Nordson ASYMTEK White Paper "Conformal Coating Improves the Reliability and Life of Solar Inverters" Now Available

Published on 2010-06-24. Author : SpecialChem

CARLSBAD, Calif. -- Nordson ASYMTEK, a leader in dispensing, coating, and jetting technologies, has developed new methods of selective conformal coating and process control that can be applied to protect the electronics in solar inverters from harsh environmental factors. Selective coating results in improved reliability and longer inverter life for photovoltaic systems. An explanation of new coating technologies and how they can be applied to the solar inverter manufacturing process is detailed in the white paper, Conformal Coating Improves the Reliability and Life of Solar Inverters.

"The solar inverter is an essential part of every photovoltaic system," explained Akira Morita, business development manager for Nordson ASYMTEK. "Ensuring high reliability of the inverter is critical to the performance of the solar array installation as well as to the continued global adaptation of this relatively new technology. Solar installations must withstand harsh environmental elements such as exposure to moisture, temperature cycle fluctuation, and particle contamination during their expected 25- 30 year life. Using conformal coating, an existing and proven technology, is a cost effective, efficient method to achieve that reliability."
