The TPS-12-85W solar panels are high efficiency 36 cell designs with excellent low light performance. The monocrystalline silicon solar cells are laminated with a TPT (Tedlar/Polyester/Tedlar) and EVA (Ethylene Vinyl Acetate) bi-layer for high reliability and long life. The cell array is sealed in a heavy duty extruded 6063-T5 aluminum frame with a high transparency low iron tempered glass cover to protect the solar cells from harsh environments; hail, wind, snow and ice. The solar panels are easy to mount because of the aluminum frame design. The wired connections are via a 12AWG x 900mm (36”) outdoor rated cable terminated with MC4 solar connectors.
