BP Solar 380U, 80 Watt Solar Panel

Average Rating: 0


  • BP Solar-BP 380U, 80 Watt 12V Polycrystalline Solar Panel

    BP 380S Clear Universal frame with output cables and polarized Multicontact (MC) connectors
    BP 380L Unframed laminate version of BP 380S
    BP 380U Clear universal frame with standard junction box

    The BP 380U solar panel provides superior value and performance for residential, commercial and industrial use, operating DC loads directly or, in an inverter-equipped system, AC loads. Its 36 enhanced-efficiency multicrystalline silicon cells in series charge 12-volt batteries efficiently in virtually any climate. With 80 watts of nominal maximum power, it is well suited to utility grid-supplemental systems and traditional applications of photovoltaics such as telecommunications, remote villages and clinics, water pumping, and land-based aids to navigation. Modules use our Universal frame, the strongest in the industry.

    Proven Materials and Construction

    BP Solar's quarter-century of field experience shows in every aspect of this module's construction and materials: 36 multicrystalline silicon solar cells in series, efficiency enhanced by improved cell coating; Cells are laminated between sheets of ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA) and high-transmissivity low-iron 3mm tempered glass; Frame strength exceeds requirements of certifying agencies.

    BP 380U output is via our Type A junction box. This junction box is rain-tight (IP54 rated) and accepts PG13.5 or 1/2" nominal conduit or cable fittings. Its volume (411cc, 25 cubic inches) and 6-terminal connection block enable series or parallel array connections to be made right in the junction box.
