The 160 watt solar panel generates cheap solar energy. Use it for on-grid situations or to power your off-grid installation.
This is a versatile panel with endless system possibilities.
Features of the 160 watt solar panels
The panel comes with holes that are pre-drilled at the back.
This is to ensure fast and secure mounting.
The modules are compatible with off-grid as well as on-grid inverters.
The panels come with two stranded, PV rated, output MC4 cables. The positive is a male connector and the negative is a female connector.
The junction box is IP67 rated and waterproof.
It is durable and meant to last for decades. It gives protection against bad weather conditions.
Pre-installed by-pass diodes in the box cut power drop caused by shade. This ensures excellent performance in low-light environments.
Be sure the cables are in a good working order.
Clean surface with damp clean cloth. A dirty panel leads to a big drop in efficiency.
A professional person must perform all other maintenance functions.
Maximum Power: 160Watt.
Open-Circuit Voltage (Voc): 22.3V
Optimum Operating Voltage (Vmp): 18.2V
Optimum Operating Current (Imp): 8.79A
Short-Circuit Current (Isc): 9.72A
Weight: 25.5 lbs.
Dimensions: 8.3 x 26.2 x 1.38 inches.
Use the 160 watt solar panel for multiple functions.
You have to keep the connectors clean and dry. Before connecting the modules you have to seal the caps.
Use Z-brackets to mount the 160 watt solar panel. That will allow for enough airflow between panel and surface. once mounted. This prevents panel for getting to hot which can lead to reduced output.
To prevent further heat built up you can mount it on a white back ground.
You can buy Z- brackets if you need to.
While working on the system, keep it covered. This prevents the generation of electricity.
All electrical contacts should be clean and dry.
Take care not to use sharp instruments on the modules. The back sheet is very sensitive.
Avoid trees, buildings, or any other obstructions when installing the modules.
