The Sunware Series 20 solar modules are more powerful, compact and lighter than the previous Sunware Marine and Compact solar panels. The solar cells are protected with an EVA laminate and ETFE coating to protect them from water ingress. The modules are specifically designed for the harsh marine and salt water use. The cable outlet is screwed to the mounting plate, completely sealed and 100% saltwater proof. By hermetic encapsulation cells and carrier plate are themselves well protected against the aggressive saltwater.

The junction box on the module is located on the front of the panels with a 3m cable. A convenient hole located next to the junction box to allow the cable to be safely pushed through to behind the panel for easier installation.

The carrier material is an Aluminium sandwich core. The new core material ensure the cells are perfectly supported and protected. The solar module can adapt to curved surfaces, with maximum curvature of 3cm/m module length. All modules can be screwed, glued or attached with clips and the module package includes white screw rosettes for countersunk screws to prevent damage to the module laminate by the screw head.
