SHANGRAO, China- JinkoSolar Holding Co., Ltd. has announced that its flagship Tiger Pro dual glass module has received the world’s first IEC TS 62804-1-1:2020 certificate issued by DEKRA, one of the world’s largest independent inspection companies.
Through DEKRA’s product certification and testing, products have to meet the necessary safety and performance standards that are compliant with international regulations. IEC TS 62804-1-1:2020 tests and evaluates for the effect of potential-induced degradation-delamination (PID-d) in the laminate of crystalline silicon PV modules. When modules are exposed to high temperature and high humidity for an extended period, material’s surface accumulates positive charges and cathodic gas is released into the cell circuit. This leads to metallization that causes reduced adhesion between materials and finally delamination of module components. The performance test added the DH1000 test associated with damp heat exposure, to the test sequence of IEC TS 62804-1:2015 and extended the PID test time to 240 hours. Passing all testing fully demonstrated the module’s outstanding anti-PID performance, premium quality and high reliability under the most extreme environments.
Dr. Hao Jin, Chief Technology Officer of JinkoSolar Co., Ltd., commented, “We are very pleased to be the first to receive DEKRA’s product certification for the best results of anti-PID performance for the Tiger Pro module. As the global market accelerates its uptake of high-performance modules to reduce LCOE, the market is also moving towards larger wafer sizes and new cell interconnect technologies that can command ultra-high power outputs. This highly technical demand lays many challenges when deciding on critical products to maximize the return-on-investment. The Tiger Pro series is our answer to our customers’ needs for higher power output, high module efficiency, reliability and reduced resistance loss under all-weather conditions.”
Mr. Jacky Bai, General Manager of DEKRA Solar Service, said: “Since the establishment of JinkoSolar, it has consistently attached importance to product quality control. The entire process from product development to update iterations is strictly monitored and effectively preventing quality hazards after product launch. Through this cooperation, JinkoSolar has further verified the unremitting efforts on ensuring the power output of modules and improving the quality, and keep up with the most cutting-edge standard dynamics. DEKRA looks forward to further cooperation with JinkoSolar and contributes to the continuous production of high-quality and high-performance module products for the Chinese photovoltaic industry. “
