1st Aug, 2013 – Seraphim Solar System Co., Ltd (“Seraphim”), a world’s leading-quality producer of solar panels, announces the launch of its AC modules Polaris and Solaris to the global market, beginning in Australia.
As opposed to DC system utilizing string or central inverters, ACPV system that is preassembled with microinverters allows each solar panel to operate independently, therefore the typical environmental factors or the module mismatch do not degrade the overall performance of the array, there is minimal negative impact on the solar harvest. AC module systems avoid high DC voltage, which makes installation and maintenance safer and offers greater safety.
Terry Jin, Technical Director of Seraphim Solar System, said: “Partnered with APS Inc, a professional supplier of microinverters, Seraphim AC modules undergo vigorous factory testing, evaluation and field tracking, resulting in the highest quality. Polaris is a pre-assembled system consisting of an YC250 microinverter and 1 Seraphim panel while Solaris embodies an YC500 and 2 panels, in either silver or black color, mono or poly crystalline.”
“Our AC modules provide up to 25% more energy output than the conventional systems, while reducing up to 50% of the system design and installation cost. In addition, the availability of Polaris and Solaris together offer great flexibility in system design especially for the complicated residential rooftops.”
“Seraphim is committed to bringing the highest quality PV solutions and services, Polaris and Solaris AC modules enrich our product portfolio for the high growth Australian as well as the global markets. These large residential applications offer tremendous potential for Seraphim AC solutions,” said Justin Xi, Executive GM of Seraphim Solar System.
With intelligent networking and monitoring systems, Seraphim is proud to offer the ACPV solution in a complete way. Seraphim’s ECU (Energy Communication Unit) is the information gateway to collect and transfer module performance data in real-time, giving comprehensive control over each individual module. Seraphim’s Monitoring system can constantly monitors the installation, which allows customers around-the-clock management of their solar PV array through any web-enabled device at anywhere.
Recently, a joint press conference was held by TÜV SÜD, Seraphim Solar and Fuji Film. Seraphim Solar System Co., Ltd was granted the world 1st “Thresher Certification”, for its outstanding product reliability and power output performance.
“The traditional IEC 61215+IEC 61730 certification alone is not sufficient response to the concerns about the reliability of PV modules. Thresher Mark is a new reliability protocol developed based on the conventional tests of photovoltaic silicon modules. The modules will be placed under extended environmental and power output tests, challenging the ability of the module to perform safely and reliably in the long term. The Thresher protocol is a very useful diagnostic tool to detect lifetime criticalities,” said by Robert Puto, the TÜV SÜD Global Director of Photovoltaics said, “PV modules that pass the Thresher Certification offer a much higher level of confidence in terms of long-term reliability as compared to those having only certification. I’m very happy to see the Chinese company like Seraphim continuously invest in quality to be the 1st Thresher Certification Mark owner. ”
Polaris Li, the General Manager of Seraphim Solar System said, “it is generally believed that the lifetime of crystalline silicon photovoltaic modules is 25-30years, but in the field practical applications, some PV power plants suffer from underperforming energy output. In order to guarantee the lifetime with a stable power output of our PV module, we started to submit our product to TÜV SÜD for the Thresher, which test the PV modules under 3 times stringent environmental conditions than the traditional certification, we are very proud of and confident with our modules’ long-term durability and reliability, this is not only a single test but a milestone for the industry. Together with the top yield performance in Photon 2012 outdoor test and the TUV On-site Power Measurement Program, we believe Seraphim can deliver more value to our clients’ investments. ”
Fujifilm Corporation and its representative, Goto Yoshihisa san, the Executive Director also attended the conference, he mentioned, “As a major component supplier of Seraphim, Fujifilm work closely with their technical team, we know how to make the long-last materials to support the PV module’s lifetime requirement, this test is also very important to our future developments”.
