Thanks to additional contacts on the front of the cells, these solar panels offer more power than 4-busbar modules while also improving reliability, Astronergy says. With the inclusion of these new Penta Modules in its product portfolio, Astronergy is following a trend in the premium sector.
Thanks to an additional conductor, solar modules with five busbars feature a larger cross section and thus lower series resistance, making them more efficient. And by increasing redundancy, the five conductive tracks improve the reliability of the modules. Changeover should be complete by the end of July. Beginning in August, all of the modules in the Astronergy product portfolio will be available with 5 busbars – in both mono and polycrystalline versions as well as in a black edition.
