Intersolar Europe: IBC SOLAR presents new Value-Added Module: IBC MonoSol ZX Black

High-performance monocrystalline solar module meets highest standards in quality and design

Bad Staffelstein, June 10, 2015 – IBC SOLAR, one of the world's leading system houses for photovoltaics (PV), is introducing a new addition to its line of solar modules. The new, European-manufactured IBC MonoSol ZX Black modules are exceptionally powerful and durable and come with comprehensive warranties. Uniform black cells, back sheets and frames make them a perfect choice for aesthetically conscious private-sector PV installations. The new Value-Added Modules are the latest addition to IBC SOLAR's own IBC SOLAR Line product family and will be unveiled June 10th-12th at the Intersolar Europe fair in Munich.

The visually striking monocrystalline module impresses with its 275-watt performance class and an exceptional 17.1% efficiency rate thanks to anti-reflection-coated front glass. At just 18.5 kilograms apiece, the IBC MonoSol ZX Black module is also easy to install; its stable frame can be clamped on either the short or the long side, allowing greater flexibility in installation design.

Continuous quality control measures—from production to end-customer delivery—ensure that the modules are especially durable and provide consistently high yields, making them a particularly secure investment. The German manufacturers offer even more security in the form of a ten-year product warranty and a 25-year linear performance warranty for the European Union and Japan. IBC MonoSol ZX Black will be available from July.

IBC SOLAR's portfolio now also includes IBC MonoSol ZX modules with a performance class of 280 watts—making them the most powerful option in the current IBC SOLAR Line portfolio. The European-manufactured modules with elegant dark frames also come with the Bavarian systems house's comprehensive warranties.

As with all Value-Added Modules of the IBC SOLAR Line, the IBC MonoSol ZX and IBC MonoSol ZX Black modules undergo an extensive series of tests in IBC SOLAR's own quality control laboratory before becoming part of the portfolio. These include long-term load tests in the climate chamber as well as tests using flashers with integrated electroluminescence measurement. IBC SOLAR also uses a comprehensive catalogue of criteria when certifying solar module suppliers for the IBC SOLAR Line products. To achieve “Certified Supplier” status, companies must demonstrate high standards in a variety of areas, including quality management, employee management, working conditions and environmental protection. In addition, all products are inspected upon arrival using a process based on DIN ISO 2859-1.
