Netherlands-based PV system provider Autarco has introduced a solar module collection based upon 166mm silicon wafers and also monocrystalline Perc cells, with Chief Executive Officer Dan Horan telling pv magazine: "The series' main use will be the rooftop market."

The MHI collection features five half-cell panels with power outcomes of 355-375 W and performances of 19.2-20.3%.

The modules, including 120 half-cells each measuring 166 by 83mm, have overall dimensions of 1,765 by 1,048 by 35mm and also evaluate 20 kg. The panels-- readily available in standard layout, with black framework or full black versions-- feature 3.2 mm front glass, a layered Animal backsheet and EVA encapsulant.

Autarco supplies a 12-year item service warranty and 25-year power outcome guarantee for 83.1% of the initial yield.

The products feature Staubli MC4 connectors, for decreased fire threat, as well as inverter-integrated detection of arc fault circuit disruption, the supplier specified. 2 of the 5 modules-- the MHI365 and MHI370-- will certainly be available from following month, Autarco said.

" The modules are created by Chinese conglomerate Chint with tightened up requirements under Autarco quality control and also [are] eligible for Autarco's insured kilowatt-hour and also product performance assurances," claimed president Horan." [The] Netherlands is our largest market by far but various other essential markets in Europe for us are Belgium and Spain."

The MHI products adhere to the introduction in 2014 of Autarco's MHE collection, which supplies a little lower power result degrees. The Dutch vendor in January exposed the MHE variety was based upon Chint Team modules. The Chinese supplier creates its very own modules at its Astronergy system.
