Topic of the Week: High-performance PV (Part 2): flexibility and high efficiency

2/25/20, 5:00 PM -

Panasonic's HIT panels make use of heterojunction technology. The monocrystalline n-type wafer is coated with an ultra-thin amorphous silicon layer.

Panel series designed for flexibility and high performance
The entire range of the Panasonic HIT Series.

Today we present to you a highly efficient series of solar modules comong from Panasonic:

Heterojunction technology means that in the Panasonic panels, crystalline and thin-film technologies are combined. That improves the low light characteristics as well as the temperature coefficient – the panels lose less power as the temperature rises.

The most high-performance variant is the HIT N335 with 96 cells and an output of 335 watts. The black HIT Kuro also achieves an output of 335 watts. Both variants have an efficiency of 20 per cent. The 40 millimetre thick frame withstands snow and wind loads of up to 5,400 Pascal. The mounting brackets can be attached to the shorter sides as well.

The series is supplemented by the narrow N250 panel. The 72-cell model, measuring 798 by 1,580 millimetres, has an output of 250 watts. The fourth variant is the 88-cell N300 panel with 300 watts. All panel sizes can be combined to get the most out of any roof.

Panasonic grants a product warranty of 25 years as well as a performance warranty of 86.4 per cent of the output power after 25 years. (mfo)
