South Korea-based PV maker Hanwha Q Cells stated today that it will soon begin using its 3 most effective items in Europe.

The business that the three panels are all based upon its Q.antum Duo Z innovation, which it asserts can improve module efficiency by 4%, in relative terms, mostly by lowering the rooms in between cells.

The most powerful of the 3 modules, the Q.Peak Duo XL-G9.3, is available in 5 variations, with power results ranging from 440 W to 480 W and also effectiveness of 19.7% to 20.6%, according to its product sheet. The panel's short-circuit current is from 10.59 to 10.70 ampere and its open circuit voltage from 53.1 and 52.25 volts. It measures 2,163 mm × 1,030 mm × 35 mm as well as evaluates 25.5 kg.

Furthermore, the Q.Peak Duo XL-G9.3 can run with an optimum system voltage of 1,500 V and also an ambient operating temperature of -40 C to 85 C. The firm asserts the Q.Peak Duo XL-G9.3 is an optimal solution for business and also industrial PV projects, along with ground-mounted solar projects.

The Q.Peak Duo ML-G9 series, which the business advises for residential and C&I rooftop projects, varies from 375 W to 395 W and also is additionally available in five versions. It has a performance score of up to 20.8% as well as actions 1,840 mm × 1,030 mm × 32 mm. It weighs in at 19.5 kg.

The Q.Peak Duo ML-G9 line's short-circuit current is from 10.62 to 10.74 ampere and also its open circuit voltage from 44.96 and also 45.10 volt. It can operate with a maximum system voltage of 1,000 V.

The Q.Peak Duo BLK-G9 line, on the other hand, provides power outcomes ranging from 325 W to 345 W, however is created for residential PV projects. The module gauges 1,673 mm × 1,030 mm × 32 mm and evaluates 17.5 kg, with effectiveness varying from 18.9% to 20.0%. It can also run with an optimum system voltage of 1,000 V. Its short-circuit existing ranges from 10.36 to 10.49 ampere as well as its open-circuit voltage is 40.80 V to 40.94 V.

All 3 line of product include 12-year product warranties and 25-year direct performance guarantees. Additionally, they all include MC4-compatible adapters as well as junction boxes with an IP 68 rating.

"Additional technologies included in the Q.antum Duo Z range consist of using 12 rounded wires to link the cells, and additionally larger wafers measuring 161.7 mm in dimension," Hanwha Q Cells stated.
