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.
