WINAICO modules pass 5000 Pa DML test to withstand strong winds greater than level 17
WINAICO's high efficiency WST-260P6 modules pass 5000 Pa DML tests, performed by leading research institute ITRI, to prove the module reliability against strong winds greater than level 17 on the Beaufort scale
WINAICO, Taiwans largest PV module brand, has worked with Taiwans leading research institute, ITRI, to put the high efficiency polycrystalline WST-260P6 modules through the toughest Dynamic Mechanical Loading test (DML) on the market, 5000 Pa. The results show that WINAICOs WST-260P6 module can withstand the dynamic pressure of 5000 Pa with a power degradation of no more than 0.29%. This means WINAICOs modules have the best reliability against strong winds, and can be installed in the most typhoon-prone areas around the Pacific Ocean.
The 5000 Pa DML test simulates the effects of strong winds by alternating the pressure on the module in both front and rear directions. Based on a simulation by ITRI, the 5000 Pa pressure is stronger than level 17 winds on the Beaufort scale, with wind speeds faster than 220 km/h.
"WINAICO is known for producing high quality solar modules", said Davis Chen, Chairman and CEO of WINAICO. "By pushing the boundary of the Dynamic Mechanical Loading tests, we can combine our high efficiency modules with the best reliability on the market. The 5000 Pa DML test we passed shows our modules are suitable for even the most typhoon-prone areas around the Pacific Ocean."
