Mitsubishi Electric Introduces New UD5 Series of Photovoltaic Modules


Mitsubishi Electric, one of the world’s largest manufacturers and providers of solar power technology, has introduced its new UD5 series of 100% lead-free solder PV modules. The UD5 series includes four of the most in-demand power outputs, with new engineering for optimal efficiency and reliability.

“A quality PV system starts with the modules, and the UD5 series is going to raise the bar for efficiency and ROI,” said Gina Heng, director of sales and marketing for Mitsubishi Electric & Electronics USA’s Photovoltaic Division. “With four sizes, our system integrators can choose the most efficient panels for their customers. These panels even save money before they’re installed; because of their lighter weight and packaging, more modules can be shipped using fewer trucks and less fuel.”

Among the features of the UD5 series are:

· Lighter weight: just 37 pounds per module for easier transport and installation

· A new protection bar on back of the module for additional support

· Static load test of 5400 Pa with protection bar

· +/- 3 Tolerance at Pmax

· Additional holes in frame for better water drainage and less corrosion

· Efficient packaging: 504 modules/28 pallets per 40 foot container (18 modules per pallet)

· CEC listing updated as of 8/2/07

· Solid black frame structure

Mitsubishi Electric’s new UD5 modules will be on display in Booth 163 at the Solar Power 2007 conference in Long Beach, Calif.
