Thermal cycling test

Thermal cycling test

To determine the ability of the module to withstand thermal mismatch, fatigue and other stresses caused by repeated changes of temperature

Damp heat

Damp heat

To determine the ability of the module to withstand the effects of long-term penetration of humidity

Humidity-freeze

Humidity-freeze

To determine the ability of the module to withstand the effects of high temperature and humidity followed by sub-zero temperatures

Mechanical Load test

Mechanical Load test

To determine the ability of the module to withstand wind, snow, static and ice loads

UV Preconditioning test

UV Preconditioning test

To precondition the module with ultra-violet (UV) radiation prior the thermal cycle/humidity freeze tests to ensure that those materials and adhesive bonds are susceptible to UV degradation

Hail test

Hail test

To verify that the module is capable of withstanding the impact of hailstones

Salt Spray test

Salt Spray test

To determine the ability of the module to withstand salt water condition

Maximum power test

Maximum power test

To determine the maximum power of the module before and after the various environmental tests. Repeatability of the test is the most important factor

Module Breakage test

Module Breakage test

To determine the ability of the module to withstand heavy resistance of stones

Wet leakage current test

Wet leakage current test

To evaluate the insulation of the module under wet operating conditions and verify that moisture from rain, fog, dew or melted snow does not enter the active parts of the module circuitry, where it might cause corrosion, a ground fault or a safety hazard

Insulation test

Insulation test

To simulate and ensure that the module is well-insulated between current-carrying parts and the frame
