100W eArche frameless lightweight solar panel 1254 x 553 x 2mm (Vmp 19V, Imp 5.27A)
2.1 kg, 4x9 5" mono cells, 5 yr warranty
eArche are the only thin, lightweight solar panels approved by the Australian Clean Energy Council.
This panel is frameless so it is only 2mm thick. Therefore this ultra-thin and ultra-light flexible eArche solar panel is perfect for 12V boating, caravanning and camping applications.
Dimensions: 1254 x 553 x 2 mm
Cells: 36 (4x9) monocrystalline 5 inch cells
Cable and connectors: PV Cable 4.0 mm2, (+)150 (-)450 mm both with MC4 compatible connectors
- The manufacturers warranty is 5 years for mobile applications and the output warranty is the same as high grade rigid solar panels used on buildings: above 80% of the original power by the 25th year.
- The 2mm thin panel has no edge so is very flexible.
- Made with a Patent Pending composite material similar to those used in airplane windows. These panels are approved by the Clean Energy Council for grid connection in residential and commercial applications yet they don't have a heavy, rigid frame or glass.
- eArche has obtained a series of certifications for reliability, including:
The strict Japan Electrical Safety & Environment Technology Laboratories (JET);
The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) which is widely recognised quality standard certifications throughout the solar industry;
CE mark indicatings the panel meets the minimum European Union requirements for Electro Magnetic Compatibility (EMC) compliance;
CSA International certification for Canada and U.S.
Approval by Australia's Clean Energy Council;
The Clean Energy Council (CEC) maintains the database and website listing of AS/NZS 5033-compliant photovoltaic (PV) modules for grid-connected commercial and residential applications. (Note: CEC approval is not required for solar panels on RVs and boats and other mobile applications as they are not connected to the grid.)
