  • The module-- which gauges 2,411 × 1,134 × 35mm, considers 31.1 kg as well as functions 156 p-type monocrystalline cells-- is offered in 5 variations with power outcomes of 565-585 W and also performances of 20.67-21.40%. Jinko states the Pro Tiger collection will certainly end up being the company's primary income stream in 2022, going beyond the Tiger 475 W panel.

PV module supplier JinkoSolar intends to boost the production capability of its new Pro Tiger module series to 10 GW by October. "Some of [the] existing lines will certainly be updated to run this new series," Jinko VP Dany Qian informed pv publication. "In addition, our newly-expanded centers will start the manufacturing of the Pro Tiger panels."

So far, the manufacturer has actually been coy about the collection' two 530/540 W panels-- the 72TR and also 72HC-- in addition to the small-scale-array 60TR panel, which offers an asserted 430 W. However, Jinko has now at the very least disclosed technological information about the 565-585 W monofacial panel in the variety to pv magazine.

The module, which measures 2,411 × 1,134 × 35mm, weighs 31.1 kg and also functions 182mm x 182mm 156 p-type monocrystalline cells, is available in 5 variations with power outcomes asserted by Jinko of 565-585 W as well as reported effectiveness of 20.67-21.40%. Optimum power voltage varies from 43.77 V, for the 565 W panel, to 44.22 V for the 585 W variation, according to the maker, while open circuit voltage ranges from 52.97-53.42 V. "The reduced open-circuit voltage can raise module numbers per string, which will reduce the variety of strings in the system along with the corresponding tracker, cords and also installation prices," Qian claimed.


The operating ambient temperature ranges from -40 to 85 levels Celsius, claimed the producer, and optimum system voltage is 1,500 V. The panel has a plated aluminum frame as well as 3.2 mm of toughened up glass with an anti-reflection layer. Its junction box has an IP 68 ranking.

Jinko provides a 12-year product service warranty and also 25-year power result guarantee. Yearly direct degradation over 25 years is shown at 0.55% while degradation for the very first year of the panel's life time is covered at 2%.

As previously disclosed by the business, the module makes use of tiling ribbon and also multi-busbar innovation. "Thus, it can decrease the number of strings in the problem of [the] same DC/AC ratio," stated Qian. "The cost of [the] corresponding DC wires, tracker numbers, combiner boxes and their installment-- also the land [needed for] PV-- will certainly be cut down as necessary."


Qian said the Pro Tiger fits specifically into the business's present product packaging and logistic approaches. "For the 580 W product, it may need some assistance or some special gizmos to dump." she stated. "For the 540 W design, it is not an issue whatsoever for logistics, taking care of as well as installation. It is generally suitable for any type of supporting framework."

Asked whether Jinko aims to pass the 600 W-output module threshold, Qian said the manufacturer is planning to create panels beyond that limitation, although not by using bigger wafers. "Right now, we can't forecast the ultimate size of panel," she claimed. "It depends on [a] bottleneck of problems, as an example glass spec, container condition, [a] labor handling restriction, as well as compatibility with inverters and also racking systems."

The Jinko VP included, the Pro Tiger module series will certainly come to be the firm's major profits factor in 2022, exceeding the Tiger 475 W panel.
