Rehm Thermal Systems Visu2 software brings new Best-in-class capabilities to Solar Cell Metallization

Rehm Thermal Systems recently announced the launch of an advanced new series of firing systems for solar cell metallization to complement their recently updated line of drying systems. The RFS and RFS-D Fast Firing Systems and the RDS 2100 and 3000 drying ovens feature Rehm's Visu2 software which drives a range of advanced process features and thermal control to enable PV manufacturers to move their processes to an entirely new level of efficiency and yield.

Visu2 incorporates process and product traceability tools, remote diagnostics and an extensive product library within an intuitively designed interface that dramatically accelerates set up time and reduces operator training. Extensive system documentation is available with a few keystrokes, and Visu2 offers password protected security levels as well as multilingual operations, data recording and maintenance logging.


Process and product traceability are supported via barcode and data recording of all relevant process parameters with time stamps. With its CCS (Capability Control System), Rehm Thermal Systems offers the ability to monitor process capability during the production process. CCS is based upon the measurement of temperatures in all of the oven's heat zones for each individual cell, as well as measurement of conveyor speed. CCS automatically translates the data into creates control charts where both momentary results and long-term trends are displayed as graphics.

Marc Dalderup, Rehm CCO explains further. "Though the Rehm brand name might not be widely recognized among PV cell manfacturers, we have over 200 curing and drying systems in production in factories worldwide right now. Rehm's twenty year history of advanced thermal engineering and best-in-class process philosophy are now being applied to our entire range of metallization systems. Our technology and experienced global support network offer significant opportunities for PV manufacturers to move to the next level of yield and efficiency."

SolarEdge Technologies - Solar Inverters, Power Optimizers and PV Monitoring

The SolarEdge PV inverter combines sophisticated digital control technology with efficient power conversion architecture to achieve superior solar power harvesting and best-in-class reliability. The fixed-voltage technology ensures the solar inverter is always working at its optimal input voltage over a wider range of string lengths and regardless of environmental conditions. A proprietary data monitoring receiver has been integrated into the inverter and aggregates the power optimizer performance data from each PV module. This data can be transmitted to the web and accessed via the SolarEdge Monitoring Portal for performance analysis, fault detection and troubleshooting of PV systems.
