Highly Efficient 166 Half Cell Series Modules

  • The Seraphim  370W panel features top technology with 166 half cut cells, each cell having 9 thin wire busbars to carry the power generated to increase efficiency. Most panels only have 5 0r 6
  • Each module in the 166 cell series solar panels consists of two identical parts (half Cells), which are composed of cells that are half the size of ordinary solar cells. By cutting cells into halves, these smaller cells reduce ‘Cell to Module’ loss, which means higher output.
  • With the Shorter ribbon length of the cells, power loss in the cells is reduced by 6%
  • The module efficiency is 19.8%
