KPV Solar GmbH, headquartered in the Austrian state of Carinthia, has introduced RFID technology into its photovoltaic (solar) modules, enabling greater anti-counterfeiting and product traceability.
Integrated into each module’s laminate is an equipped RFID chip that will carry a distinct serial number. Each chip can also carry any related documentation and information regarding specific characteristics as it pertains to each module.
Information can be read from the front- and backside to automatically record and book serial number as incoming and outgoing goods are processed – further simplifying the logistic cycle.
The RFID protected logo also serves as a double anti-theft protection, deterring against theft or counterfeiting. Should a module become lost or stolen, the RFID-chip ensures reliable traceability and identification unlike traditional adhesive labels that can be removed.
