JA Solar Holdings Co. Ltd. says its highly efficient polycrystalline RIECIUM module has passed the 500-hour potential induced degradation (PID) test conducted by TUV SUD.

The tests were conducted under extreme conditions of 85 degrees C, 85% relative humidity and 1,000 V of system voltage bias, with results showing less than 2% power degradation.

The RIECIUM module, launched by JA Solar earlier this February, has a color close to the monocrystalline module. The average conversion efficiency of RIECIUM modules currently in production has surpassed 18.6%, while power output has reached 270 W, which is 10 W higher than the industry average, the company says.
