Seraphim is a Chinese brand of Tier 1 solar panels, which is the highest classification for this kind of product. Tier 1 refers to a panel that has been made by a manufacturer and it was classified by a reputable independent PV industry analyst under this category, which is the highest in the rank. In other words, the analyst considers the panels have an excellent score on aspects such as customer experience, financial position, manufacturing scale, deployment scale, durability and quality, technical performance, vertical integration, insurance, and backing and service and support.
For non-panels experts, it is highly recommended to choose a Tier 1 product, since it is the easiest way to make sure they’re getting the best option in the market and also they avoid the chance of getting swindled.
Seraphim panels have been in the market for more than 10 years and they have 25 years of performance guarantee. They are proven to be corrosion resistant, which is a great characteristic for excessive sunny areas. About their functioning, Seraphim panels have the following characteristics:
When it comes to size, Seraphim panels have a standard one. The ones that are more commonly used in Australia are the ones with 60 cells, but Seraphim Solar also produces a larger one with 72 cells and a couple smaller of 54 and 48 cells. All of them are corrosion resistant and they’re also able to be installed in areas close to the sea.
Seraphim Solar produces multiple lines of panels for each customer’s needs. These are the
Seraphim SRP-6MB Panels
These panels have 60 cells and standard size, when it comes to efficiency ranges they go from 16.3% to 17.2%. They work with a technology called Pmax temperature coefficient, which means that they may experience a decrease of 0.43% in energy production when the environment temperature is less than 25 degrees Celsius. So this line of panels is not very recommended for cold places.
This is the most efficient line of panels of Seraphim Solar company. Their size is smaller than previous lines and their production levels are higher than the rest of the panels. The lower-cost panels are polycrystalline version and it’s 17.1% more efficient than conventional ones. On the other hand, the monocrystalline version efficiency levels are of 18.8%. Their temperature control is average so they will work fine on cold environments.
There is a line of panels that, instead of having a dark blue surface, they have a black sheet which makes the panel look darker when the sunlight is reflected, without the white lines that surround the panel. Many customers prefer black solar panels over blue ones, but actually these ones have a slight decrease in energy production, due to they got hotter when receiving sunlight, which makes the photovoltaic cells work a little slower.
