Oerlikon Solar says it has passed all tests required for its Micromorph thin-film silicon solar PV modules to receive TUV Rheinland's IEC certification.
The TUV master certificate enables Oerlikon Solar's customers to accelerate their own IEC certification processes, reducing time-to-market for certified high-performance modules from six months to less than six weeks, according to the company. The certification is valid worldwide.
Oerlikon passed both the IEC 61646 (Module Performance Test) and the IEC 61730 (Module Safety Test). TUV Rheinland, recognized globally for its module certification, put the modules through months of rigorous testing before issuing the IEC master certificate. Accelerated life tests for climate and UV exposure were conducted in addition to mechanical impact tests.
