Christopher Associates' Unisonik Selected for Photovoltaic Panels

A Bay area thin film photovoltaic manufacturing company recently adopted the Japan Unix ‘Unisonik' soldering system for its large panel soldering needs.

Christopher Associates announces that a Bay area thin film photovoltaic manufacturing company recently adopted the Japan Unix ‘Unisonik' soldering system for its large panel soldering needs.


Several different methods of attaching PV ribbon were investigated, and the Unisonik was selected for its ease of use, flexibility and low cost of ownership.

The Unisonik system, developed exclusively by Japan Unix, uses a proprietary combination of heat and vibration to allow soldering to previously difficult substrates. Stainless steel, aluminum, coated or uncoated glass, and many other substrates that were difficult to work with in the past now are standard processes due to this advanced system.

The Unisonik-M uses ultrasonic waves of 60 kHz to remove oxidation, diffuse the metal into the substrate and reduce voids in the solder joints. The Unisonik-M system is a manual system for small applications or lab work, and the Unisonik-F system is a fully automated robotic soldering system for use in production environments.

Uniquely suited for soldering to difficult substrates, the Unisonik has shown excellent results in multiple areas outside the Photovoltaic manufacturing process as well.

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.
