Suntech Solar Panel 40Watt 12Volt (Multi-crystalline)


Suntech 40Watt 12Volt multi Crystalline Solar Module

 

The STP040-12 is a 40 watt, 12 volt solar panel, and will provide enough power to trickle charge a 12V vehicle or deep cycle battery. Helps run pumps, lights, fans, and small appliances such as stereos, televisions and VCR's in caravans, boats or cabins.

 

The STP040-12 modules are composed of 36 multicrystalline silicon solar cells of similar performance, interconnected in series to obtain the 12 volt output.

 

A heavy-duty anodized aluminium frame provides strength and convenient mounting access. For each 18 cells series strings, one bypass diode is installed. Cells are laminated between high transmissivity, low-iron, 3mm tempered glass and sheet of tedlar-polyester-tedlar 'TPT' material by two sheets of ethylene Vinyl acetate 'EVA'. This protects against moisture penetrating into the module.

 

Features

 

  • 36 high-efficiency Suntech Power Silicon Solar Cells
  • More power in peak hours through Suntech Power Cells
  • Optimized module performance with Nominal Voltage 12 V DC
  • Bypass diodes to avoid hot-spot effect
  • Cells are embedded in a sheet of TPT and EVA
  • 3.2 mm high transmissive low-iron, tempered glass
  • Unique esthetic appearance of cells
  • Attractive, stable,heavy duty anodized aluminum frames with convenient mounting-access, for high wind-pressure and snow-load
  • The backside frames are equipped with drainage holes. So we eliminate the risk that rain or snow water may accumulate in the frame lumen and freeze or even bend the frame in cold season
  • Pre-cabled with fast-connecting systems
  • Customer-desired packing

Warranty

 

  • 25 years Limited Power Warranty
