Camera-Guided Solar Cell Manufacturing
ETTLINGEN, Germany, Sept. 2, 2009 – Vision Components GmbH enables cost-efficient and powerful production and quality control in the solar industry. Combined with the VC Solar Solution software library, the company’s network-compatible smart cameras form an autonomous robot guidance solution for solar cell production. The compact vision systems can easily be retrofitted into existing installations. They process several images simultaneously and transmit data in real time. Inspection tasks include detecting wafer positions, measuring geometric dimensions, monitoring surfaces and detecting damaged edges.

The company offers a wide range of performance-graded, fully integrated intelligent cameras for combination with the VC Solar Solution software library. It has developed the VC4067/NIR near-infrared camera primarily for use with the software. Thanks to a unique sensor operation mode, the photosensitive technology ensures precise images at wavelengths up to 1100 nm.

VisionComponents_SolarSolut.jpgThe camera is suitable for use in electroluminescence quality control tasks. It reliably detects and identifies defects such as micro cracks, shunts and disconnected fingers. The resolution equals that of similar systems on the market without integrated intelligence. Unlike those, the cost-efficient VC solutions include all image processing electronics and do not require cooling systems.

Featuring an integrated 400-MHz processor from Texas Instruments, the VC4067/NIR has a computing power of 3200 million instructions per second. The ?-in. CCD sensor delivers 1280 × 1024-pixel resolution and provides a maximum frame rate of 14 fps and a freely programmable exposure time from 5 µs to 17 s. The camera is supplied with RS-232 and Ethernet interfaces and an external trigger input that enables jitter-free image capture, even at high reading frequencies. The standard configuration also includes four digital PLC inputs and four outputs, and an SXGA video output.
