AU Optronics (AUO) has introduced a new monocrystalline product line: The SunBravo modules with multi-busbar technology are available in two versions, as an aesthetic fullblack version (PM060MB4) or a classic version with a black frame and white back sheet (PM060MW4).
In comparison to standard cells which feature four or five busbars, respectively, the SunBravo cells have 12 thin wires. This product feature is particularly advantageous in terms of the power output, thanks to the shorter path for the current transport and the reflectance wire design. Due to the better mechanical load performance, the reliability of the modules is increased. This is demonstrated by extensive AUO tests which go far beyond the IEC standards.
Consequently, the SunBravo modules are suitable for the installation in harsher environmental conditions, e. g. in regions with high salt content, high humidity or strong wind. The reinforced thicker aluminum frame and the potted junction box (IP68) also contribute to a special durability. AUO grants a 15-year product warranty and a 25-year linear performance warranty on its products, with at least 82.5 % of the rated output in the 25th year.
