Armstrong Optical now supplies the automated optronic infrared test system, PV-LIT, manufactured by InfraTec. The system has been developed for photovoltaic testing.

PV-LIT incorporates VarioCam High Definition and ImageIR 9300 thermographic cameras. It is designed for serial as well as individual testing of solar cells and complete solar modules with high precision.

The PV-LIT system enables testing for several different types of defect. Short cycle times of less than a second combined with reliable, continuous operation mean the system can be operated in serial production environments.

Depending on the individual task and customer requirements, it is possible to operate the system with either uncooled or cooled camera systems. The uncooled VarioCam High Definition provides 2,048 x 1,536 pixel resolution, while the cooled ImageIR 9300 gives 1,280 x 1,024 pixels.
