Hanwha Q Cells launches its new solar panel

Hanwha Q Cells has unveiled its new Q.Peak Duo XL-G11.3 panel, which features a power output range of 570-590 W and an efficiency range of 20.8-21.7 per cent. The panel is available in five different configurations. It measures 2,416 x 1,134 x 35 mm, and weighs 30.7 kg. Based on 156 monocrystalline Q.antum half cells, the new product has an open-circuit voltage of 53.59 V to 53.70 V and a short-circuit current of 13.49 A to 13.59 A. An IP68 enclosure rating, 3.2 mm thermally prestressed glass with anti-reflection technology, and an anodised aluminium frame are also included. The module can be used in temperatures ranging from -40 °C to 85 °C, and its operating temperature coefficient is -0.34 per cent per °C. It has a 25-year linear power output guarantee as well as a 12-year product guarantee. The first year degradation is claimed to be 2 per cent, and the 25-year end power output is guaranteed to be no less than 86 per cent of the nominal output power.
