Solar cell panel inspection

JAI industrial CCD/CMOS cameras for solar cell inspection 

JAI CCD/CMOS cameras for solar cell panel inspection:
The increased global awareness on how alternative energy sources can make a considerable contribution to lowering the outlet of CO2 and other harmful emissions from energy production/energy consumption processes, has in recent years moved the solar cell industry from a pioneer and research related industry to becoming much more industrial in its approach to manufacturing.

The increased demand for solar cell panels now emerging from many different industries along with a growing number of solar cell manufactures has turned the industry towards higher-volume automated manufacturing, where product quality assurance has become a vital element in the production process.

Again, this has increased the demand for digital automated imaging inspection systems that will help ensure a high and uniform quality of the solar cell panels at the end of the production line.

By introducing automated imaging systems in the production process, solar cell manufactures will benefit from higher production yields and lower scarp values, and end-users will benefit from higher efficiency, longer life and lower maintenance costs of products and buildings where solar cell panels are an integrated part.

JAI CCD cameras for solar cell inspection systems
JAI supports the solar cell industry by offering high quality CCD cameras that our customers integrate into advanced automated imaging inspection system. JAI has many years of experience in giving consultancy to manufactures of complete solar cell inspection systems in choosing the right JAI CCD camera for their systems.

The table below shows a selection of JAI CCD cameras recommended for solar cell inspection systems.
