New photovoltaic modules SILK® Premium with high module efficiency up to 21.29 % and two configurations
with 400 and 500 Watt
FuturaSun upgrades the SILK Pro module and presents SILK® Premium, its new range of photovoltaic modules. The Italian FuturaSun team has designed a new PV panel with excellent results in terms of efficiency and power that will determine its success in 2022.
SILK® Premium photovoltaic panels are available in 2 configurations: 120 1/3 cut cells with power ranging between 390 and 410 Wp, ideal for residential and commercial installations and 150 1/3 cut cells with power ranging between 490 and 510 Wp for commercial and utility scale installations.
1/3 Cut Cells
The SILK® Premium configuration is particularly suitable for residentialinstallationand features 120 PERC cells (G12) from 210 mm, multi busbar, 1/3 cut design. The larger 1/3 cut cell reduces the operating current and internal resistance, improving the overall yield. As a result, the cell undergoes less mechanical stress, further reducing micro crack and hotspot risks, which are likely to occur when the PV panel is operating. The 120 cells are laminated and framed in 1754 x 1098 x 30 mm, which makes this product ideal for residential and industrial roofs. This module weighs just 21 kg.
Moreover, the new Premium range reduces the space between cells from 2 mm to 0.8 mm, thanks to the high-density cell connection technology.
In terms of power and efficiency, this PV panel reaches 410 Watt on a 1.92 m2 surface and has high efficiency of up to 21.29%.
According to Nicola Baggio, Technical Manager at FuturaSun: “the modules of the new SILK® Premium range ensure a 21.26% efficiency and will gradually replace the SILK® Pro range in 2022. The 20-Watt increase in power per module will help save on the other materials needed to make the system.”
In addition to the panel with 120 cells, SILK® Premium also offers the configuration with 150 cells. The panel is slightly larger (2185 x 1098 x 35 mm; weight: 26.3 kg) and reaches up to 510 Watt of power and up to 21.26% of efficiency.
The new SILK® Premium range has already obtained the class 1 certification for fire reaction according to the Italian UNI9177 standard and the IEC 61215, IEC61730 and Factory Inspection certifications from DEKRA for its quality and reliability.
