Models: PVL-62, PVL-68, PVL-93, PVL-124, PVL-136
Triple Junction Technology
The foundation of the UNI-SOLAR PVL-116 is the
Triple Junction silicon solar cell unique to UNI-SOLAR .
Each cell is composed of three semiconductor junctions
stacked on top of each other. The bottom cell absorbs the
red light, the middle cell absorbs the green light and the top
cell absorbs the blue light. This spectrum splitting capability
is the key to higher efficiency.
• Lightweight, Flexible, Durable
• Easy to install “peel and apply” application
• 20 Year warranty on power output
• Roll Shippable
• Top Termination quick connect or Junction Box
• Bypass Diodes for Shadow Tolerance
• UL Listed
Product Description and Application
The PVL-116 (photovoltaic laminate) utilizes the proprietary Triple Junction solar cells manufactured by UNI-SOLAR. These cells are made in a roll-to-roll deposition process on a continuous roll of stainless steel. The result is a unique, flexible, lightweight solar cell.
The UNI-SOLAR PV-116 Laminates are encapsulated in UV stabilized polymers making them exceptionally durable. Bypass diodes are connected across each cell, allowing the modules to produce power even when partially shaded.
These special roofing laminates are designed to be bonded on 16-inch wide (minimum), flat steel pans. The PVL-116 come with the bonding adhesive factory-installed
on the back of the laminate. Included is a rugged, weatherproof junction box and/or Quick Connect Terminals.

During the first 8-10 weeks of operation, electrical output exceeds specified ratings. Power output may be higher by 15%, operating voltage may be higher by 11% and operating current may be higher by 4%.
Electrical specifications (±5%) are based on measurements performed at standard test conditions of 1000 W/m2 irradiance, Air Mass 1.5, and Cell Temperature of 25°C
after long-term stabilization. Actual performance may vary up to 10% from rated power due to low temperature operation, spectral and other related effects. Maximum system open-circuit voltage not to exceed 600 VDC.
* Refer to section 690.8 of the National Electric Code for an additional factor of 125%, which may be applicable.
