Sharp introduces all-black 420W M10 PV Panel

Sharp has unveiled the latest addition to its half-cut cell portfolio, the all-black NU-JC420B, a 420W n-Type TOPCon monocrystalline silicon photovoltaic panel.

The panel features a black backsheet and a black frame, making it ideal for both long and short-frame side clamping. It is specifically designed for residential, small-scale commercial, and industrial rooftop installations.

The NU-JC420B module stands out with its low weight, compact dimensions, mounting flexibility, and system integration. The NU-JC420B boasts an efficiency of 21.51 per cent. Its advantageous low-temperature coefficient of -0.300%/°C enhances its performance at elevated ambient temperatures.

Andrew Lee, Sales Director at EMEA SHARP Energy Solutions Europe said, “with the incorporation of the new black-framed half-cut cell NU-JC420B panel, our product portfolio is expanding to include a module designed for easy handling and installation in residential and small-scale C&I rooftop setups, while ensuring high performance and reliability. We are proud to share that, in addition to passing the EN13501 ‘reaction to fire’ test, our solar panel is also MCS certified, which reaffirms its compliance with high-quality and low-carbon energy standards.”

The new module is built with M10 wafer (182 mm) half-cells. Utilising round ribbons in the 16-busbar technology enhances power gain for each cell and reduces susceptibility to microcracks, resulting in improved module reliability.

The panel's safety, quality, and durability have been recognised as it has been awarded IEC seals (IEC61215 and IEC61730). It has undergone testing to comply with international standards and withstand extreme conditions, successfully passing tests for ammonia, salt mist, sand, and PID resistance. The panel also passed the rigorous EN13501 ‘reaction to fire’ test, demonstrating its exceptional safety and reliability.

The NU-JC420B is covered by Sharp’s 25-year EU End User product guarantee (12-years MEA) and 25-year performance guarantee, with a minimum of 85 per cent in year 25.
