Standard connectors for crystalline and thin-film modules

Standard connectors for crystalline and thin-film modulesConnector strips and cross connectors are important functional components of solar modules. Cell breakage rates and resistors are the most significant items that are affected by these connectors. Exactly adapting the cross-section or the dimensions with regard to the requirements for the respective module type can significantly influence the performance.

The development of cells that perform at even higher levels places high demands on the connection technology. For over 25 years SCHLENK has provided high precision connectors for the photovoltaic industry and is a market and technology leader in this segment.

We provide a complete range of connectors for both crystalline and thin-film modules. Due to our cutting process, the dimensional spectrum is unlimited. With the Light Harvesting String (LHS) SCHLENK has succeeded in developing a cell connector that can significantly increase the performance of the solar modules. For more detailed information, see sep.

Our international distribution and service network and our experienced "solar team" make us an expert partner for the photovoltaic supply industry all over the world.

Schlenk connectors are available on reels and also with side plates.

Cell connectors - Crystalline modules

The development of even thinner cells that perform at even higher levels places high demands on the connection technology. SCHLENK connectors are produced with rolled cladding technology, which ensures an even soldering layer across the entire width and length of the connector. With this specialized production process, the risk of cell breakage is significantly reduced.

Cross connectors - Crystalline modules

Cross connectors create the connection with the junction box and, for this reason, this solar module component cannot be ignored.Cross connectors are soldered both manually and by machine. This places high demands on the surface structure and the flatness of the connectors.

Due to our rolled cladding process, dimensional possibilities are unlimited. This special production process enables the application of an even soldering layer over the entire width and length of the connector. Both wide and thick cross connectors can be spooled and, due to their long running lengths, effective connector use is ensured. 

Thin-film modules - Contact strips

Due to the various production processes for thin-film modules, there is also a wide variety of requirements for the connectors. With thin-film modules the straightness and flatness of the connectors play a major role. Due to our production process, the characteristics of SCHLENK contact strips allow them to be laid along very long sections. 

SCHLENK`s special rolled cladding process enables an unlimited dimensional spectrum. Both wide and thick contact strips can be spooled and, due to their long running lengths, effective connector use is ensured.
