San Diego-based KIC has introduced the e-Clipse, a solar cell thermocouple (TC) attachment fixture.
The e-Clipse promises fast and convenient TC attachment, as well as repeatable profile readings, the company says. The product features four spring-loaded TCs within a lightweight fixture that also holds the solar wafer. The TCs have disk-shaped beads, rather than traditional spherical-shaped beads.
These flattened TCs offer a more reliable contact to the surface of the solar wafer, as well as repeatable profile readings, according to KIC. To operate, the user simply slides any relevant solar wafer into the fixture, and the TCs seat themselves automatically.
