Conergy has updated its PowerPlus module series with improved product and performance warranties as well as offering new module additions. New additions to the series include the PowerPlus 240P, PowerPlus 240M and PowerPlus 190MC. Conergy claims to have almost totally eradicate defects in manufacturing, materials and, as a result, defects in the modules, which has meant it can offer a 10-year product quality guarantee, up from 5-years as well as a guarantee of 92% of performance after twelve years and 80% after 25 years.

Problem

High quality standards and premium components are required for PV modules used in harsh environments that encounter elements such as high-wind, snow, hail, ammonia or salt. According industry estimates the average rate of complaints concerning faulty modules is in the range of 2-3% of installations. There is s need to reduce complaints and provide increasingly robust modules for all environments.

Solution

New high performance additions to the Conergy PowerPlus module family include new 240 watt 60 cell premium modules available as either a monocrystalline or polycrystalline-based. Conergy has also extended the range with a 48 cell module that offers a high performance option with the 190 watt Conergy PowerPlus MC. New features include larger clamping areas on both the long and short sides of the module that give the installation engineer much more flexibility for difficult installations. The modules can withstand the most extreme environmental conditions and is therefore ideal for regions with very strong winds or large amounts of snow. Load capacities have been raised by the equivalent of 19.6 kilos from 5,400 to 6,000 Pascal. This corresponds to a weight load of 612 kilos per square metre. This is reflected in the very low rate of complaints, currently only 0.0037% of installs of Conergy modules.

Applications

Wide-range of applications that include harsh environments.

Platform

The Conergy PowerPlus modules are certified according to the international norms IEC/EN 61215 Ed. 2 (testing quality, longevity and reliability of the modules) and IEC/EN 61730 (testing electronic and mechanical safety). Moreover, they have an excellent performance in low-light conditions, a certified “very good” ammonia resistance and a positive power tolerance.

Availability

June 2011 onwards.
