Acrylite Solar pre-fab package offers first optical train for CPV modules

Evonik Cyro is launching the first optical train package, ACRYLITE Solar Pre-Fab lens panels, for Concentrated Photovoltaic (CPV) modules saving customers tooling costs and manufacturing time.

ACRYLITE Solar Pre-Fab acrylic lens panels are combined with a Secondary Optical Element (SOE) to create a complete optical train package for assembly directly into Concentrated Photovoltaics (CPV) modules. This allows customers to bypass purchasing the tooling device needed to create the product and avoid the required time-consuming installation process.

The optical lens package utilizes Light Prescriptions Innovators? (LPI) patented Fresnel-Köhler optical design. The ACRYLITE Solar Pre-Fab lens panels serve as the Primary Optical Element (POE), which collects light over its entire area. This POE is coupled with a Secondary Optical Element (SOE), either Evonik?s SAVOSIL, or LPI?s glass SOE, which focuses light over a smaller area homogenizing the light in order to maximize its usefulness to a solar cell.

ACRYLITE Solar Pre-Fab lens panels provide excellent light transmission, high-mechanical strength, and outstanding resistance to weathering and UV light. These new lens panels are part of the ACRYLITE Solar product portfolio, which consists of specialty acrylic molding compounds and sheet products for solar applications.
