Solar Panels

Characteristics

The PW 1000 series module use Photowatt's multicrystalline technology. The 200 micron solar cells are individually characterized and electronically matched prior to interconnection. Encapsulation beneath high transmission tempered glass is accomplished using an advanced, UV resistant thermal setting plastic. The encapsulant, ethylene vinyl acetate, cushions the solar cells within the laminate and ensures the operating characteristics of the solar cell under virtually any climatic conditions. The rear surface of the module is completely sealed from moisture and mechanical damage by a continuous high strength polymer sheet.

The glass/tedlar construction of the module minimizes weight while providing a durable, protective environment for the solar cells.

This product is configured for 24 Volt system operation. A 12/24 Volt version is also available upon request. Bypass diodes are factory mounted to protect the module against reverse current. Additionally, this module can be configured into a panel at the factory and pre-wired to guarantee field performance
