Photovoltaics

Photovoltaics

Renewable energy has become more and more attractive as an alternative to fossil fuels. Companies in the photovoltaics industry need to be ready for increased demand, rising quality awareness and stronger cost pressures due to growing competition. Digital camera systems offer support in automating production processes and quality controls, and in the process ultimately promote greater efficiency.

Basler cameras are extraordinarily well-suited to applications from the photovoltaics industry. Among their features:

  • High image quality and low noise levels
  • Strong sensitivity, especially in the NIR range
  • Excellent price/performance ratio

Typical Areas of Use and Suitable Cameras

  • Wafer inspection

    The areas of use of cameras in wafer inspection include control of the wafer material and/or surface quality, especially regarding (micro) cracks, humps, unevenness or general coating failures.
