JinkoSolar Holding Co. sent word that its modules have passed intensive UV test in terms of IEC 61345 from TUV Rheinland.
What is IEC 61345?
Comparing with test procedure of UV Preconditioning test defined in IEC 61215, which is the major international standard of the industry, IEC 61345 intend to verify the sample’s UV resistance under different ultraviolet level (“UVA”, 320nm~400nm “UVB”, 280nm~320nm).
By considering the test condition of that, Jinko required TUV Rheinland to perform the special UV test which had more than 160KWh/m2 irradiance for exposure (137.84KWh/m2 for front side and 30.07KWh/m2 for rear side). And power degradation was less than 5%.
“I’m proud that JinkoSolar is the first Chinese PV manufacturer to pass intensive UV test according to IEC61345, which further demonstrates our technology strength and leading position in the industry,” commented Mr. Kangping Chen, Chief Executive Officer of JinkoSolar. “We have always been committed to providing our clients with the highest quality and most reliable products while being at the forefront of solar technology.”
