85-Watt High-Efficiency Monocrystalline Photovoltaic Module
The BP 585 photovoltaic module uses the world’s leading commercial laser cell processing technology to produce photovoltaic modules with exceptional efficiency. Its premium laser-grooved buried-grid monocrystalline cells provide a premium power performance of 85 watts nominal maximum power and 12 volts of nominal output for DC loads, or with an inverter, AC loads. The BP 585’s high efficiency is particularly suited for applications which need maximum energy generation from a limited array area. Applications include utility grid-connected residential and commercial roof systems, building facades, and traditional industrial and remote applications. Modules use our Universal frame, the strongest in the industry. Available versions include: BP 585S – Framed module with output cables and polarized connectors BP 585L – Unframed laminate version of the BP 585S BP 585U – Framed module with a high-volume Type A junction box BP 585H – Framed module with our Type B junction box
Proven Materials and Construction
BP Solar’s quarter-century of field experience shows in every aspect of these modules’ construction and materials: • Laser patterning and processing minimizes cell front shading, maximizes efficiency; • 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.
What are some benefits or limitations of the alternative technology regarding economics? (What will it cost to purchase, re-fuel, launch, educate and distribute?) Benefits. No pollution: A great benefit of using Hydrogen fuel cells is that they give off no pollution, and in fact produce pure water as a byproduct. Even though currently engineers are concentrating on producing hydrogen from natural ...
Clear Anodized Universal Frame
raintight (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. Options include: • oversize terminal block which accepts conductors up to 25mm2 (AWG #4); standard terminals accept up to 6mm2 (AWG #10); • Solarstate™ charge regulator. BP 585H output is via our Type B junction box, which is raintight (IP65 rated), features a convenient flip screw-tight lid, and offers the same wiring capabilities as the Type A junction box. It is equipped with a versatile 5-terminal Euro-style connection block. Two cable fittings that accept cable with a diameter between 6-12mm are included with each BP 585H module.
DC Connectors Output Options
The BP 585 is offered with three output options: Connector-equipped cables and two types of junction box. BP 585S and BP 585L output is via heavy-duty AWG #12 (3.3mm2) output cables with polarized weatherproof DC-rated connectors which provide reliable low-resistance connections, eliminate wiring errors, and speed installation. Asymmetrical cables enable side-by-side or end-to-end module placement in arrays. BP 585U output is via our Type A junction box. This junction box is
• Power output for 25 years; • Freedom from defects in materials and workmanship for 5 years. See our website or your local representative for full terms of these warranties.

Cut each core into 2 cm sections until you have enough for one core for each temperature of water bath that you will be using. Put your 2 cm sections into a test tube with plenty of distilled water. b. Label a set of test tubes (one for each temperature of water bath) with the temperature and your initials. Add exactly 5 cm3 of distilled water to each test tube and place your tubes, one in each ...
The BP 585L is recognized by Underwriter’s Laboratories for electrical and fire safety. The BP 585U is approved by Factory Mutual Research for application in NEC Class 1, Division 2, Groups C & D hazardous locations.

1. These data represent the performance of typical BP 580 and BP 585 modules as measured at their output terminals. The data are based on measurements made in accordance with ASTM E1036 corrected to SRC (Standard Reporting Conditions, also known as STC or Standard Test Conditions), which are: • illumination of 1 kW/m2 (1 sun) at spectral distribution of AM 1.5 (ASTM E892 global spectral irradiance); • cell temperature of 25°C.

2. During the stabilization process which occurs during the first few months of deployment, module power may decrease approximately 3% from typical Pmax. 3. The cells in an illuminated module operate hotter than the ambient temperature. NOCT (Nominal Operating Cell Temperature) is an indicator of this temperature differential, and is the cell temperature under Standard Operating Conditions: ambient temperature of 20°C, solar irradiation of 0.8 kW/m2, and wind speed of 1m/s. 4. The power of solar cells varies in the normal course of production; the BP 580 is assembled using cells of slightly lower power than the BP 585.
In this experiment I am going to investigate the effect of varying concentration of a differing glucose solution on the amount of osmotic activity, between the solution and a potato tuber of a given size. The purpose of this experiment is to demonstrate how living cells rely on osmosis, the diffusion of water. Osmosis is the movement of water molecules (H20) from a region in which they are highly ...
