SolarWorld® presents new high performance modules
Bonn (ots) -
Mono-crystalline Sunmodules Plus® in the 6-inch class
SolarWorld AG relies on quality leadership in all its products - including its new mono-crystalline high performance modules of the 6-inch class. These high performance modules from the Sunmodule Plus® range originate mainly from the highly advanced, integrated US production in Camarillo/California. They enhance the group's offering of mono-crystalline 5-inch and poly-crystalline 5-inch and 6-inch modules. With the Plus Sorting (according to the SolarWorld Flash Report) within the framework of the Sunmodule Plus® development the group guarantees customers a high level of reliability and performance for all technologies. The nominal output staggered in 5-Watt steps renders the time-consuming sorting of the modules by performance on site superfluous making for a generally higher level of efficiency of the entire plant.
Stability and constant performance
In addition to the high performance of the cell technology used the new 6-inch high performance modules are characterized, like all Sunmodule Plus® products by a high level of stability and safety. This holds true for all applications on the roof and in open field projects as well as under different climatic conditions. Thus, the fixed and consistent silicon connection between the module frame and the framed glass makes for a high module stability and tightness against snow and ice - also when snow masses slide down the roof. The Sunmodule Plus® is also certified for loads up to 5.4 kN/m² according to IEC 61215 2nd Ed.
Additionally, the flat transition from the aluminum frame to the glass supports the self-cleaning of the modules thus also making for constant high performance. The large distance between the cells and the module frame permits both a horizontal and a vertical installation of the modules. The patented, flat and compact connection socket of the Sunmodule Plus® provides safe protection against corrosion and makes for optimum temperature resistance by way of rapid heat dissipation.
Integrated quality concept: test winner SolarWorld
SolarWorld AG is the pioneer of the idea of Plus Sorting. From the wafer via the cell all the way to the module the group masters all the processes of the solar value chain thus ensuring a consistently high quality at all production levels. In addition all Sunmodules Plus® can be employed worldwide thanks to their IEC and UL certification. The quality concept is rounded off by the 25-year performance warranty and the fact that the modules can be recycled. In a long-term test the "Photon" trade magazine confirmed the efficiency of the Sunmodules Plus®. The modules made by SolarWorld AG ended up being the winner of the test on the basis of their high output.
