JA Solar modules hit new PID-resistance mark

JA SolarJA Solar Holdings Co., one of the world’s largest manufacturers of high-performance solar power products, announced that its entire portfolio of PV modules has passed the 96-hour Potential Induced Degradation (PID) resistance test under the conditions of 85-degrees Celsius and 85 percent relative humidity (double 85) at -1,000V of system voltage bias as required to meet the IEC 62804 standard. JA Solar is the first PV module manufacturing company to guarantee the capability of double 85 anti-PID for all of its PV modules.

In addition, as reported earlier , JA Solar’s high-performance multi-crystalline Si RIECIUM modules passed an extended 500-hour PID test conducted by TUV SUD with a degradation of less than 2%. This result is a testament to the outstanding anti-PID capability of the high-performance modules, which are now guaranteed to be able to sustain a doubled (192 hours) IEC62804 standard PID test and are certified by PI-BERLIN and PVEL. The excellent anti-PID performance of JA’s PV modules provides an enhanced quality and reliability assurance to the end users for the stable operation of PV installations, especially for those operating in a hot and humid environment over their 25-year life span.
