Bosch Solar Energy is showing three performance-optimized series of modules with innovations which increase average module performance by up to 10‒15 Wp. The use of a new, highly transparent encapsulation film and the new anti-reflection coating on the front glass ensure higher output. Moreover, innovative, structured cell connectors with a larger cross-section improve the series resistance in the new modules, thus increasing output. This increases yields by up to 5.5 percent with the same area. Reliability tests far beyond the requirements of the IEC 61215 and 61730 standards have demonstrated the great durability and long-term sturdiness of Bosch solar modules.
The innovative black half-cell module known as the Bosch Solar Module c-Si M 60+ S with a new frame concept is making its debut. In addition to enhanced, extremely great mechanical stability and optimized frame ergonomics, it especially sets itself apart thanks to its output of up to 285 watts. This is facilitated by a new cell generation in half-cell design and a burned-in anti-reflection coating on the front glass, which enables greater light absorption. The new premium module, consisting of 120 half-solar cells in approved Bosch quality, is already available in limited numbers from now on. Bosch Solar Energy will be launching serial production of its new high-performance module in white in the summer of 2013.
