GCL System Integration launches 585 W TOPCon solar panel

GCL System Integration has released a new N-type tunnel oxide passivated contact (TOPCon) solar module. The product is reportedly a bifacial monocrystalline module made to provide higher efficiency and reliability while reducing light-induced degradation and light and elevated temperature-induced degradation. With power outputs ranging from 560 W to 585 W, the new series is available in six configurations. The power conversion ef­fi­ciency varies between 21.7 per cent and 22.6 per cent. The short-circuit current is between 13.8 A and 14.1 A, and the open-circuit voltage is between 51.14 V and 51.9 V. Each module weighs 27.8 kg and has dimensions of 2,278 mm x 1,134 mm x 35 mm. The panels have an IP 68-rated junction box and an anodised aluminium alloy frame. Both sides of the modules are covered with anti-reflective, semi-transparent 3.2 mm glass. They can operate between -40 °Celsius and 85 °Celsius, with a temperature coefficient of -0.29 per °Celsius. The panels can be utilised in PV systems with a maximum voltage of 1,500 V. The company provides a 12-year product warranty as well as a 30-year power output guarantee for 87.4 per cent of the initial yield.
