  1. During the first 8-10 weeks of operation, electrical output exceeds specified ratings. Power output may be higher by 15%, operating voltage may be higher by 11% and operating current may be higher by 4%.
  2. Electrical specifications are based on measurements performed at standard test conditions of 1000 W/m2 irradiance, Air Mass 1.5, and cell temperature of 25 °C after stabilization.
  3. Actual performance may vary up to 10% from rated power due to low temperature operation, spectral and other related effects. Maximum system open-circuit voltage not to
    exceed 600 VDC per UL, 1000 VDC per TÜV Rheinland.
  4. Specifications subject to change without notice.
