PV products certification

Rapidity and rigor supporting the PV products certification

Thanks to the ISO 17025 accreditation (BELAC 432-TEST) and its innovative technologies, Eliosys allows you to quickly certify PV modules in respect to the applicable standards.

The different certifications given by ELIOSYS are recognizable thanks to its label ELIOCERT). This label includes amongst others the logo ELIOCERT, a unique identification allowing ELIOSYS to match a certificate with a particular product or a unique product family. This authentication can be accompanied by annual « Factory Inspection ».

The ELIOCERT certification is a strict application of the tests and sequences described in the standards IEC 61215, IEC 61646, and IEC 61730.

ELIOCERT is revolved around 2 combined versions for the IEC 61215 & IEC 61730 standards, but also separately concerning the IEC 61215 or the IEC 61730.

In practice, a lot of 10 modules-tests has to pass tests such as :

  • Electrical performances under various conditions (STC, NOCT, …)
  • Climatic and lighting aging (UV)
  • Tests of electrical constraints (high voltage, overload, lightning, …)
  • Tests of mechanical constraints (windhailscratchimpact, …)
  • Safety tests (leakage current, hot spot, …)

After certification, ELIOSYS provides the company with an ELIOCERT certificate valid for 5 years and listed on its website.

It is important to point out that the certification is required and even obligatory if you want to sell a PV product and benefit from diverse grants. This process demonstrates that the module conception respects the required standards.

For some tests, pass/fail criteria specified by the standards are used. In order to apply those while including the measurement uncertainties, some decisionnal rules are applied. Those are available here
