us for further information. The installer should confirm all safety precautions in the guide when installing modules.
Before installing a solar photovoltaic system, the installer should become familiar with the mechanical and electrical
requirements for photovoltaic systems. Keep this guide in a safe place for future reference.


General
Installing solar photovoltaic systems requires
specialized skill and knowledge. The installer
assumes all risk of injury, including risk of
electric shock. Module installation should be
performed only by qualified persons.
All modules come with a permanently attached
junction box and Module installation should be
performed only by qualified persons.
All modules come with a permanently attached
junction box and 4 mm
2
wire terminated in
Multi Contact PV connectors.
Each individual module can generate voltages
greater than 45 volts (V) when exposed to
direct sunlight. Contact with DC voltage of 35
V or more is potentially hazardous. Exercise
cautions when wiring or handling modules
exposed to sunlight.
When disconnecting wires connected to a
photovoltaic module that is exposed to
sunlight, an electric arc may occur. Arcs can
cause burns, start fires or otherwise create
safety problems. Exercise caution when
disconnecting wires on modules exposed to
sunlight.
Photovoltaic solar modules convert light energy
to direct-current electrical energy, and are
designed for outdoor use. Proper design of
support structures is the responsibility of the
system designer and installer.
Modules may be ground mounted, pole
mounted, or mounted on rooftops.

Do not attempt to disassemble the module, and do
not remove any attached nameplates or
components. Doing so will void the warranty.

Do not apply paint or adhesive to the module.

Do not use mirrors or other hardware to artificially
concentrate sunlight on the module.

When installing modules, observe all applicable
local, regional and national codes and
regulations. Obtain a building and/or electrical
permit where required.
Safety precautions for installing a solar
photovoltaic system

Solar modules produce electrical energy when
exposed to sunlight. DC voltages may exceed
45 V on a single exposed module.
Only connect modules with the same rated
output current in series. If modules are
connected in series, the total voltage is equal
to the sum of the individual module voltages.
Only connect modules or series combinations of
modules with the same voltage in parallel. If
modules are connected in parallel, the total
current is equal to the sum of the individual
module currents.
Keep children well away from the system while
transporting and installing mechanical and
electrical components.
Completely cover all modules with an opaque
material during installation to prevent electricity
from being generated.


Do not wear metallic rings, watchbands, ear, nose
or lip rings or other metallic devices while
installing or troubleshooting photovoltaic systems.

Always use the same type of module within a
particular photovoltaic system.
Under normal operating conditions, PV modules
will produce more currents and voltages that
are different than those listed in the data
sheet. Data sheet values are applicable at
standard test data.
Short-circuit current and Open-circuit voltages
should be multiply by a factor of 1.25 when
determining component voltage ratings,
conductor capacity, fuse sizes and size of
controls connected to the module or system
output. Refer to Section 690-8 of the National
Electrical Code (NEC) for an additional
multiplying factor of 125 percent (80 percent
de-rating) which may be applicable.


General Installation notes

Drainage holes must not be covered with the
part of the mounting system. The junction box
has a breather port which must be mounted
facing downward and may not be exposed to
the rain. The junction box should be on the
higher side of the module when it is mounted
in order to orient the breather port correctly.
Do not lift the module by grasping the modules
junction box or electrical leads.
Do not stand, sit or lay on the module.
Do not drop the module or allow objects to fall
on the module.
Do not place any heavy object on the module.
Inappropriate transport and installation may
damage the module glass or frame.
