides of varied cell codecs, together with half-cells, multi-cells, and shingle cells, can enhance photo voltaic cell effectivity by as much as 1.0% in comparison with untreated cells. This enchancment is achieved by minimizing the negative effects of minimize edges.

“The machine can course of half cells, many cells and in addition cell cells (shingle cells) after slicing,” mentioned the CEO of the corporate, Stefan Rinck. “Our distinctive tray design permits the processing of hundreds of cell components per tray with excessive packing density. Within the course of, passivation layers are exactly utilized to the minimize edges with out ‘y negative effects on cell contents.”

Generis PET gives the flexibleness of each batch and inline processing and is appropriate with any crystalline photo voltaic cell expertise. The system is at present out there for testing and sampling.

Singulus Applied sciences has partnered with German module tools producer M10 Photo voltaic Gear GmbH to optimize the shingle cell module course of. The corporate will display this expertise at Intersolar Europe this month.
