Safety guidelines | 3
2 Safety guidelines
The setup and commissioning of the electrical system
may only be performed by a specialist electrician in
observance of the following guidelines, since improper
performance of this work can lead to damage and injury.
When performing work on solar generators – primarily
on roofs – suitable safety precautions (e. g. fall arresting
devices) must be used. The regulations set forth by
Employers‘ Liability Insurance Associations must absolutely
be observed. For your own safety and to safeguard
your solar module, please observe the following safety
guidelines:
 During the setup and maintenance of solar modules,
the valid regulations and safety guidelines for the
installation of electrical devices and systems, as well
as the regulations set forth by the competent energy
supply company for the parallel grid operation of
solar power systems.
 Prior to setup, the solar module must be inspected
for mechanical soundness. Damaged solar modules
(e. g. modules with broken glass, damage to the insulation
film at the reverse) may not be set up.
Damage to the insulation film at the reverse has severe
potential consequences (delamination, endangerment
of life and health).
 Definitely align the solar module so as to avoid a
shadowing effect (even to a temporary or partial
extent: e. g. due to roof dormers, trees), since this
can lead to damage in the solar modules (e. g. formation
of „hot spots“), failure of the PV generator and
loss of output.
 The serial connection of the modules (addition of the
module voltages) may result in voltages above the
safety extralow voltage of 120 V DC!
 The modules have been classified for Application
Class A: dangerous voltage (IEC 61730: 50 V, EN
61730: greater than 120 V)
 Even when the light intensity is low, one must reckon
with the full atrest voltage of the modules – that is to
Important notice!
say, in the course of setup, one must always exercise
the greatest caution with regard to electrical faults
(e. g. short circuits).
 The separation of conductors which carry direct current
can lead to light arcs. Therefore, prior to performing
any work on the solar system – particularly prior to
separating the plug connectors in the direct-current
circuit – it is essential to disconnect the frequency
inverter from the alternating-current grid.
 For roof-mounted systems, the modules must be
attached above a fireresistant surface.
 Solar modules may not be installed near easilyflammable
substances, gases or vapors.
 The guidelines on fires in electrical systems
(e. g. VDI 3819) apply hereto.
 The maximum permissible totalsystem voltage for
the frequency inverter may never be exceeded. In
addition, due to the negative temperature coefficient
of the solar modules, the atrest voltage of the total
system at the minimum permissible temperature
must also be calculated (see data sheet and module
type sign).
 The solar module is to be treated as a glass product
and may therefore not be used or walked on under
any circumstances in the transport container or used
as a placement area (e. g. for toolboxes), since this
can lead to visible or even invisible damage (e. g.
microcracks in the cells and with that, a premature
drop in output – among other faults).
 The module frames may not be drilled, nailed or
welded to a contact surface.
 The solar modules may not be held or transported by
their connector cables or by the connector socket.
 Solar modules may never be left standing freely or
unsecured.
 The safety guidelines set forth by the manufacturers
of other components of the solar system must be
followed.
 The drainage drill holes in hollowchamber frames may
not be covered.
 Bosch Solar modules meet the building regulation list
requirements for PV modules having a maximum glass
surface of by 2 m² as established by the DIBt
(Deutsches Institut für Bautechnik, [German Institute
for Building Technology]).

3 Positioning guidelines
In order to achieve the highest-possible annual energy
yield, we recommend positioning the module so as to
fulfill the following criteria:
 Definitely align the solar module so as to avoid a
shadowing effect (even to a temporary or partial
extent: e. g. due to roof dormers, trees), since this
can lead to damage in the solar modules (e. g. formation
of “hot spots”), failure of the PV generator and
loss of output.
 Prerequisite to installation on a flat roof is a hard
roofing seal per DIN 4102, Parts 4 and 7 – if there is
uncertainty about the roofing surface, please ask your
roofer.
 When arranging modules in open field systems, suitable
measures must be taken to ensure that readily
ignited organic materials (e.g. dry grass, hay) are
permanently removed from the vicinity of the system.
4 | Safety guidelines | Positioning guidelines
 Position the front of the solar module, so that it faces
the Equator.
 Select the angle of inclination according to the local
and structural factors (30° ± 15°). You will find specific
data on optimum module positions in the pertinent
specialized literature. The calculation of the
angle of inclination can be based on the following
formula: angle of inclination = latitude of the positioning
locality – 20°.
 All modules of a photovoltaic generator are to be
aligned at the same angle (horizontal as well as
vertical). In the event of angle deviations, separate
frequency converters are to be designated.
 In order to ensure sufficient selfcleaning, the angle of
inclination must amount to at least 10°.
 For optimized selfcleaning, a 15° minimum angle of
inclination is recommended.
 Always ensure that the reverse side of the module is
well ventilated.
 Modules must be mounted so that the rear of the
module does not come into contact with objects
behind it, even if a mechanical load is applied.
 To avoid increased strain of the modules due to wind
load, it is necessary to observe minimum distances
from building boundaries according to DIN 1055-4.
 A concentration of sunlight on the modules via mirrors
or lenses is prohibited.
 Avoid contact with salty water!
 The crystalline solar modules made by Bosch Solar
Energy have been tested in accordance with the
following norms for their response to contact with
salty air:
– IEC 61701: 1995
– DIN EN 61701: 2000-08
– IEC 60068-2-52.
Please observe the test conditions indicated in the
norms when using the modules in salty air.
Important notice!
In Germany the installation of a solar
module on a roof area having a slope
angle > 75° requires a general construction
permit.
Attention!
Due to heat accumulation under the
modules there is an increased fire hazard
associated with rooftop installations
which do not meet the aforementioned
requirements.

table 1: permissible fastening screws for direct installation
 Definitely align the solar module so as to avoid a
shadowing effect (even to a temporary or partial
extent: e. g. due to roof dormers, trees), since this
can lead to damage in the solar modules (e. g. formation
of “hot spots”), failure of the PV generator and
loss of output.
 The additional loads which arise by way of the weight
and the structural attachment of the PV system are to
be included in the structural analysis of the overall
construction.
 Verifications of stability, deflection and load parameters
are to be initiated by the constructor or the
operator of the system.
 Install the modules on a sufficiently-dimensioned,
load-bearing and permanently corrosion-resistant
substructure.
 Observe the specifications for mounting areas
according to table 2 and 3.
 The attachment of the solar module can be performed
with clamps (or as an alternative, directly on
the installation holes). When clamping systems are
used, the clamp surface per attachment point on the
module must amount to at least 400 mm². Furthermore,
under all conditions, a fastening point must
also be made for no more than every 400 mm² of
surface area.
 Position of the installation drill holes in accordance

are used.
 Attach the solar modules so that they with-stand all
foreseeable loads and weather-induced influences.
 Only use non-corrosive screws for the installation.
 The solar module must be installed without mechanical
tension and (to compensate material expansion
due to temperature fluctuations) with a minimum gap
of 5 mm to the next module.
 Particularly in exposed locations, sufficient lightning
protection is recommended.
 Integration into existing lightning protection systems
must occur in observance of the valid regulations.
 Only install solar modules edgewise (or crosswise),
with the connector socket facing upward.
 In the course of elevation, it must be ensured that no
rainwater or condensation water can run in the direction
of the cable screw connections on the connector
sockets.
 The solar module may not stand in tail water or condensation
water.

5 Circuitry guidelines
Only identical solar modules of the same type and engine-
power class may be switched. In this process, ensure
that in the course of the serial switching of the
modules, the maximum permissible system voltage is not
exceeded. In this context, observe the temperature
dependency of the module voltage for the solar modules,
particularly since the module voltage rises when low
temperatures prevail.
For the parallel switching of the modules, it must be
ensured that always the same number of modules is
serially switched to the stands to be switched parallel to
these, and that suitable measures for surge protection
are taken (e. g. strand fuse). It must be ensured that the
specified load capacity with regard to the reverse current
IR (in line with the respective, applicable data sheet) is
not exceeded.
Under standard conditions, a PV module can provide
higher current and/or higher voltage than was specified
under normed test conditions. To determine the voltagerating
values of structural components, the currentrating
values of cables, the sizes of fuses and the rating of
controls connected to the output of PV modules, the Isc
und Uoc values indicated on the module should therefore
be multiplied by a safety factor of 1.25.
No more than two module strands can be switched
parallel without a sufficiently-dimensioned strand fuse.

The solar modules are designated for use in gridcoupled
solar generators. When used for another purpose, the
respective deviating technical particularities must be
observed. The solar modules may only be installed by
qualified specialized companies. In this context, the
norms and regulations relevant to PV systems, such as
VDE provisions, DIN norms, VDEW guidelines, the TAB of
the competent system operators along with the rules set
forth by the Employers‘ Liability Insurance Associations
on accident prevention.
Particular reference is made once again to the following
items:
 Prior to the installation, the connector socket, cables
and plug connectors are to be checked for damage
and dirt.
 Do not install any damaged PV modules or any PV
modules with dirty plug connectors.
 The solar modules (particularly the plug connectors
and tools) must be dry during the installation.
 Provision of disconnect components between the
module and the inverter is mandatory. The disconnect
component must be readily accessible in order
to disconnect the direct current side if danger should
arise.
 Make sure that all electrical connections are properly
secured.
 For the switching of module strings, only suitable
(UV- and ozone-resistant, temperature resistance at
least between – 40°C and 110°C) cables are to be
used for outside installation.
 The cables must have a minimum cross-section of
4 mm², and the insulation must be approved for the
maximum system atrest voltage.

10 | Grounding | Maintenance and upkeep
Particularly in exposed locations, sufficient lightning
protection is recommended. Integration into existing
lightning-protection systems must occur in observance
of current country-specific norms and regulations. The
respective drill holes for grounding are marked on the
reverse side of the module frame.
Please perform the following grounding measures:
7 Grounding
Minimal maintenance and upkeep effort is required in
order to maintain the optimum output of the solar module.
In the interest of optimum system output, we recommend
to inspect and/or work through the following
items on a semiannual cycle:
 In the event of heavy or localized contamination (e. g.
with bird droppings), it is recommended to clean the
glass surface of the module with limefree water
which matches the module temperature and a soft
brush. No aggressive cleaning agents, acids or leaches
may be used.
 The electrical and mechanical connectors must be
checked for cleanliness, durability and sound condition.
Any irregularities must be remedied immediately.
 Regular verification of the yields by the operator is
recommended.
 The grass and weeds in and around open ground
area systems must be mowed regularly. This is necessary
to minimize the potential hazard of organic
material (e.g. dry grass, hay) combustion in the
vicinity of the system.
8 Maintenance and upkeep
 When connecting the plug connectors and the modules
(and when connecting the solar modules to the frequency
inverter), always ensure that the polarity is correct.
Reverse polarity leads to the destruction of important
technical structural components such as frequency
inverters, safety diodes or similar components.
 The connector cables are to be laid so as to ensure that
the minimum bend radius of 60 mm is not undershot.
 In order to avoid the hazard of electric shocks, all
frames of the solar modules as well as the support
structure for potential equalization must be connected
to the grounding so as to ensure good conductivity.
We recommend grounding outside the building.
In this process, observe the statutory regulations for
your region, along with the recommendations issued
by the frequency-inverter manufacturers and the
insurance company.
Never plug in or unplug the plug contacts when under
load current!
Important notice!
 Attachment of a fitting ring-cable socket (cable crosssection:
min. 2.1 mm²).
 Use of a fitting fastening screw (minimum diameter:
4 mm), a self-cutting serrated washer, a spring washer
and the fitting nut.
 Use of a fitting self-cutting screw. Two complete
thread turns of a screw must interlock with the
metal.
 Damaging contact corrosion can be avoided by using
corrosion-resistant materials.
 Position of the grounding drill holes in accordance
with figure 1 and 2

Disposal | Storage and transport | 11
Defective or old solar modules must be appropriately
disposed of. These may not be disposed of in household
waste.
9 Disposal
The handling of modules requires great diligence. Therefore,
caution is required when unpacking, transporting
and temporarily storing these modules:
 Do not set the modules down forcefully on hard
ground or on the edges.
 Avoid bending during transport or when unpacking.
 Do not drop the modules.
 Do not place any objects on the modules.
 Do not handle the modules using sharp objects.
10 Storage and transport
Important notice!
Important otice!
 In the course of storage and transport, it must be
ensured that each solar module is sufficiently reinforced.
 The stacking of packaging units can cause damage to
the solar modules and must definitely be avoided!
 The solar modules are to be secured against overturning!
 Layer pads must be used between the individual
solar modules.
We recommend storing all solar modules in dry interior
rooms and in the original packaging until their final
installation.
Modules being transported must be packaged securely in
accordance with local and European requirements. The
original packaging should be used wherever possible.
When setting the modules down or transporting them to
the immediate installation site (e. g. a roof), any damage
to the module is to be avoided.
The modules may not be grasped and transported on a
single frame component!
