Solar Panel Labels Meet IEC Requirements

Solar Panel Farm with Labels

Solar energy is becoming increasingly popular as a source of clean and renewable energy and the construction of solar panel farms more frequent. One important aspect of installing solar panels is the use of phenolic labels for identification and safety purposes for the solar panel farm. The use of phenolic labels is critical for the safe and efficient operation of solar panels as they provide important information about the solar panel and its components. The labels also provide warnings about potential hazards associated with the PV module. This information is essential for installers, maintenance workers, and emergency responders.

Solar panel labels must meet the requirements of industry standards such as the IEC 61215 and IEC 61730 standards, as well as the NEC requirements. The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) has established standards for the labeling of solar panels. The IEC 61215 and IEC 61730 standards specify the requirements for the performance and safety of photovoltaic (PV) modules. The IEC 61215 standard specifies 1) that the labels must be durable and able to withstand outdoor exposure for at least 25 years.  2) The labels must also be resistant to water, humidity, and UV radiation. T3) he label must be legible and the information must remain visible throughout the lifespan of the solar panel. The IEC 61730 standard requires that 1) the labels must provide information about the potential hazards associated with the PV module. 2) The label must include warnings about the dangers of high voltage and must be able to withstand the heat generated by the solar panel. 3) The label must also be resistant to fire and able to prevent the spread of flames. In addition to the IEC standards, the National Electrical Code (NEC) also has requirements for the labeling of solar panels. The NEC requires that the labels must be 1) visible and legible from a distance of at least 6 feet.2)  The label must include the maximum system voltage, the maximum current, and the type of wiring used. 3) The label must also include the date of installation and the name and address of the installer.

Engraved signs and nameplates are a crucial part of solar panel installations, and Action Engraving is an expert in manufacturing engraved phenolic labels for solar panels that meet the requirement for industry standards. We make solar panel labels from a durable and heat-resistant material that can withstand the harsh conditions of a solar panel installation and that are engraved with the information required such as the manufacturer’s name, model number, voltage rating, and electrical specifications. The labels withstand the high temperatures and UV radiation that are common in solar applications and are resistant to chemicals, solvents, and oils. Action Engraving has been making custom-engraved signs for over 30 years and has completed projects for solar installation projects around the country. We deliver the labels needed to meet the requirements of any solar project, and our industry-leading fast turnaround time ensures that solar panel installers and other professionals receive the engraved signage necessary to keep their projects on track.
