It has been unanimously praised by the global distributed module market and professionals, and favored by distributors and customers around the world. Thanks to the advanced design and outstanding craftsmanship, it perfectly meets the high standards of the Red Dot Design Award from product function to appearance design.

The beauty of modern craftsmanship

Trina Solar’s Vertex S series modules feature innovative and design-inspired aesthetics along with excellent product performance. Vertex S comes with several design options, including the all-black appearance, to match different architectural styles and application scenarios. This gives more possibilities for distributed rooftop spaces, while keeping the commitment to environmental protection.

For the Vertex S all-black module, Trina’s designers decided to use black as the dominant color upon thorough market research and creative discussion at the early stage of design. The module adopts black cells with ultra-fine busbars, together with the fine layout of the black frame and back sheet, black label and string busbars, making the whole product visually appealing. The unique and outstanding aesthetic effect of the all-black design carries a simple and advanced temperament, highlighting the beauty of modern craftsmanship.

Perfect redesign with “Small in Size, Big on Power”
