KIC to Exhibit Products for Increased Cell Efficiency through Process Optimization at EU PVSEC 2010

KIC's partnership with the Balver Zinn group has expanded into the solar cell manufacturing industry with the company now selling KIC's SunKIC, e-Clipse and Spectrum products, which will be on display in booth L2/H4/A51a at the 25th EU PVSEC in Valencia, Spain from 6-9 September 2010.

San Diego August 2010 KIC, the leader of thermal process development and control products, and winner of multiple industry awards, announces that its partnership with the renowned Balver Zinn group has expanded into the solar cell manufacturing industry with the company now selling KIC's award-winning SunKIC, e-Clipse and Spectrum products. These have demonstrated up to 0.51 percent cell efficiency improvements through more accurate and repeatable profiling and process improvements.


Balver Zinn will display the KIC products in booth L2/H4/A51a at the 25th EU PVSEC in Valencia, Spain from 6-9 September 2010. Balver Zinn also will distribute free copies of research papers and application notes demonstrating the use and capabilities of these new products.

Until recently, cell manufacturers had only a limited ability to identify better furnace settings and to periodically adjust the furnaces when the process changed, for example after preventive maintenance. KIC's new technologies allow cell manufacturers to control their own thermal process results with significant productivity and profitability improvements.

Flex-Core - Flexible Split-Core Current Transformer

Flex-Core - Flexible Split-Core Current Transformer

The FCL model split-core current transformers have multiple benefits, including a flexible twisting motion for ease of application. Installing a split-core CT means there is no need to disconnect your primary conductor(s) which reduces downtime. Many customizations are available including extended secondary lead wire lengths, various outputs including 5A, 1A, 1VAC, and 0.333VAC, and custom rubber inserts to help center the CT and maintain accuracy. The FCL models can be used in applications up to 720VAC and have an operating frequency from 50Hz to 400Hz.
