Pressure Compensation Seal for the Solar Industry


Schreiner  ProTech today announced the introduction of an innovative, rugged,  self-adhesive Pressure Compensation Seal (PCS) specially designed to provide  solar module junction boxes with long-lasting protection against severe  environmental conditions, preventing damage to sensitive electrical  components.
Schreiner ProTech has 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 (PV) 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.

While the value of alternative energy sources like  solar power is increasing, the production costs of solar energy systems need  to be reduced and reliability improved to ensure long-term viability.  Schreiner ProTech’s PCS meets the high standards of the IP 67, as well as all  of the solar industry’s requirements in terms of cost-reduction, safety,  quality and technical performance. Additionally, the PCS can be customized and  installed off the roll in a semi- or fully-automated process, enabling leaner  manufacturing processes and lower production costs.
