LONGi has announced that it has released a new PV module, the Hi-MO5m 54c. With 54 cells, this new Hi-MO5m module is designed mainly for residential and C&I rooftop systems, has a maximum power output of 415 W, and achieves an efficiency of 21.25%.
The new Hi-MO5m 54-cell PV module will expand LONGi’s award-winning Hi-MO5 product line, which has seen unprecedented popularity in large-scale installations thanks to its advanced technology, reliability, and excellent performance. The addition of this new module makes the Hi-MO5 product family available as well for small and medium-sized C&I applications.
Hi-MO5 products use M10 (182 mm) industry standard solar cells. Boundary conditions for design and application of PV modules must account for varying conditions across different links of the supply and value chain. The Hi-MO5m’s 182 mm half-cut cells have proven to be optimal for all manufacturing processes, from ingots and wafers to cells and modules. They are also optimal for module deployment processes, transportation, installation, and overall system integration.
Hi-MO5m 54-cell modules feature PERC Gallium-doped p-type half-cut cells with the highest resistance against light aging (lowest LID) for maximum energy yield and are backed with a 25-year performance warranty. This technology has won performance and technology awards from the Renewable Energy Testing Center (RETC) and PV Evolution Labs (PVEL).
The Hi-MO5m performs well in low-light conditions (such as morning and evening) and even unfavourable lighting angles, with excellent temperature coefficients. Moreover, integrated segmented ribbon technology traps more light into the solar cell, simultaneously reducing cell stress.
With a module size of 1,722 mm by 1,134 mm, the Hi-MO5m 54-cell module offers a higher standard of design and versatility, easy handling and installation. The Hi-MO5m 54-cell series supports most standard mounting systems clamping on the long and short sides of the module frame, as well as lay-in or slide-in systems and elevation systems with module edge clamping. The modules are also compatible with most popular inverters. Their short circuit current is low and well below 15 A. At less than 2 m² in size and less than 23 kg in weight, the module small and light enough for one person to install.
The Hi-MO5 series won LONGi the 2021 Intersolar Award for its advanced technology and innovation. By the end of 2021, Hi-MO5 modules with 72 cells (144 half-cut cells) had been supplied to some 600 clients in 57 countries, with cumulative shipments exceeding 10 GW.
