Schreiner ProTech, headquartered in Munich, Germany, has introduced a self-adhesive pressure compensation seal (PCS) designed to provide solar module junction boxes with long-lasting protection against severe environmental conditions.
The company developed a new splash-proof PCS membrane vent material that delivers permanent weather resistance and prevents the intrusion of water, oil and dust within the junction box housing, even after the component has been submerged into water for 30 minutes. Condensation, specifically when formed in the photovoltaic module and transferred into the junction box, can decrease power output and corrode electrical contacts, resulting in safety issues.
Ideally suited for use with solar power systems, Schreiner ProTech's new water-repellent membrane ventilates solar module junction boxes, thus reducing the harmful effects of condensation within the housing while offering reliable protection to PV modules that is vital to improving their longevity, according to the company.
