SmartWire Connection Technology
Solar cell connection technology SWCTTM
SmartWire Connection Technology was developed for use in connecting current and future generations of solar cells. This technology is available exclusively from Meyer Burger.
SWCT™ is an entirely new way to connect cells. This patented technology allows very cost-effective and resource-friendly mass production of high-performance, top-quality solar modules.
SWCT™ is extremely flexible and powerful: almost all cell and module types can be processed, including state-of-the-art developments such as bifacial HJT glass/glass solar modules.
Benefits of SWCT technology to connect solar cells
- 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).
