Uni-Solar framed modules are mounted on permanent, fixed position module racks that can be adjusted for optimum tilt, wind resistance and orientation to sunlight.
These glass-free vandal resistance modules can be utilised in a wide variety of applications from fence charging to telecommunications.
The larger framed panels are often used as building blocks in photovoltaic arrays, which can be assembled to meet virtually any load from less than 100 watts to multi-megawatts.
Why Do Uni-Solar products outperform others?
All solar panels are rated in terms of peak power output (watts). Outdoors, under normally higher operating temperatures, solar panel performance changes, depending on temperature, solar spectrum (light color) and related effects.
Uni-Solar products are less affected by temperature than monocrystalline or polycrystalline solar technology products. The result is up to 20% more delivered energy.
The Uni-Solar modules are durable. They are encapsulated in UV-stabilized polymers and framed with anodised aluminum. The Polymer encapsulation includes EVA and ETFE.
A Galvalume steel backing plate provides stiffness. Bypass diodes are connected across each cell, allowing the modules to produce power even when partially shaded (exception: US-5).
The US-64 and US-32 have a weather resistant Uni-Solar junction box with knock-outs for customisation by the customer. All other US-modules have a potted pig tail with integral wiring. The cable is a 2-conductor 18 AWG with insulation rated at 158º F.
The Uni-Solar US-64 and US-32 modules are appropriate for all applications from simple single module requirements to larger grid-connected applications. All other Uni-Solar US modules under 30 watts should not be connected in series.
