High performance stable yields.

Bosch Solar Cell M 3BB


High-yield high-performance reliable. Solar cells from Bosch Solar Energy.

Our monocrystalline solar cells offer impressive features including: High annual yields, even with less than optimum levels of sunlight, thanks to excellent performance in poor light conditions Exceptionally stable performance through the use of purest silicon and high-impedance wafers produced in-house Straightforward cell processing as a result of narrow performance tolerances Reliability of supply in the short and long term thanks to high production capacities Pioneering 3-busbar technology reduces current conducting losses in the module and helps boost power in the module Packaging: Performance- and quality-tested 150x pack as smallest packaging unit Suitable for digital recording of incoming goods using a barcode system Production & quality control: 100 % classification under IEC 60904 and IEC 60891 100 % testing of reverse-current resistance Regular calibration to Fraunhofer ISE
