    Isra Solar Vision Presents a New Generation EL Inspection for Solar Modules

    Isra Solar Vision presents a new generation EL inspection for solar modules. The technology provides fast electroluminescence inspection with accurate defect classification resulting in the low false detection and false downgrading rates. Solar manufacturers benefit from the application of the new solarscan-Yieldmaster  EL inspection through a reduced production of defective or underperforming cells and modules. This leads to a three percent increase in maximum-quality yield and remarkable cost savings through less material loss. This way, the innovative inspection technologies support the PV industry in fully exploiting all cost-saving and efficiency-raising potentials.
