JinkoSolar has introduced the Eagle MX solar panel, its next generation smart module for the high-volume mainstream PV panel market that incorporates a new innovative cell-string optimizer technology. The Eagle MX Series is available in both monocrystalline and multicrystalline configurations and deploys Passivated Emitter Rear Contact (PERC) cell technology and 4 busbars for higher conversion efficiencies in the Eagle MX (JK07A/B) mono – c-Si panel (275-355 Watt) 60 & 72-cell configurations.

Solar modules that are expected to be exposed to the environment for at least 25 years can be affected by conditions such as: shading, soiling, aging, temperature gradients, and more. Mismatch caused by these factors in a panel or among various panels can cause the system to lose power. Unlike conventional bypass diodes, solar cell optimizers do not bypass weak cell strings as with a MPPT device,; the on-off response to performance mismatch is eliminated as well as the risk of hot spots. Every cell-string contributes maximum power without interfering with the power production capability of others.

Solution

The Eagle MX module allows PV panels to harvest significantly more energy and simplifies design complexity for solar installation projects. The highly distributed MPPT architecture affords improved tolerance to shading, reduction in power degradation, and even enables denser system design on ideal un-shaded rooftop and ground-mount systems. The module is claimed to produce up to 20% more energy under such unfavorable conditions and care compatible with any inverter brand.

Applications

Residential, commercial & industrial rooftops and utility-scale PV power plants.

Platform

JinkoSolar is offering the Eagle MX module in both monocrystalline and multicrystalline configurations. The top-line Eagle MX JK07A panel (275-355 Watt) 60 & 72-cell configurations can be supplied with panel efficiencies of 18.31% with a 10-year product and 25-year linear power warranty. The Eagle MX JK07A (poly) (260W 60-cell panels have a positive power tolerance of 0~+3%. The Eagle MX JK07B poly panel comes in 255-330 Watt 60-72-cell configurations with 10-year product and 25-year linear power warranty.

Availability

Currently available and assembled in Europe.

FREE WEBINAR -This webinar will feature the perspectives and views of PV Tech’s Head of Research, Dr. Finlay Colville, on how the U.S. PV manufacturing landscape is changing today and when we might expect additions to encompass cells and wafers. This will be followed by a PV Tech special – a look inside one of the first new PV module fabs built in the U.S. this year; SEG Solar’s new site in Texas. Join Jim Wood, CEO at SEG Solar, as he walks around the new factory showing key features and explaining the rational for SEG Solar in making this investment into U.S. PV manufacturing in 2024.

PV Tech has been running an annual PV CellTech Conference since 2016. PV CellTech USA, on 8-9 October 2024 is our second PV CellTech conference dedicated to the U.S. manufacturing sector. The event in 2023 was a sell out success and 2024 will once again gather the key stakeholders from PV manufacturing, equipment/materials, policy-making and strategy, capital equipment investment and all interested downstream channels and third-party entities. The goal is simple: to map out PV manufacturing in the U.S. out to 2030 and beyond.
