Suntech 20W – One of the smallest modules we offer – a mono-crystalline 12 volt nominal module with 1.14 amps of Imp. At 660 cm x 310 mm, it is a compact and convenient source of power. Rigid aluminum frame with multi-contact pigtail wires make it easy to install for communication, lighting and solar home systems.

Suntech 50W – This is the old classic module size and the largest Suntech that is still available with the traditional junction box (no MC connectors). Provides 2.93 amps with a power tolerance of +/- 5% (although with Suntech that is almost always plus). Weighs 6.4 kgs.

Suntech 60w – These modules are very popular in water pumping systems or used in parallel to replace the old 120w specifications. 771 x 665 mm and 6.2 kgs. Sometimes also available in 65w or 70w with the same physical dimensions.

Suntech 85w – As cells have become more powerful, this module size has moved from 75 watt up to 80w and now to 85 watt. Although we can sometimes have other sizes built on special order, the standard size is now this 85w module. Minimum Imp of 4.8 amps and weight of 8.0 kgs with dimensions of 1195 x 541 mm.

Suntech 135w – This is the module size that was previously 120 watts, but with Suntech’s stronger cells it increased  to 135w or 140w.  We encouraged them to standarize on 135w and that is what we are receiving now. This is also the largest 12v nominal (17vmp) module.

Suntech 190w – This is the smallest Suntech 24v module that we regularly stock. It is more convenient to ship and install by hand without breakage. 1580 x 808 mm dimensions and a shipping weight of 17 kgs. This is a 24v nominal (34vmp) module – if using this on a 12v system you will need a MPPT controller.

Suntech 270w/280w – This is the largest 24v module that we regularly stock.  Lots of watts from a single module, but more cumbersome to handle.  We can still get some 270w sizes, but the migration is towards 280w as the cells get stronger.  Both sizes are exactly the same in physical dimensions.

Sharp 170w/175w – Sharp makes this module for us in their Memphis, Tennessee factory. Both sizes are available, although we prefer to stock the 175w size.
