Quick Overview

Samsung MBA Series Silver Frame High Efficiency

High Efficiency

Samsung solar modules deliver high efficiency, requiring less installation space and lower BOS costs.

Samsung MBA Series Silver Frame Proven Performance

Proven Performance

Samsung solar modules deliver more electricity under real world conditions thanks to superior temperature performance. (CEC conversion yield: 90.3% under PV USA test conditions)

Samsung MBA Series Silver Frame Output Tollrence

Positive Power Output Tolerance

Samsung solar modules and cells avoid any power loss due to their positive output tolerance (0 / +2%) and narrow sorting range.

Samsung MBA Series Silver Frame Low Mismatch Loss

Low Mismatch Loss

Narrow current band allows for sort-free field installation and optimized solar array performance.

Samsung MBA Series Silver Frame Superior Durability

Superior Durability

Samsung solar modules are certified to withstand high pressure: wind loads (2,400Pa), snow loads (5,400Pa).

Samsung MBA Series Silver Frame Strict Quality Testing

Strict Quality Testing

Samsung solar modules are best-in-class thanks to our quality assurance system following international standard IEC 61215.
