Born to work well even in particularly difficult circumstances and under heavy mechanical stresses typical of extreme ocean racing, the photovoltaic module “SOLBIANFLEX” is a true revolution in the field for the high efficiency never achieved by a light and flexible panel and for the outstanding resistance to weather and degrading agents such as thermal shock, fog and salt water, solar radiation and shocks (can be walked). The panel is made of special polymers selected by researchers of CNR, a patented technology.
The photovoltaic panels of SP series are made using SunPower™ monocrystalline cells, with an efficiency greater than 22.5%, incorporated in polymers with high strength. The SunPower™ cells, thanks to their “backcontact” technology, have a very pleasant aesthetic appearance, furthermore, they make the Solbian panels the most efficient on the market.
The polycristalline solar cells used in the SXp series 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. This technology is 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. Another advantage is a reduced sensitiveness to shading, a quite important issue in marine and mobility applications. The new connection technology, together with the use of high efficiency polycrystalline silicon cells, makes SXp panels especially powerful and reliable.
The flexible solar panels of CP series are made using monocrystalline silicon cells, with an efficiency greater than 18%, incorporated in polymers with high strength.
