infinityPV Solar Tape
infinityPV Solar Tape is a flexible organic solar cell foil with optional semi-transparent lined adhesive on the front or backside and functions as a solar sticker. Your imagination is the only limitation to the applications of solar tape. It can be applied to rods, window blinds, window frames, glass, UAV drone / RC airplane wings, cabinets etc. where ever you would like and where you might have a need for power. The solar tape is ideal for solar energy integrators, sensor devices, Internet of Things (IoT), electronic projects, makers, and DIY hobbyists. NEW: The Solar Tape works well with the custom designed OPV3W60V DCDC converter board for charging batteries or direct USB output.
infinityPV Solar Tape applications
The infinityPV Solar Tape can be applied like regular tape with a lined adhesive and functions as a solar sticker (see video). Upon request it can be supplied without adhesive while our intention is that you should apply it like you would ordinary tape with a lined adhesive. The adhesive is pressure sensitive and you have to be determined in your placement of the Solar Tape. The surface needs to be smooth and clean. Once applied it cannot be corrected or removed without potentially damaging the solar cells so you have to get it right first time. With a little practice you will master this. The Solar Tape comes in standard widths of 30 mm or 60 mm with larger width on request based on our solar foil design. It is possible to contact and solder the solar tape as described in this video. The Solar Tape works well with the custom designed OPV3W60V DCDC converter board for charging batteries or direct USB output.
The Solar Tape is based on the infinity concept and is available in uni-directional and bi-directional versions. The voltage builds up along the length of the foil.
- uni-directional Solar Tape: positive and negative contacts are the in opposite ends of the tape
- bi-directional Solar Tape: two separate strings or positive and negative terminal adjacent in either end of the foil
Above we show how you can easily peel off the liner and apply the Solar Tape to rods and window blinds. The instruction video describes how to contact at any point and solder wires to the solar tape (DIY). We can also supply electronics for your application in the form of DC-DC converters that track the power output of the solar cell in your installation and allows you to store the energy in a battery or use it directly. Please let us know your needs, we are here to help.
