Singapore-based PV module producer REC has developed residential photograph voltaic modules based on its Alpha heterojunction cell know-how.

“Manufacturing has begun at REC’s Commerce 4.0 fab in Singapore and first shipments will attain the US market in Might 2024,” the company talked about in an announcement launched.

The REC Alpha Pure-2 Sequence is accessible in 4 variations, with power rankings ranging from 400 W to 430 W, and efficiencies of 20.6% to 22.2%. They’re made with 132 heterojunction, half-cut monocrystalline photograph voltaic cells and have a system voltage of 1,000 V.

The photograph voltaic modules have open-circuit voltages ranging between 48.5 V and 49.3 V, along with short-circuit currents ranging from 10.60 A to 10.81 A. All 4 variations of the photograph voltaic modules share dimensions of two,237 mm × 1,246 mm × 30 mm, and a weight of 21.7 kg.

These panels can operate inside a temperature number of -40 C to 85 C and exhibit a working temperature coefficient of -0.24% per diploma Celsius. They operate as a 4 mm photograph voltaic glass with anti-reflective remedy, an IP68-rated junction subject, and an anodized aluminum physique.

The producer offers a 20-year linear power output assurance and a 25-year product assurance. Furthermore, the module sequence qualifies for the premium REC ProTrust assure bundle deal, offering as a lot as 25 years of safety for product, effectivity, and labor, with an assured power output of on the very least 92% inside the twenty-fifth 12 months.
