Solar Frontier SF160-S 160 Watt Solar Panel Module (Discontinued)
Solar Frontier SF160-S 160 Watt Solar Panel Module – this is an independent review for the Solar Frontier SF160-S 160 Watt Solar Panel Module we have compiled for your reference. Feel free to add your comments or experiences at the bottom of the page.
Solar Frontier’s CIS modules generate an electrical direct current when exposed to sunlight. They are designed for terrestrial use. The nominal power of SF PV modules indicates the power generated under Standard Test Conditions (cell temperature: 25°C, air mass 1.5, solar irradiance 1000 W/m²). SF PV Module power output in actual operating conditions may vary. The amount of electrical direct current generated by SF PV modules is proportional to irradiance intensity, while the voltage is affected by temperature.
Installation, wiring, and maintenance of SF PV modules must only be carried out by licensed and trained persons.
Ensure that all instructions and information related to SF PV modules and other balance of system components are fully understood prior to handling and installing a PV solar system.
The front surface of SF PV modules must be covered with an opaque material during installation to decrease the potential of electrical shock.
SF PV modules only generate direct current (DC) electricity.
SF PV modules do not have the ability to store electricity.
SF PV modules will experience higher voltage when connected in series and higher electrical current when connected in parallel.
Only interconnect SF PV modules with similar electrical characteristics in series or in parallel to prevent system imbalance conditions and module damage.
The PV array open-circuit voltage must never exceed the maximum system voltage (including in low temperature conditions).
Leakage currents could create a shock hazard or fire.
Do not disconnect operational modules or electrical arcing may occur. This may result in serious bodily harm or death.
Do not use SF PV modules for purposes other than terrestrial power generation to prevent electrical shock, fire or other accidents.
Do not concentrate artificial sunlight on modules using lenses or mirrors.
Do not use any light sources other than natural sunlight and general illumination for power generation.
Do not use SF PV modules in water or liquid. There is a serious risk of electric shock, an electric leak or an accident.
The level of leakage current must be limited in accordance with local regulations for safety reasons.
Carefully check the polarity of the wiring before installing. Incorrect wiring may damage SF PV modules or appliances.
Only use equipment, connectors, wiring and support frames suitable for solar electric systems.
Wear appropriate protection and take all necessary precautions to prevent electric shock, especially when DC voltage exceeds 30 VDC.
Solar Frontier SF160-S 160 Watt Solar Panel Module power output and efficiency
The Solar Frontier SF160-S 160 Watt Solar Panel Module has a maximum output of 160 watts. Efficiency is an important thing to look at when comparing solar panels, since it affects how much power can be captured from the sun. The Solar Frontier SF160-S 160 Watt Solar Panel Module has a module efficiency of 13.00%.
Size is an important thing to look at when comparing solar panels, since it effects how much power can be captured from the Sun, and explains how many panels will be required to meet your need. This solar panel has a panel size of 1.23 metres squared.
How sunny is it?
If you are thinking of buying a Solar Frontier SF160-S 160 Watt Solar Panel Module, we'd advise measuring your solar resource first. Doing this will give you a much better idea of how much power you might generate.
