The installation must be performed by a certified installer/servicer to ensure system integrity and safety.
The installation is only allowed after referring and understanding of GENERAL INSTALLATION MANUAL and INSTALLATION MANUAL – PHOTOVOLTAIC MODULES.
If you don’t have your personal copy, please contact your installer or local Sharp office listed in Sharp Solar web site : URL : http://www.sharp-world.com/solar
Do not pull the PV cables.
Do not touch any surface of module.
Do not place/drop objects onto the PV modules.
Do not disassemble or attempt to repair the PV module by yourself.
Do not drop the PV module.
Do not damage, pull, bend, or place heavy material on cables.
Upon completion of any service or repairs, ask the installer/servicer to perform routine checks to determine that the PV modules are in safe and proper operating condition.
When replacement parts are required, be sure the installer/servicer uses parts specified by the manufacturer with same characteristics as the original parts.
Unauthorized substitutions may result in fire, electric shock, or other hazard.
Consult your local building and safety department for required permits and applicable regulations.
In regions with snow, the module can sustain a snow load of up to 50 cm (when the module is mounted in the portrait orientation/short frame side facing down) or 100 cm (when the
module is mounted in the landscape orientation/long frame side facing down).
As a result of sliding snow, the mechanical load increases when the number of module rows in the matrix of a PV installation increases. When mounting the module in the portrait
orientation for more than 3 rows, the accumulated snow load may cause the lower edge of the module frame to deform. Take necessary measures (e. g. snow stopper) to avoid possible
damage.
Periodically remove any overhanging snow and/or ice from the module framework as it may cause deformation of the module frame.
CAUTION: HIGH VOLTAGE! To reduce the risk of electric shock, do not touch.
PŘED POUŽITÍM MODULŮ SI POZORNĚ PŘEČTĚTE TUTO PŘÍRUČKU
DŮLEŽITÉ BEZPEČNOSTNÍ POKYNY
V této příručce jsou uvedeny důležité bezpečnostní pokyny týkající se PV-modulu, které musíte dodržovat při jeho údržbě.
Abyste snížili nebezpečí úrazu elektrickým proudem, neprovádějte žádné servisní opravy, pokud k nim nemáte dostatečnou kvalifikaci.

Instalaci musí provést kvalifikovaný montér nebo servisní pracovník, který zajistí integritu a bezpečnost systému.
Před instalací je nutno přečíst si a pochopit OBECNÝ NÁVOD K INSTALACI a NÁVOD K INSTALACI FOTOVOLTAICKÉHO MODULU. Pokud nemáte svůj vlastní výtisk, obraťte
se laskavě na montéra nebo místní pobočku společnosti Sharp, která je uvedena na webové stránce Sharp Solar : URL : http://www.sharp-world.com/solar
Nevytahujte PV-kabely.
Nedotýkejte se nikde povrchu modulu.
Na PV-moduly nesmíte pokládat ani upustit žádné předměty.
Nerozebírejte a nepokoušejte se opravovat PV-modul sami.
Dávejte pozor, abyste PV-modul nepustili.
Nepoškozujte, netahejte, neohýbejte kabely, ani je nezatěžujte těžkými předměty.
Po dokončení každé údržby nebo opravy požádejte montéra nebo servisního pracovníka, aby provedl běžnou kontrolu a ujistil se, že PV-moduly jsou v bezpečném a řádném
provozním stavu.
Pokud je nutná výměna náhradních dílů, ujistěte se, že montér nebo servisní pracovník používá výhradně díly specifikované výrobcem, které mají stejné parametry jako
originální díly. Neschválené výměny mohou způsobit požár, úraz elektrickým proudem nebo jiné nebezpečí.
Pro potřebná povolení a příslušné směrnice se obraťte na místní stavební a bezpečnostní odbor.
V oblastech se sněžením modul unese sněhovou zátěž až 50 cm (je-li namontován svisle / krátká strana rámu směřuje dolů) nebo 100 cm (je-li namontován vodorovně / dlouhá
strana rámu směřuje dolů).
V důsledku klouzání sněhu se mechanická zátěž zvýší, když se zvýší počet modulových řad v matrici instalace PV. Při montáži modulu ve svislé orientaci ve více než 3 řadách
může nashromážděný sníh způsobit deformaci dolního okraje rámu modulu. V zájmu prevence škod přijměte potřebná opatření (například zábranu proti sněhu).
Pravidelně odstraňujte přečnívající sníh nebo led z rámu modulu, neboť by mohly způsobit deformaci rámu.
POZOR: VYSOKÉ NAPĚTÍ ! Nedotýkejte se, abyste snížili nebezpečí úrazu elektrickým proudem.

Μην τραβάτε τα φωτοβολταϊκά καλώδια.
Μην αγγίζετε καμία επιφάνεια της μονάδας.
Μην τοποθετείτε / ρίχνετε αντικείμενα πάνω στις φωτοβολταϊκές μονάδες.
Μην αποσυναρμολογείτε τη φωτοβολταϊκή μονάδα ούτε να αποπειραθείτε να την επισκευάσετε μόνος σας.
Μην αφήσετε να σας πέσει η φωτοβολταϊκή μονάδα.
Μην προκαλείτε ζημιές στα καλώδια, ούτε να τα τραβάτε, να τα τσακίζετε ή να τοποθετείτε πάνω τους βαριά υλικά.
Κατά την ολοκλήρωση οποιωνδήποτε εργασιών συντήρησης ή επισκευών, ζητήστε από τον ειδικό εγκατάστασης / συντήρησης να πραγματοποιήσει τους συνήθεις ελέγχους
έτσι ώστε να διαπιστώσει ότι οι φωτοβολταϊκές μονάδες λειτουργούν σωστά και με ασφάλεια.
Όταν απαιτείται η αντικατάσταση εξαρτημάτων, βεβαιωθείτε ότι ο ειδικός εγκατάστασης / συντήρησης χρησιμοποιεί τα εξαρτήματα που ορίζονται από τον κατασκευαστή με
χαρακτηριστικά ίδια με τα αυθεντικά εξαρτήματα. Οι μη εξουσιοδοτημένες αντικαταστάσεις μπορούν να οδηγήσουν σε πυρκαγιά, ηλεκτροπληξία και άλλους κινδύνους.

È possibile eseguire l’installazione solo dopo aver letto e compreso il MANUALE GENERALE D’INSTALLAZIONE e il MANUALE D’INSTALLAZIONE – MODULO FOTOVOLTAICO.
In caso l’utente non sia in possesso di una copia dei suddetti manuali, si prega di rivolgersi al proprio addetto all’installazione o al punto vendita Sharp più vicino, indicato al sito
Internet Sharp Solar: URL : http://www.sharp-world.com/solar
Non tirare i cavi del modulo fotovoltaico.
Non toccare alcuna superficie del modulo.
Non posizionare/lasciar cadere oggetti sul modulo fotovoltaico.
Non smontare né tentare di riparare il modulo fotovoltaico senza l’assistenza di un tecnico qualificato.
Non lasciar cadere il modulo fotovoltaico.
Non danneggiare, tirare, piegare né posizionare materiali pesanti sui cavi.
Al termine delle operazioni di manutenzione o riparazione, chiedere all’addetto all’installazione/manutenzione di eseguire i controlli di routine per stabilire che i moduli fotovoltaici siano
in perfette condizioni di funzionamento.
In caso di necessità di pezzi di ricambio, assicurarsi che l’addetto all’installazione/manutenzione utilizzi i pezzi di ricambio indicati dal fabbricante, con le stesse caratteristiche dei pezzi
originali. Sostituzioni non autorizzate potrebbero provocare incendi, scosse elettriche o altre situazioni pericolose.
Rivolgersi all’ufficio locale responsabile per la sicurezza e l’edilizia per quanto riguarda i permessi necessari e le relative disposizioni.
Nelle zone soggette a innevamento, il modulo è in grado di sostenere un carico di neve fino a 50 cm (quando il modulo è installato con orientamento verticale/con il lato corto del telaio
rivolto verso il basso) o 100 cm (quando il modulo è installato con orientamento orizzontale/con il lato lungo del telaio rivolto verso il basso).
Come conseguenza dello scivolamento della neve, il carico meccanico aumenta all’aumentare del numero di righe di moduli nella matrice di un impianto fotovoltaico. Installando
il modulo con orientamento verticale per più di 3 righe, il carico della neve accumulata può causare una deformazione del bordo inferiore del telaio del modulo. Adottare le misure
necessarie (ad es. fermaneve) per evitare possibili danni.
Rimuovere periodicamente la neve e/o il ghiaccio sporgenti dal telaio dei moduli perché possono causare deformazioni al modulo stesso.
ATTENZIONE: ALTA TENSIONE! Al fine di ridurre il rischio di scosse elettriche, non toccare.

GENERAL INSTALLATION MANUAL
ND / NU Series
PLEASE READ THIS MANUAL CAREFULLY BEFORE INSTALLING OR USING THE MODULES.
PLEASE PASS ALONG THE ATTACHED USER MANUAL (PAGE 8 – 14) TO YOUR CUSTOMER.
1. INTRODUCTION
This Installation Manual contains essential information for the electrical and mechanical installation that you must know before installing Sharp PV modules. This
also contains safety information you need to be familiar with. All the information described in this manual are the intellectual property of Sharp and based on the
technologies and experiences that have been acquired and accumulated in the long history of Sharp. This document does not constitute a guaranty, expressed or
implied. Sharp does not assume responsibility and expressly disclaims liability for loss, damage, or expense arising out of or in any way connected with installation,
operation, use or maintenance of the PV modules. No responsibility is assumed by Sharp for any infringement of patents or other rights of third parties that may
result from use of PV module. Sharp reserves the right to make changes to the product, specifications or installation manual without prior notice.

3. GENERAL INFORMATION (INCLUDING WARNING AND SAFETY)
The installation of PV modules requires a great degree of skill and should only be performed by a qualified licensed professional, including licensed contractors and
licensed electricians. Please be aware that there is a serious risk of various types of injury occurring during the installation including the risk of electric shock. All
Sharp PV modules are equipped with a permanently attached junction box that will accept variety of wiring applications or with a special cable assembly for ease of
installation, and they do not require special assembly.
< GENERAL WARNING >
1. PV modules are heavy. Handle with care.
2. Before you attempt to install, wire, operate and maintain the PV module, please make sure that you completely understand the information described in this
installation manual.
3. Contact with electrically active parts of a PV module such as terminals can result in burns, sparks and lethal shock whether the PV modules is connected or
not.
4. PV modules produce electricity when the sufficient sunlight or other sources illuminate the module surface. When the modules are connected in series, voltage is
cumulative. When the modules are connected in parallel, current is cumulative. As a result, a large-scale PV system can produce high voltage and current which
could present an increased hazard and may cause serious injury or death.
5. Do not connect the PV modules directly to the loads such as motor since the variation of the output power depending on the solar irradiation causes damage for
the connected motor.
1: In the case of a brushless motor, the lock function becomes active and the hall IC is most likely to be damaged.
2: In the case of a brush type motor, the coil is most likely to be damaged.
6. In case of snow build-up, snow would slide easier on the smooth surface of the module than other parts of the roof. Snow may suddenly slide, fall off the roof
and hit nearby objects/areas. Take preventive measures (e. g. snow stopper) when there is possible risk such case would cause an injury or a damage.
< GENERAL SAFETY >
1. Consult local codes and other applicable laws concerning required permits on regulations concerning installation and inspection requirements.
2. Before installing a PV module, contact appropriate authorities to determine permit, installation and inspection requirements that should be followed.
3. Install PV modules and ground frames in accordance with applicable rules and regulations.
4. PV modules should be installed and maintained by qualified personnel. Only installer/servicer personnel should have access to the PV module installation site.
5. No matter where the PV modules are installed, either roof mounted construction or any other type of structures above the ground, appropriate safety practices
should be followed and required safety equipment should be used in order to avoid possible safety hazards. Note that the installation of some PV modules on
roofs may require the addition of fireproofing, depending on local building/fire codes.

In the case that the PV modules are non-integral type, the module is to be mounted over a fire resistant roof.
Please use PV modules with same cell size within series.
Follow all safety precautions of other components used in the system.
In order to avoid a risk of injury or electrical shock, do not allow anyone to approach the PV module if the person has little knowledge on PV module or on the
measures that should be taken when PV modules are damaged.
Do not shade portions of the PV module surface from the sunlight for a long time. The shaded cell may become hot (hot spot phenomenon) which results in
solder joints peeling off. Shading causes drop in generated power and/or operation failure of the PV modules.
Do not clean the glass surface with chemicals. Do not let water stay on the glass surface of PV modules for a long time. This creates a risk of white efflorescence
(glass disease) which may result in the deterioration of energy generation.
Do not install the PV module horizontally. It may cause dirt or white efflorescence (glass disease) due to water.
Do not cover the water drain gap of the frame. There is a risk of frost damage when the frame is filled with water cumulation.
When sliding snow load has to be considered, an appropriate measure has to be taken so that PV module frames on lower edge of PV modules will not be
damaged.
Do not expose PV module to sunlight concentrated with mirrors, lenses or similar means.
Turn off inverters and circuit breakers immediately, should a problem occur.
In case the glass surface of a PV module is broken, wear goggles and tape the glass to keep the broken pieces in place.
A defective PV module may generate power even if it is removed from the system. It may be dangerous to handle the PV module while exposed to sunlight. Place
a defective PV module in a carton so PV cells are completely shaded.
In case of series connection, the maximum open circuit voltage must not be greater than the specified maximum system voltage. The voltage is proportional
to the number of series. In case of parallel connection, please be sure to take proper measure (e. g. fuse for protection of module and cable from over current,
and/or blocking diode for prevention of unbalanced strings voltage) to block the reverse current flow. The current may easily flow in a reverse direction.
Keep modules away from children.
< HANDLING SAFETY >
1. Do not cause an excessive load on the surface of PV module or twist the frame. The glass surface can easily break.
2. Do not stand or step on the PV module. The surface glass of PV module is slippery.
3. Do not hit or put excessive load on the glass or back sheet. The PV cell is very thin and can be easily broken.
4. Do not scratch or hit at the back sheet. The back sheet is vulnerable.
5. Do not hit on the terminal box or do not pull the cables. The terminal box can crack and break.
6. Never touch terminal box or the end of output cables with bare hands when the PV module is irradiated. Cover the surface of PV module with cloth or other
suitable sufficiently opaque material to isolate the PV module from incident light and handle the wires with rubber-gloved hands to avoid electric shock.
7. Do not scratch the output cable or bend it with force. The insulation of output cable can break and may result in electricity leakage or shock.
8. Do not pull the output cable excessively. The output cable may unplug and cause electricity leakage or shock.
9. Do not drill holes in the frame. It may compromise the frame strength and cause corrosion of the frame.
10. Do not scratch the insulation coating of the frame (except for grounding connection). It may cause corrosion of the frame or compromise the framework
strength.
11. Do not loosen or remove the screws of the PV module. It may compromise the joint strength of PV module and cause corrosion.
12. Do not touch the PV module with bare hands. The frame of PV module has sharp edges and may cause injury.
13. Do not drop PV module or allow objects to fall down on the PV module.
14. Do not try artificially to concentrate sunlight on the PV module.
15. Do not grab the PV module at only one side. The frame may bend. Grab the PV module at two sides facing each other.
< INSTALLATION SAFETY >
1. Always wear protective head gear, insulating gloves and safety shoes (with rubber soles).
2. Keep the PV module packed in the carton until installation.
3. Do not touch the PV module unnecessarily during installation. The glass surface and the frames get hot. There is a risk of burn, or you may collapse because of
electric shock.
4. Do not work under rain, snow or windy conditions.
5. Use insulated tools.
6. Do not use wet tools.
7. Do not drop tools or hard objects on PV modules
8. When installing PV modules far above ground, do not drop any object (e. g., PV module or tools).
9. Make sure flammable gases are not generated near the installation site.
10. Completely cover the PV module surface with an opaque material during PV module installation and wiring.
11. Plug in the connector tight and ensure the wiring work.

GENERAL INSTALLATION MANUAL
12. Due to the risk of electrical shock, do not perform any work if the terminals of PV module are wet.
13. Do not touch the terminal box and the end of output cables, the cable ends (connectors), with bare hands during installation or under sunlight, regardless of
whether the PV module is connected to or disconnected from the system.
14. Do not unplug the connector if the system circuit is connected to a load.
15. Do not stomp on the glass at work. There is a risk of injury or electric shock if glass is broken.
16. Do not work alone (always work as a team of 2 or more people).
17. Wear a safety belt if working far above the ground.
18. Do not wear metallic jewelry which can cause electric shock during installation.
19. Do not damage the back sheet of PV modules when fastening the PV modules to a support by bolts.
20. Do not damage the surrounding PV modules or mounting structure when replacing a PV module.
21. Bind cables by the insulation locks. Drooping down of cables from the terminal box could possibly cause various problems such as animal biting, electricity leakage in puddle.
22. Take proper measures for preventing the laminate (consisted of resin, cells, glass, back sheet, etc.) from dropping out of the frame in case the glass is broken.
23. Cables shall be located so that they will not be exposed to direct sunlight after installation to prevent degradation of cables.
24. If batteries are used with modules, follow safety precautions of the battery manufacturer.
25. In case of extreme snow build-up, the weight of the snow may cause the module’s frame to deform. Take appropriate preventive measures to minimize any possible resulting damage.
4. SITE SELECTION
In most applications, the PV modules should be installed in a location where there is no shading throughout the year. In the Northern Hemisphere, the PV modules
should typically face south, and in the Southern Hemisphere, the PV modules should typically face north.
Please make sure that there are no obstructions in the surroundings of the site of installation. Take proper steps in order to maintain reliability and safety, in case
the PV modules are used in areas such as: Heavy snow areas/Extremely cold areas/Strong wind areas/Installations over, or near, water/Areas where installations are
prone to salt water damage(*)/Small islands or desert areas.
(*) If you are planning to use the PV modules where the salt water damage may be possible, please consult with Sharp local agent first to determine an appropriate installation method, or to
determine whether the installation is possible.
5. TILT ANGLE
The tilt angle of the PV module is the measured between the PV module and a horizontal ground surface. The PV module generates the maximum output power
when it faces the sun directly.
5 degrees or more is recommended for the tilt angle of the PV module for the maintenance (See 11. Maintenance).
For the standalone systems with a battery where the PV modules are attached to a permanent structure, the tilt angle of the PV modules should be determined to
optimize the performance when the sunlight is the scarcest. In general, if the electric power generation is adequate when the sunlight is the scarcest, then the angle
chosen should be adequate during the rest of the year. For grid-connected installations where the PV modules are attached to a permanent structure, it is recommended to tilt the PV module at the angle equal to the latitude of the installation site so that the power generation from the PV module will be optimum throughout
the year.
6. WIRING
To ensure proper system operation and to maintain your guaranty, observe the correct cable connection polarity (Figures 1 & 2) when connecting the modules to a
battery or to other modules. If not connected correctly, the bypass diode could be destroyed.
PV modules can be wired in series to increase voltage. Connect wires from the positive terminal of one module to the negative terminal of the next module. Figure 1
shows modules connected in series.
Connect PV modules in parallel to increase current. Connect wires from the positive terminal of one module to the positive terminal on the next module. Figure 2
shows modules connected in parallel.

GENERAL INSTALLATION MANUAL
7. INSTALLATION
Refer to installation manual of PV module.
8. ELECTRICAL RATINGS
Refer to installation manual of PV module.
9. GROUNDING
The frame grounding must consider the local requirement and regulation at the site of installation. When grounding is required, please refer to below example connection (Figure 3). Please be careful in arranging the system ground so that the removal of one module from the circuit will not interrupt the grounding of any other
modules.
The modules should be grounded to the same electrical point as described below. Each PV module has a hole on the side frame for either a bolt, nut and washer
grounding the module to the frame, a ground lug fastened by bolt or screw, or appropriate screw (hardware not provided). Near the hole for ground, either
“ ” or “G“ is indicated as ground symbol. An example of acceptable ground connection using a bolt, nut and washer retaining a ground lug is shown in figure 3.
In a connection of this type, the hardware (such as a toothed locked washer/star washer) must score the frame surface to make positive electrical contact with the
frame. The ground wire must be considered within the local requirement of local and regulation at the site of installation.

10. MOUNTING
Please make sure that all the information described in the installation manual is still valid and proper for your installation. The mounting method has been verified by
Sharp and NOT CERTIFIED by a third party organization.
The approved way to mount Sharp PV modules to a support structure is using the bolt holes provided as described in the Specifications. Although Sharp does not
specify or warrant frame clips or clamps, using frame clips (not provided) or clamps (not provided) is also possible when they are designed for PV modules and with
minimum dimensions on the sides of the module in accordance with the instructions and drawings provided. If using frame clips or clamps, the modules should
be fixed rigidly and there shall be no damage to the modules by deforming mounting structure against design load. The Sharp module guaranty may be void if
customer-selected frame clips which are improper or inadequate with respect to the module properties (including strength or material) or installation. Note that if
metal clips are used, there must be a path to ground from the clips, (for instance, using star washers in the clip hardware set).
Please review the descriptions and drawings carefully; not mounting the modules according to one of these methods may void your guaranty. These mounting
methods are designed to allow module loading of 2,400 Pa. Support structures that PV modules are mounted on should be rigid. Sharp PV modules are designed to
secure their electric performance under the condition that they are mounted on rigid support structures. Deformation of support structure may damage PV module
with its electric performance. When mounting the module on structure, ensure that no corner has a displacement of more than 2 mm per every 1,000 mm of the
diagonal.
11. MAINTENANCE
The modules are designed for long life and require very little maintenance. If the angle of the PV module is 5 degrees or more, normal rainfall is sufficient to keep
the module glass surface clean under most weather conditions. If dirt build-up becomes excessive, clean the glass surface only with a soft cloth using water. If cleaning the back of the module is required, take utmost care not to damage the back side materials. In order to ensure the operation of the system, please check the
connection of wiring and the state of the jacket of wires every now and then. For PV modules with anti-reflective coating glass (ND-R250A5 to ND-R220A5 and
NU-R250J5 to NU-R240J5), do not touch the glass since finger prints or stains will easily mark the glass. If dirt build-up becomes excessive, clean the glass surface
with water only.

The mounting method has been verified by Sharp and NOT CERTIFIED by a third party organization. Please review the descriptions and drawings carefully; not
mounting the modules according to one of these methods may void your guaranty. These mounting methods are designed to allow module loading of 2,400 Pa.
Mounting Using Frame Bolt Holes (Figures 1 & 2)
The modules may be fastened to a support using the bolt holes in the bottom of the frame at location “C”, as shown in Figure 1 (back view of the module) and
Figure 2 (mounting detail). The module should be fastened with four (4) M8 bolts. Recommended torque 12.5 Nm.
Mounting Using Clips on Long Edge of Module: Long Edge Parallel to Array Rails (Figure 4)
The modules may be mounted using clips (clamps) designed for solar modules as shown in Figures 3 and 4. Note that the clip positions are important – the clip
centerlines must be between 150 mm and 410 mm from the end of the module. The module must be supported along the length of the long edge, and should
overlap the array rail by at least 10 mm. Note that the mounting clips should meet the minimum dimensions (catch width of 5 mm and length of 38 mm) as shown in
Figure 3. The array rails must support the bottom of the frames and must be continuous pieces (no breaks in the rail).
Mounting Using Clips on Long Edge of Module: Long Edge Perpendicular to Array Rails (Figure 5)
The modules may also be mounted using clips on the long sides of the module when the array rails are perpendicular to the long sides, as shown in Figure 5. The clip
centerlines must be between 150 mm and 410 mm from the ends of the module. Note that the mounting clips should meet the minimum dimensions (catch width of
5 mm and length of 38 mm) shown in Figure 3. The array rails must support the bottom of the modules and must be continuous pieces (no breaks in the rail).
