As outdoor electroluminescence is implemented in the field, with several developments for automated inspection, an increasing concern rises upon the limitation that the electrical connections will bring to the inspection speed. In the effort to avoid both electrical contact and time limitations for PV inspections, here we present the progress in scaling up the well-known cell level photoluminescence imaging to a module level. The final goal is to build up a system that can perform PL excitation and image acquisition from the distance on PV modules and brought easily to the field by unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV).
