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.

Easy monitoring with weather sensors from Lufft

Easy monitoring with weather sensors from Lufft

Professional weather sensors form the heart of large solar plants supporting their operation and performance. Lufft was the first manufacturer to combine several sensors in one housing, bringing the largest multiparameter weather sensor family with 19 members into being. Many of them are well-suited for solar site assessment and continuous monitoring. The most commonly used one is the WS600 delivering data on temperature, air pressure, wind, relative humidity and precipitation. Through its open protocol, it can easily be attached to radiation sensors e.g. from Kipp&Zonen. Other models have an integrated Silicon, Second Class or Secondary Standard radiation sensor.
