The LONGi Hi-MO N makes use of LONGi's exclusive High Performance Cell (HPC) technique, based on n-type hybrid passivated call (TOPCon) modern technologies. Using the company's familiar 182mm cell and 72-cell module size, the Hi-MO N delivers performances of as much as 22.3% as well as power results of up to 570W.

LONGi claimed it anticipates the Hi-MO N to be the 'Solar Module Super League' (SMSL) member's flagship product, providing what it called an "commercial advancement" for module efficiency as well as power return.

The bifacial module is designed to supply higher gains from the backside of the panel, a better temperature coefficient and also enhanced performance under low irradiance conditions. On the other hand, the Hi-MO N is likewise slated to perform at a lower functional temperature level as well as flaunts boosted light-induced degradation (LID) and also potential-induced degradation (PID) performance.

In general, LONGi said the module is expected to provide energy yields 2-- 3% more than comparative mainstream p-type bifacial modules.

With using smart soldering technologies, the Hi-MO N is asserted to be PID-free under irradiance. Degradation in the initial year is slated to be less than 1%, as well as straight degradation is put at 0.4%, compared to around 2% and also 0.45% each year experienced in similar mainstream items, LONGi stated.

In addition, LONGi claimed its higher efficiency and also balance of system-cost conserving 182mm cell size mean, combined with its conversion effectiveness of 22.3%, can enhance mounted ability by greater than 3.5%.

The product's launch comes less than a month after LONGi set a brand-new conversion performance record for n-type TOPCon cells, getting to 25.09%. Nonetheless that record has since ultimately been covered by JinkoSolar.

This year's SNEC exhibition in China has actually seen an influx of n-type products hit the marketplace, with financial investment in the modern technology anticipated to soar in the coming years prior to coming to be the main modern technology investment location from 2024 onwards.
