NEWARK, Del., Sept. 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Motech Americas, LLC, the PV module engineering center of excellence for the sixth largest cell manufacturer in the world, Motech Industries, is producing some of the most powerful modules in the industry by introducing the new, XS+ series of monocrystalline modules. Motech is proud to announce the addition to its product line in response to requests from their large worldwide customer base of PV developers, installers and integrators. The release of the XS60+ and XS72+ series complements Motech’s IM60+ and IM72+ series with 260W for a 60 cell module and 310W for a 72 cell module on a multicrystalline platform.

All modules have positive tolerance of 0 to 4.99 Watts. The improved module design provides flexibility for solar installers and developers. The Plus series is available in multiple frame thicknesses, 600 or 1000 volt junction box with MC4 compatible or Tyco Solarlok connectors.
