Atlas 25+ PV Durability Testing
Atlas 25+ provides a crucial missing component to the IEC type design qualification tests, that of predicting the effects of long-term environmental exposure during the product lifetime. Instead of comprising isolated, individual stresses targeted at "infant mortality", Atlas 25+ consists of a series of combined stresses applied to PV modules, providing a true analog of the effects of long-term ageing resulting from exposure to the elements.
To put it simply, Atlas 25+ is a proprietary multi-dimensional durability test program designed to subject photovoltaic modules to the environmental degradation stresses which can be expected over long-term service. It provides manufacturers with the data they need to demonstrate long-term durability and to support warranty and performance claims while reducing the costs associated with aftermarket product failure.
The Atlas 25+ mark serves as a key product differentiator and provides customers and financial stakeholders with the proof of independent third-party environmental durability testing by the recognized industry leader.
