In the photovoltaic sector since 2007, Solbian has become an established figure in the manufacturing of flexible solar panels. 

Innovation, efficiency, lightness have become with time the core features of Solbian products.

The payoff “Freedom powered by the Sun” describes in just a few words the essence of this company, which year after year has worked hard to guarantee energy independence to its costumers thanks to the unlimited power of the Sun, all the while respecting nature and the environment.

A company that has been chosen by many affirmed sailors, who have tested the durability and power of these solar panels in the toughest conditions: Giovanni Soldini, Boris Herrmann, Ambrogio Beccaria to name a few.

Driven by an inexhaustible passion, Solbian has never stopped investing in technological development, counting on the continuous evolutions in the fields of polymer chemistry and electronics.

  • SP series is at the the top of the range, thanks to the use of selected back-contact monocrystalline silicon cells, reaching a record 24% conversion of sunlight into electricity and with a pleasant appearance thanks to the electrical contacts hidden on the back. Back-contact cells represent the most advanced technology on the market, and make the SP Solbian panels the highest-efficiency flexible panels.

    Flexible, powerful and robust, the panels of the SP series are recommended for all installations where maximum reliability and power are required, and the appearance of these cells is one of the symbols of photovoltaic modules. They can be used in all situations and are a best seller in marine applications.

    Back-contact cells used in SP series panels are high efficiency monocrystalline cells (the highest available on the market). The electric contacts create a thick pattern resembling two interpenetrating combs on the rear of the cell, this guarantees an optimal management of micro fractures, without power loss. Back- contact cells are also the best choice when it comes to efficiency in low light and sensitivity at higher temperatures. In fact the temperature coefficient is 25% lower than the other cristalline cells.

  • The monocrystalline high efficiency SR cells are sandwiched by two patented metallic grids. The grid on the front is carefully tailored to optimize the current harvesting, while the one behind the cell offers strong mechanical support.

    The grids essentially form a double shield that acts as a conducting reinforcement to the solar cell. Extreme crack and bend tolerance are built in, enabling novel crystalline silicon architectures. A guaranty of high efficiency and unmatched durability in flexible solar panels.

    At the core of Merlin Solar’s patented technology is an innovative pair of metal grids that serve as intra-cell and inter-cell interconnects.

    The same copper and solder as any other bus bar cell are used, but 20 redundant lines and 180+ interconnects, not only enable to extract more power but also dramatically improve the reliability, performance and ruggedness of the solar panels.

  • In the SX series the monocrystalline solar cells are electrically connected using ultra-thin copper wires that form a very fine mesh on the cell surface, resulting in thousands of contact connected points. This alternative to the standard bus-bar method allows a higher module power and increases the energy yield. A technology optimally suited to fexible modules, due to its intrinsic insensitivity to micro-cracks, that are the most common cause of energy loss in solar modules.

    Another advantage is a reduced sensitiveness to shading, pushed to the extreme in the Guardian (G) models where several bypass diodes are inserted thanks to an innovative cell layout. The new connection technology, together with the use of high efficiency silicon cells, make SX panels especially powerful and reliable

    Day4Energy’s laminated cell with patented Stay-powerfulTM Technology, uniquely interconnects solar cells and collects the power they generate. This innovation is a direct replacement of the conventional, high temperature solar cell soldering process. Cells are connected using a matrix of electrically-efficient copper wires coated with a custom, low melting point alloy. This technology guarantees high efficiency in low light conditions and wires act as a “bridge” across any interruption: if a microcrack occurs, the electron flow continues.


    Features

  • SXX Series
    The SXX series comes at the same size of standard 6 inches cell panels but generates more power, thanks to its silicon-based heterojunction solar cells (HJT) that offer more than 23% of efficiency....

  • In the SXX series the heterojunction solar cells are electrically connected using ultra-thin copper wires that form a very fine mesh on the cell surface, resulting in thousands of contact points. This alternative to the standard bus-bar method allows a higher module power and increases the energy yield. A technology optimally suited to flexible modules, due to its intrinsic insensitivity to micro-cracks, that are the most common cause of energy loss in solar modules.

    The SXX series comes at the same size of standard 6 inches cell panels but generates more power, thanks to its silicon-based heterojunction solar cells (HJT) that offer more than 23% of efficiency. When compared with panels of the same nominal power, the SXX prove to harvest more energy due to HJT cells being intrinsically bifacial, an important feature especially when panels are encapsulated in a transparent sandwich and installed with the back exposed to indirect light. To top it all, HJT cells perform better than others in hot climates, thanks to very low temperature coefficients.

    Hevel's laminated cell with patented SmartWire™ Technology, uniquely interconnects solar cells and collects the power they generate. A matrix of electrically efficient copper wires coated with a custom, low melting-point alloy, assures a realiable and fault tolerant electrical connection between cells. The combination of SmartWire™ technology and heterojunction solar cells provides the SXX panels with microcraks protection and bifaciality.

    While the front side of the cell can convert light into electricity with an efficiency larger than 23%, the back can match 90% of the power produced by the front side. If compared with single-face cells of the same nominal power, the joint action of both sides in bifacial cells can lead to a higher daily production of energy.

    • ✓  Very high efficiency (> 23%)

    • ✓  Extra energy obtained thanks to the bifaciality, especially important for applications where the rear side of the module intercepts the reflection of light

    • ✓  Completely waterproof and resistant to salt water

    • ✓  Thin (less than 2 mm)

    • ✓  5 year warranty against manufacturing defects

    • ✓  Positive power tolerance (-0%, +8%)
