Panasonic Secures "˜Class One' Italian Fire Safety Certification For Modules

Panasonic has revealed they have achieved a maximum "˜Class One' fire safety rating for their HIT solar module series in Italy. The test was conducted by world-renowned testing group TÜV Rheinland and ensures Panasonic's high performance modules are fully compliant with Italian fire safety regulations and qualify to be installed upon Italian roofs requiring specific fire deterrence parameters.

 TÜV Rheinland performed the tests upon Panasonic's HIT N240/245 and the latest addition to their module portfolio, HIT N325/330. Both modules achieved Class One certification in accordance with Italian standards UNI 9177, UNI 8457 and UNI 9174, guaranteed by the Fire Prevention Laboratory Spa (LAPI) of Italy.

"Today's fire safety results for the Italian market demonstrate our on-going commitment to delivering the highest possible quality and reliability standards for our European customers", stated Daniel Roca, Senior Business Development Manager at Panasonic. "Having produced solar technology for over 40 years, we have forged our reputation upon unparalleled manufacturing excellence. As we strive to help accelerate solar energy adoption across Italy and Europe, this commitment to excellence remains at the heart of our solar energy solutions."

 The N325/330, the latest addition to the HIT series launched in March 2016, produces approximately 27 percent more kilowatt-hours per square meter compared to mainstream 260-watt multicrystalline modules.

 The fire safety results also follow this month's announcement that Panasonic's have launched their "Simulate your Solar System" platform for Italian homeowners interested in installing solar energy. The interactive service enables homeowners to input their address, roof characteristics and yearly electricity consumption to provide a personalised, easy-to-understand estimate of their home's solar potential and how much they can save using Panasonic's world-renowned HIT® solar panels.



AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!

AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and will feature online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.

2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.

We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.

Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.

Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
