SmartWire Connection Technology
SWCT is the most cost-effective method of connecting cells. It employs a foil-wire electrode instead of the conventional cell connectors (ribbons). This results in significant improvements in efficiency while reducing the negative effects of possible micro-cracks to a minimum.
- Higher output in the module
Thanks to the dense contact matrix, the solar cells exhibit a significantly higher efficiency. In comparison to conventional 3-busbar technology, SWCT delivers an increased performance yield of 6% for solar cells thanks to encapsulation in the module.
- Less silver in cell production
Cells without busbars require up to 80% less silver.
- Reliable modules with higher energy yield
Our modules have passed extended IEC- and UL certification tests successful.
Bificial modules with SmartWire Connection Technology shows an increased energy yield in terms of kWh/Wp under real outdoor conditions.
- Combination for high performance
Heterojunction cells combined with the SmartWire Connection Technology have achieved module efficiencies of more than 20%. In combination with new-module designs (e.g. glass/glass modules) this results in essential lower energy costs ($/kWh).
