Quality Packages for Photovoltaik Modules
PI Photovoltaik-Institut Berlin AG presents new PV testing packages at Intersolar in Munich (19-21/6/2013). These bundles - called “Quality Packages” - are helping manufactures, distributors and EPCs to evaluate modules quickly and find possible weaknesses early. The aim of the test packages is to enable rapid quality control on a spot check basis.
Based on vast field experience, these test sequences will check for critical characteristics that are currently not part of IEC certifications for PV. In the setup of a PV power plant the purchase of modules is the main part of the investment. Feasibility and profitability of any PV project are directly linked to the yield and lifetime of the modules. Conventional testing schemes are slow and are lacking some essential features. The quality packages of the PI-Berlin are providing an effective a tool that enables a better and faster control of durability and performance of the products to be purchased.
PI Photovoltaik-Institut Berlin AG offers the whole range of services from sample selection (including factory inspection), to testing and reporting. The services are carried out in the accredited testing labs of Photovoltaik-Institut Berlin AG in Germany (Berlin) or in China (Suzhou) - according to the location and requests of the customer.
PI Photovoltaik-Institut Berlin AG is accredited as a DIN/EN/ISO/IEC 17025:2005 testing lab for the PV industry, IEC-accredited for all tests of IEC 61215, IEC 61646, IEC 61730 and accredited for UL 1703.
