Description

KD185GX-LPU
The LPU version of the KD185 solar panel is just another example of their commitment to quality and improvement. It is the same as the KD185GX-LP except that the frame depth is now 1.8 inches, vs 1.4 inches. Kyocera's new frame technology allows for end mounting of under 50 pounds per square foot (2400 Pa) and traditional side of frame mounting under 113 per square foot (5400 Pa).

Kyocera manufactures and assembles solar cells and modules at its own worldwide production sites using a true vertical integration process. Their approach gives Kyocera complete control over every step of the manufacturing process. Kyocera's modules have the industry’s tightest power tolerance and, therefore, provide high quality and efficiency.

Kyocera's d.Blue Module Technology

Kyocera solar panels convert sunlight into electricity at the highest possible efficiency. These reliable solar panels are ideal for powering remote homes, recreational vehicles, boats, telecommunications systems and other consumer and commercial applications. And, they are virtually maintenance free.

Kyocera's advanced cell-processing technology produce highly efficient multi-crystal solar panels. To protect the cells from the most severe environmental conditions, they are encapsulated between an EVA pottant with a PVF back sheet and a tempered glass cover. The entire laminate framed with an anodized aluminum frame for structural strength and ease of installation.

Kyocera has perfected its surface treatment technology and is using it on the entire line of Kyocera KD modules named d.Blue, for its dark blue color.

The newly developed surface treatment processes multi-crystalline silicon cells in order to produce a surface texture that minimizes surface reflectance and maximizes output. The result is the very high 16 % conversion efficiency, one of the highest ratings in the polycrystalline module industry.

d.Blue is perfect for installations on all types of buildings, from residential to large scale commercial systems. The stylish dark blue cells, combined with black module frames, allow the KD solar panels to blend in with the buildings' architecture while producing energy at exceptional efficiencies.

The d.Blue modules are available in 135, 205 and 180 watt panels. All feature Multi-Contact™ connector cables, a heavy-duty box-style anodized aluminum frame, and an industry high 20-year power output warranty.
