Cortex Flexible modue is the first module of its kind to pass the same durability and safety tests as glass modules, including IEC 61215:2016, IEC61730:2016 and UL1703 (USA). The IEC61215 confirms it's ability to withstand prolonged exposure to open air climates. eArc has also passed additional module quality assessments, including 3000 hours of damp heat, UV exposure (25 years equivalent), PID, salt mist and ammonia corrosion tests.
Cortex Flexible series modules are the world's first glassless solar module. An innovation combining proven crystalline silicon solar cells with patented composite material, the module has the same durability and robustness of conventional glass modules. However, unlike glass: The module is akin to a flexible"solar skin", 70% lighter and up to 95% thinner. The module requires 0 penetration or mounting equipment during installation, cutting time-on-site by 40%. The module is easier to transport in bulk - up to 60% more kW per pallet. It targets a variety of applications glass modules cannot service.
