Exhaustive research work and continuous further development of production processes enable the integrated Kyocera high-performance solar cells with a standard size of 156mm x 156mm to achieve over 16% efficiency, guaranteeing and extremely high annual yield of energy from the photovoltaic system.
To protect against the hardest weather conditions, the cells are embedded between a reinforced glass covering and EVA foil, and are sealed with a PET foil backing. The laminate is set in a sturdy aluminium frame which is easy to assemble. The module fulfils test conditions according to IEC 61215 ed. 2 for a surface load of 5,400N/m2.
The junction box on the module backside is equipped with bypass diodes that eliminate the risk of the individual solar cells overheating (hot spot effect). Many series-connected photovoltaic modules can be easily wired using pre-assembled solar cables and multi-contact plugs.
Kyocera manufactures all the components at its own production sites – without buying in semi-finished products – to ensure consistently high product quality.
