Sunmodule Plus SW 285 Mono Black/ Version 4.0 (33 mm frame)
285 Watt Monocrystalline Solar Panel - Black - 5 busbar
The new SolarWorld Sunmodule SW 285 Watt (33 mm frame) solar panels now come with 5 busbars (vs. 3). Read our BLOG on why this means more power for you!
SolarWorld has a process with their solar panels called "plus-sorting". They test each solar panel as they come off the manufacturing line, and are then sorted in 5 watt increments. Only panels with a flashed power that is greater than or equal to the nameplate rated power are delivered. They are rounded down to the nearest 5 watt increment. So a 285W panel could be anywhere from 285W to 289.9 watts. This ensures you are getting the highest system efficiency and saves you the time-consuming chore of sorting the solar panels at the job site.
The patented box channel frame design provides extraordinary stiffness in bending and torsion. The laminate with 4mm glass is set deep in the frame channel and secured with precision applied adhesive. The frame is assembled by press fit to maximize strength and longevity. The result is an extremely robust package that can be mounted in any orientation and can withstand static loads of up to 113 psf on a standard two-rail mounting system.
SolarWorld provides a 10-year Limited Product Warranty and 25-year Linear Service Warranty*.

* Max Reverse Current of this module is 25A. Reverse current is used for calculations and sizing of fuses and breakers. This is subjective - as this can be calculated based on 80% of the max, or 90% of the max etc. Therefore depending on how the fuses/breakers are sized, this module can handle a maximum of 25A of reverse current.
**Frame compatible with both "Top-Down" and "Bottom" mounting methods. Grounding locations - 4 locations along the length of the module in the extended flange.
