Standards for Solar Panel Manufacturing

  • Indium Corporation
  • Solar

  • It's about time!  Recently the IPC has proposed the following subcommittees for solar standardization:



    • Acceptability Guidelines for Solar Panel Lamination


    • Specification for Materials Used in Tabbing and Stringing


    • Acceptability Criteria for Tabbing and Stringing


    • In-Process Test Methods for Solar Panels


    • Visual Acceptance Criteria for Solar Panels – Final Assembly


    • Guidelines for Final Test with an Emphasis on Flash Test


    • Design Guidelines for Tabbing and Stringing





    These future standards are a very important step in the development of our industry because they bring together an otherwise secretive (intellectual property) and divided industry (diverse technologies).
