LONGi has unveiled the Hi-MO 6, its latest generation of photovoltaic modules that combine high efficiency with stunning aesthetics for distributed generation and rooftop applications.
Xian, China, November 2, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — About November 2, world leader in solar technology LONGi introduced the Hi-MO 6, its first module designed exclusively for the global distributed consumer market. Using LONGi’s high-efficiency HPBC cell technology, Hi-MO 6 achieves a maximum efficiency of 22.8% in mass production. Designed to meet the needs of various customers, the Hi-MO 6 offers superior efficiency, safety and aesthetics.
Improving power generation efficiency through technological innovation
HPBC (Hybrid Passivated Back Contact) is a new generation of high-efficiency solar cell technology distinguished by its front-busbarless design. HPBC cell technology can greatly improve the light absorption and photoelectric conversion capabilities of the cell by adjusting the internal structure of the cell, and thus can effectively increase the output power of the module. Modules equipped with HPBC cell technology can generate a larger power volume under high temperature and low irradiation conditions and also have superior power degradation performance. In global power generation simulations, Hi-MO 6 modules have demonstrated a significant power generation advantage over PERC products with an average increase in power generation of up to 10% in typical scenarios.
When developing photovoltaic solutions for residential and commercial applications, LONGi’s R&D team strives to achieve the highest level of safety and reliability. Hi-MO 6 uses back contact welding technology, which uses the single-line welding structure rather than the traditional Z-shaped structure to improve the module’s resistance to cracking. This revolutionary technological design, combined with the quality of the LONGi life cycle, makes the Hi-MO 6 one of the most reliable PV modules on the market.
Bring photovoltaic technology and architectural aesthetics to various applications
The Hi-MO 6 comprises four series – Explorer, Scientist, Guardian and Artist – all of which are in the standard M10 (182mm) size and are available in 72C, 66C, 60C and 54C types. The aesthetic appeal of the module evokes the minimalist style of modern industrial design and naturally complements a wide variety of application scenarios.
For applications in industries with increased security and intelligence needs, the Hi-MO 6 also offers the option to further improve security and optimization by pre-installing the Smart Optimizer. In the event of a PV system failure or module shading, the back-end system can be monitored remotely and optimized in real-time using Smart Optimizer’s “digital brain” feedback, ensuring plant safety electricity while maximizing system power output.
“LONGi has spurred the development of the industry over the years with high-quality technical innovations. The flagship modules of the Hi-MO series have contributed to improving the global energy structure. The Hi-MO 6 is another important step towards promoting energy equity,” commented the Vice President of LONGi. Denis Elle.
“LONGi aims to collaborate with more partners to participate in the new energy revolution, provide a clean energy solution accessible to everyone, and accelerate our planet’s energy transformation and development.”
Founded in 2000, LONGi is committed to being the global leader in solar technology, focusing on customer-centric value creation for comprehensive energy transformation.
Under its mission of “making the most of solar energy to build a green world”, LONGi has devoted itself to technological innovation and established five business segments, covering mono- silicon wafers, commercial and industrial distributed solar solutions, green energy solutions and hydrogen equipment.
