ENconcentrator module, CPV module 
a group of receivers (PV cells mounted in some way), optics, and other related components, such as interconnections and mechanical enclosures, integrated together into a modular package. The module is typically assembled in a factory and shipped to an installation site to be installed along with other modules on a solar tracker

Note 1 to entry: A CPV module typically does not have a field-adjustable focus point. In addition, a module could be made of several sub-modules. The sub-module is a smaller, modular portion of the full-size module, which might be assembled into the full module either in a factory or in the field.
