Like the firm’s previous 235-watt model, presented at Intersolar Europe in June, the KD240GH-2PB has two additional cross-struts on the back to enhance stability. The frame is also said to be stable, to help the module withstand heavy mechanical stresses. According to the company, the module has been certified by the TÜV for a load of 5,400 newtons per square meter and the junction boxes have high-quality soldered joints instead of clamps.
Kyocera is putting a new solar module with 60 cells and 240 watts of output on the market. The KD240GH-2PB module is said to be particularly suitable for ground-mounted solar installations and industrial on-roof arrays, though it can also be used in conventional house roof installations.
