CHANGZHOU, China, August 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — Trina Solar Limited (NYSE: TSL) (“Trina Solar” or the “Company”), a global leader in photovoltaic (“PV”) modules, solutions, and services, today announced the company’s new Duo-Max module, a 72-cell frameless dual glass module (the PEG14 and PDG14 series), has received quality certifications, including the IEC61215, IEC 61730 and UL1703 standards, from world-leading independent testing and certification organizations, UL and TUV Rheinland.
The Duo-Max module comprises two layers of 2.5mm thin heat-strengthened glass, which replace the conventional glass and back sheet structure. The Duo-Max module is a highly reliable and durable PV product that is able to maintain high standards of performance in harsh environments such as desert, tropical and mountain areas. The Duo-Max products offers high levels of resistance to degradation caused by thermal cycling, moisture ingress, mechanical loading, micro-cracking, PID, module warping, UV aging, as well as corrosion from ammonia, acid, alkali, salt mist, and sand abrasion. The Duo-Max module also meets UL’s Fire Class A safety standards. Trina Solar is the first PV manufacturer to offer a product that meets the most stringent PID testing conditions of 1500V system voltage under relative humidity of 85% and a temperature of 85C for 192 hours. It is not necessary to use system grounding for Duo-Max modules, which reduces installation costs. The frameless Duo-Max module comes in 60-cell and 72-cell versions and is suitable for both utility scale power plants and Distributed Generation PV systems. Both the 60-cell and 72-cell frameless dual glass module products carry a 30-year linear warranty with a maximum 0.5% degradation per year.
“We are excited to have secured certification from two leading testing organizations for our innovative, high-quality and long-durability Duo-Max modules,” said Dr. Pierre Verlinden, Chief Scientist at Trina Solar. “It highlights our Company’s ongoing efforts to constantly deliver product innovation, to the ultimate benefit of our customers and business partners, at the same time ensuring we are constantly evolving our technology to best meet the changing needs of the market. This unwavering commitment to innovation enables us to remain at the forefront of the global solar industry and further strengthens our position as the world’s leading premium solar manufacturer.”
