Trina Solar’s PV modules have passed testing and been certified for salt mist, sand blast and for reaching PID requirements by TUV Nord, PVEL and SGS.

TUV Nord certified Trina’s modules as achieving the latest IEC 61701:2011 Severity 1 standards for salt mist corrosion. According to testing conducting by TUV Nord, Trina’s solar modules performed well in ground continuity, wet leakage and insulation resistance. SGS tested the panels in a blowing sand test conducted under DIN EN 60086-2-68 LC2 standards. The results showed little internal impact, certifying Trina Solar modules as being able to perform well in area’s with severe sandstorms and/or strong winds.

The company’s multi-crystalline panels received potential induced degradation (PID) certification from PV Evolution Labs (PVEL). PVEL performed tests on the modules in high stress conditions of 85 degrees Celsius, 85% relative humidity and a voltage range of +/- 1,000V for up to 600 hours. This is the second PID certificate Trina Solar modules have received this year, being certified by TUV SUD in early 2012.
