Trina TSM – NEG9R.28 435 Wp passed the hail test

The Trina 435 TSM-435NEG9R.28 – Trina Vertex S+ dual glass 435 Wp – MC4 module has passed the industry standard hail test.

In fact, for all Trina Vertex + modules NEG9R.28, a certificate has been issued by TÜV Rheindland in relation to the hail resistance of the glass/ glass modules.

To verify the resistance to hail there is a test required by the IEC 61215 standard (MQ17 Hail test). In this test, the standard rule requires 25 mm hail balls to be launched at 23 m/s. Most manufacturers perform these tests based on these hail sizes and speeds.

For the NEG9R.28 the test was carried out with larger hail balls (35 mm) and at a higher speed (27 m/s) and the test result is satisfactory.

This new milestone joins the other numerous module certifications for Trina products and production system and thanks to compliance with quality standards it is part of the VP Solar product portfolio.


  • IEC61215/IEC61730/IEC61701/IEC62716
  • ISO 9001: Quality Management System
  • ISO 14001: Environmental Management System
  • ISO 14064: Greenhouse Gases Emissions Verifications
  • ISO45001: Occupational Health and Safety Management System

It also has excellent resistance to fire and difficult weather and environmental conditions with a resistance to snow load 5,400 Pa and wind load 4,000 Pa (test loads). Its technical characteristics make it ideal for small-medium sized residential and C&I installations.


Trina Solar Vertex S+ TSM-xxxNEG9R.28 – MC4 – 144 cells – 435 Wp

Vertex S+ TSM-xxxNEG9R.28 – MC4 is a 144-cell monocrystalline photovoltaic module.

  • 25 years product warranty, 30 years linear performance warranty
  • Maximum efficiency 22,5%
  • Available size: 435 Wp

It features a double-glass design, making it less prone to microcracks and scratches during installation.

Trina Vertex S+ is compatible with existing conventional inverters and various mounting systems. Due to its low weight, it is easy to move and mount and is the most viable solution for low-capacity roofs.

This model has excellent resistance to weathering, salt spray and ammonia corrosion, and is therefore applicable in coastal areas; due to the excellent temperature coefficients, the power loss due to cell temperature rise is very small.

Trina Vertex+ module is supplied with MC4-EVO2 connector.

Snow and wind resistance

Vertex S+ TSM-xxxNEG9R.28 – MC4 is resistant to a snow load of 5400 Pa and a wind load of 4000 Pa.


Trina Solar presents an extended product warranty of 25 years, and a linear performance warranty of 30 years due to its low degradation, due to N-type cells.

Trina Solar guarantees a maximum degradation of 1% in the first year arriving at a minimum performance of 87.4% after 30 years.
