Sharp unveils NU-JC440 and NU-JC430B, its latest solar module lineup, featuring wattage upgrades

Sharp Energy Solutions Europe introduces its newest PV modules with rectangular n-Type TOPCon half-cut cell technology: the NU-JC440 and the NU-JC430B.

The high-efficiency 440W n-Type TOPCon monocrystalline silicon photovoltaic panel comes with a sleek black frame and a white backsheet. The all-black NU-JC430B, a 430W n-Type TOPCon monocrystalline silicon photovoltaic panel, features a black backsheet and a black frame.

Product reliability

The all-black NU-JC430B and the NU-JC440 panels are built with rectangular M10R (182.2mm*183.75mm) half-cells. Rectangular cells feature different cell dimensions, resulting in improved performance.

Utilising round ribbons in the 16-busbar technology reduces susceptibility to microcracks and increases module reliability.

The panels are fitted with the MC4 connector to ensure compatibility with a wide range of optimisers and inverters that are popular in the market.

Power output

The NU-JC440 boasts an impressive efficiency rating of 22.53% and the NU-JC430B comes with 22.02%. The excellent low temperature coefficient of –0.300%/°C of both panels significantly enhances performance at elevated ambient temperatures- an important feature due to the impact of climate change and the resulting temperature increases.

Easy to handle

With measurements of 1722 x 1134 mm and a slim 30 mm frame height, the NUJC440 and NU-JC430B weigh in at 20.7 kg. These specifications make it an ideal choice for straightforward installation in residential, small-scale commercial, and industrial rooftop systems with seamless system integration. The panel’s adaptability to various mounting methods, including short and long frame side clamping, screwing, and sliding, allows for flexible assembly- leading to a reduced balance of system and capital expenditure costs.

Every Sharp half-cell module comes with three compact junction boxes, each incorporating a bypass diode. This design minimises heat transfer to the cells above, thereby improving panel durability and enhancing overall system performance.

The panel’s safety, quality, and durability have been recognised by the awarding of IEC seals (IEC61215 and IEC61730). The panels have undergone rigorous testing to comply with international standards and withstand extreme conditions, successfully passing tests for ammonia, salt mist and PID resistance. The panels have also passed the strict EN13501 ‘reaction to fire’ test, thus demonstrating their exceptional safety and reliability.

The NU-JC440 and the NU-JC430B are covered by Sharp’s 25-year EU end user product guarantee and 30-year linear power output guarantee with a minimum of 87.5% in year 30, valid for European rooftop installations.
