Sunpreme Launches First Bi-Facial Smart Module Incorporating Integrated Tigo Optimizers
Sep 10 15
Sunpreme is launching the Maxima GxB-310 SM Smart Modules, the most advanced product -- integrating Tigo TS4-L Optimizer Solution with its high efficiency Bi-facial Solar Modules. Sunpreme Smart Modules offer customers with advanced functionality that maximizes energy yield and peak string level AC/DC of 0.95 plus using impedance matching technology. It also lowers system costs by increasing string length, and reducing installation time and complexity with fewer BOS components. The Smart Module components work together to communicate wirelessly through the gateway, allowing users to monitor system performance accurately in real time, while meeting the new NEC 690.12 Rapid Shutdown Safety standards. The modules are double glass, frameless, aesthetically great looking, easy to install with innovative racking and mounting solutions, and feature Sunpreme's 21.5% efficient Cells enabling 310W 60-cell and 370W 72-cell solar panels and a low thermal coefficient of -0.28%/C.
Sunpreme Launches Premium Solar 2.0 Maxima GxB Solar Modules with Outstanding Aesthetics, Ruggedness and Bi-facial Energy Boost
Mar 5 14
Sunpreme is launching the Maxima GxB-340W and GxB-280W bi-facial modules. They utilize the third generation embodiment of Sunpreme's 156mm HCT based PV cells, packaged in frameless, double glass modules, and designed to meet the growing need for high-performance, cost efficient PV panels in space-constrained roof top and distributed generation applications. At present, this market is served by a very small number of suppliers capable of Solar 2.0 technologies, with demand out-stripping supply. The Sunpreme Solar 2.0 HCT bi-facial cells come with initial production level cell efficiencies of around 21%, for front illumination only, resulting in modules with nameplate outputs ranging from 330W to 350W DC for 72 cell modules. With a simple bi-facial mounting configuration, there is an additional boost in the AC energy output due to power generated from back side of the cell capturing reflected and diffused lights; this can range up to 20% over PVSyst model predictions. Moreover, a second performance bonus accrues from the modules' low thermal coefficient for power degradation, measured at -0.33%/C. The company announced that its Maxima GxB products are ready now for volume shipments. Both the GxB-340W and GxB-280W were fully certified to UL, IEC reliability and safety standards and are CEC listed. All Sunpreme modules are covered by a warranty backed by the Munich Re Insurance. Pre-launch customer momentum has been quite positive, with close to 1 MW worth of pre-booked orders ready to deliver over the next few weeks. Applications include commercial structures and ground mounts in high albedo areas. Demonstrated ruggedness to withstand extremes of cold as well as hot, dusty environments, early shipments include those for use in Alaska and the Middle East regions. Recognizing the outstanding wind resistance of these double glass frameless modules at 300 km/h (versus benchmark 200 km/h), repeat orders have been also received from the Caribbean.
