Advanced Module Technologies: Half Cell
Half cells involve deliberately cutting a fully processed cell into the half with very advanced laser machines. Half cells are being adopted quickly, thanks to the fact that from a manufacturing point of view only minor changes are needed to include laser machines.
Half cells improve module performance and durability and can provide an instant power boost of 5–6 watts (W).
Thanks to the integration of PERC, half-cut technology has seen achieved efficiencies of up to 18% and power ratings of up to 300 W.
