Deep industry expertise and knowledge. At Photonic Universe we love high quality solar products.That's why we have developed this state-of-the-art solar panel made of back-contact solar cells - the newest generation of solar cells which have a significantly higher efficiency compared to standard solar cells (which means they extract more sunlight energy from the same area). The b ack-contact solar cells used in this solar panel have an unparalleled efficiency of up to 25%.
Which makes this the smallest and most efficient 140W flexible solar panel commercially available in the world. The solar cells used in this panel have been manufactured by SunPower - one of the largest US solar manufacturers, using the newest production equipment and cutting edge technology. If you would like to learn more about back-contact solar cells and their benefits, check out our article. Introduction to back-contact solar cells. Which explains the differences between back-contact solar cells and regular front-and-back contact solar cells.This 140W flexible solar panel is made of strong ETFE material which has a longer service life compared to standard semi-flexible solar panels. As a result, these particular flexible solar panels are extremely robust and less prone to cracking , delamination and corrosion. The lightly textured coating of this panel creates an anti-reflective surface which allows the panel to absorb a far greater amount of light, thereby increasing efficiency. ETFE material has long been used in applications where durability and high-temperature resistance is required, such as in the Eden Project, Cornwall. You can read more about ETFE and its benefits. This 140W waterproof solar panel is perfect for permanent outdoor use to provide free electricity for charging 12V batteries to power various applications, such as in a motorhome, caravan, camper, boat, or for solar lighting systems, off-grid, and back up solar power systems. The panel can also be used to provide direct power supply for applications not sensitive to changes in input voltage / current e. Electric motors or pumps and for various grid-tie applications. Back-contact solar cells with efficiency of up to 25% make this panel ideal for applications where space is restricted, or where there are obstructions on the roof. Flexible design makes it ideal for curved roofs and surfaces where bonding is preferable (though the panel can also be fixed by bolts or screws). The panel is incredibly light (only 3.15kg) which is great for all vehicles. High resistance to salt water environment and possibility to walk on the panel make it perfect for boats and yachts. Sealed waterproof design ensures the panel can be used in all weather conditions. Long-lasting, highest efficiency back-contact monocrystalline solar cells will give you years and years of consistent, free power. The panel is fitted with 2 x 0.9m of cable specially designed for solar panels to carry high currents with negligible power loss (4mm cross section). The cable comes with waterproof MC4 connectors which can be used for easy connectivity to your existing system, for linking several panels together or for connecting a 4mm extension cable. Please note: We recommend purchasing a. To feed the solar cables through to the inside of the vehicle / building / below deck and ensure that everything is fully sealed and watertight. If you are planning to use this solar panel for charging a 12V battery or battery bank: please note this panel requires an MPPT solar charge controller / regulator to charge a 12V battery. To view the full range of MPPT solar charge controllers we offer, please visit the Solar Charge Controllers category of our online shop. Maximum power voltage: 24.2V.
Maximum power current: 5.79A. Open circuit voltage: 28.6V. Short circuit current: 6.25A. Power allowance range: +/- 5%. Dimensions: 1445 x 540 x 3 mm.
2 x 0.9m of high quality single core solar cable with 4.0mm cross section. Male and female MC4 connectors. (tick the box "This is not about an item" if you don't know this item number).
