N325K KURO (VBHN325KJ01)
With 325W of power, this 96-cell module reaches a nominal efficiency of 19.4%.
Anti-reflection glass helps increase the energy absorption, while the upper and lower silver connections have been replaced by black tabs, instead of a extra layer of tape or black tedlar, minimizing the efficiency loss versus the white-backsheet equivalent and reducing the risk of cell micro cracks due to lower laminate thickness.
By investing in the HIT® KURO, house owners can maximize their energy yield due to the low temperature coefficient of only -0.258 %/°C. Even at high temperatures, the HIT® solar cell can maintain higher efficiency than a conventional crystalline silicon solar cell. This is particularly relevant for “all-black” modules, where heat absorption is greater. The HIT® KURO delivers best-in-class performance when most electricity is generated, in summer. This is particularly relevant in hot climates.
The HIT® KURO introduces the next generation of the HIT® solar module frame with 40 mm thickness. It can withstand a wind and snow load of 5400 Pa and is officially cleared for short-side clamping. This new generation retains Panasonic’s unique water drainage corners at glass level, ensuring a better self-cleaning of the module and a better long-term perfomance due to minimised soiling and accumulation of dust.
