Solar Innova achieves a new quality certification and compliance with International Electrotechnical Standard (IEC 60068-2-68) for monocrystalline and polycrystalline solar photovoltaic modules.

 

The Sand and Dust Test and Certificate is based on the standard IEC 60068-2-68 and specifically tests the solar module´s resistance to the exposure of sand and dust - that is to say, the module´s ability to maintain stable performances in desert environments.

 

Sand and dust can cause abrasions of the PV module´s surface (the most affected component being glass). Abrasions can affect the module´s irradiation absorption capacity and even cause corrosion. This can eventually lead to a reduction in the power generation efficiency of the module.

 

Solar Innova modules have successfully passed the Sand and Dust Test (IEC 60068-2-68), proving that these elements only have minor effects on the surface of the modules and their electrical performances. The ability of the modules of bearing the exposure to dust and sand makes them a most suitable choice for projects in the challenging desert environments.
