POWERMAX® SOLAR MODULES FROM AVANCIS

Whether on open spaces, on the rooftop or on the facade, choosing AVANCIS solar modules means deliberately opting for advanced CIS technology that combines cost-effectiveness and efficiency with sophisticated design and aesthetics. Frameless PowerMax® solar modules are easy to install, low-maintenance and in a design class of their own. Take a look for yourself.

PHOTOVOLTAIC SYSTEMS WITH POWERMAX® MODULES ACHIEVE OUTSTANDING PERFORMANCE

CIS achieves maximum energy yields as it has the broadest spectral response (from red to blue) of all photovoltaic technologies. The most efficient absorption of sunlight by the CIS semiconductor is also reflected in a high energy yield (kWh per kWp).

POWERMAX® DELIVERS UNRIVALLED PERFORMANCE IN DIFFUSED LIGHT CONDITIONS

While conventional crystalline silicon solar modules still achieve slightly higher efficiency levels under standard test conditions, CIS modules lead the way in practice. In long-term operation in changeable weather, CIS solar modules like PowerMax® perform better, particularly in adverse weather conditions and diffused light in the morning, evening and when the sky is overcast.

CONTINUOUS MODULE OUTPUT EVEN UNDER THE SHADE

The intelligent design of PowerMax® is another key plus point. The series connection of the modules and the integrated bypass diode ensure that the affected string of the photovoltaic system continues to function even if one solar module is shaded. The whole module design with its 104 CIS solar cells is optimised for low system costs and maximum power yield.

PHOTOVOLTAIC SYSTEMS WITH POWERMAX® MODULES - EASY TO INSTALL, LOW COST

The PowerMax® modules have been designed for convenient installation. The PowerMax® modules are installed over 4 hidden clamps which connect the fixed backrails of the modules to the relevant PV substructures, whether for installation on open spaces, on rooftops or in a solar facade.

ROBUST AND WEATHER-RESISTANT

Snow, hail, heavy rain, heat, wind: extreme weather conditions are no longer a rare occurrence anywhere in the world. Any photovoltaic system designed to reliably generate solar power for more than 20 years needs to be highly weather-resistant. Thanks to the tempered front glass, our certified modules can withstand high winds and snow loads of up to 551 kg/m² (DIN 1055).

SUSTAINABLE PHOTOVOLTAICS - POWERMAX® MODULES ARE MANUFACTURED IN AN ECO-FRIENDLY MANNER

Due to the wafer-thin semiconductor layer of only 2µ, the PowerMax® modules are manufactured using methods that preserve materials and the environment in a purely dry process avoiding all toxic waste water. Due to the integrated CIGS production process, AVANCIS requires fewer raw materials and fewer production steps for manufacturing than producers of conventional modules, meaning that the energy payback time of PowerMax® modules is under one year. All PowerMax® modules are free of lead and cadmium and are manufactured in accordance with the provisions of RoHS guidelines.

PHOTOVOLTAICS WITH STYLE – POWERMAX® MODULES ARE BEAUTIFULLY DESIGNED

As a premium manufacturer, AVANCIS is not only a pioneer in CIS technology, but also in design, right down to the detail. Elegant module design with homogeneous surfaces from robust high-quality glass, fine pinstripe optics, high-quality lamination film and hidden mounting clamps. The frameless PowerMax® modules are of a high aesthetic standard, which is crucial for rooftop systems and solar facades in the building sector. PowerMax® solar modules from AVANCIS are special class premium modules.

POSITIVE TOLERANCES FOR IMPROVED PERFORMANCE

Plus sorting the power classes of our modules ensures that the nominal rating of PowerMax® modules even exceed their specification. This means we only permit upward tolerance variations so that our customers get even more power for their money.

LONG-TERM WARRANTIES

Our product warranty lasts for 10 years and the performance warranty for 25 years. You can find further details in our warranty terms and conditions.
