Trina Solar announced the launch of Vertex S, the latest in their high-efficiency PV module series for residential and commercial rooftop applications that increases the output power beyond 405W. Vertex S is a universal solution intended for distributed photovoltaic power plants, available in a range of customizable options, and caters to the needs of both residential and commercial customers. Following in the wake of ground-based power plants, the distributed comprehensive upgrade to the 405W Vertex technology platform heralds the beginning of a new ultra-high power era for distributed photovoltaic systems and the photovoltaic industry as a whole.

The Vertex technology platform combines 210 mm wafers, multi-busbar design, non-destructive cutting and high density packing. By introducing this platform to the new Vertex S family, Trina Solar is able to boost Vertex S’s output power to more than 405 Wp, a power increase of up to 60Wp or 17% compared with previous product generations. Module efficiency has also increased by 1% to more than 21%.

The product series is designed for compatibility with existing mainstream mounting systems, optimizers and inverters for residential and commercial application. The product has a dimension of 1754mm x 1096mm and weighs at 21kg. Electrical parameters are kept within the operating limits of standard inverters. The Vertex S product family comes in three versions: the DE09, DE09.05 and DE09.08. Each of these modules has been designed to feature an easy-to-handle format and light weight for ease of rooftop mounting.

Vertex S customers benefit from improved reliability, with an upgraded product warranty of 15 years.

Due to its smaller dimensions relative to similar modules, Vertex S maximizes the number of modules that can be shipped per container, reducing carbon emissions caused by transportation. Furthermore, the new module series comes in completely recyclable wood and carton packaging.

According to Trina Solar’s estimation, Vertex S is more flexible than a 158mm x 72mm product and features a higher capacity than both 158mm x 60mm and 166mm x 60mm products.
