First Solar Introduces Series 6 Modules

[Tempe, AZ] First Solar has launched its Series 6 module, manufactured for utility and large C&I PV power plants. The new module includes some significant design variations compared to First Solar’s smaller-format and lower-power Series 4 (110 W STC–122.5 W STC) frameless thin-film laminates. The Series 6 is a large-format module (79.1 by 48.5 by 1.9 inches) with power ratings of 420 W STC–445 W STC. The modules are designed for two-person installation. In a departure from First Solar’s previous laminate designs, the Series 6 features an under-mount frame with versatile mounting that is compatible with leading fixed-tilt and tracking systems. The under-mount frame maintains the cleaning and snow-shedding benefits of a frameless module, while protecting edges against breakage and enabling horizontal stacking. Additionally, the Series 6 has a dual junction box design, eliminating the need for wire management for module-to-module connections.
