Popular Articles

Intersolar North America 2011 — The new Seaward Solar Installation PV100 is the first dedicated multi-function electrical tester for those involved in solar panel installation.

TAMPA‚ Fla., June 13, 2011 /PRNewswire/ —

The new tester is capable of carrying out all electrical tests required by the international IEC 62446 standard for grid connected PV systems and eliminates the need for multiple test instruments for PV solar panel electrical installation and connection.

With the push of a single button the new combination tester carries out the required sequence of electrical tests in a safe and controlled manner, avoiding the risk of contact with exposed live DC conductors.

The rugged and robust Seaward Solar Installation PV100 is hand held and battery operated for maximum portability. The supplied MC4 and Sunclix test leads allow it to be connected quickly, easily and safely to all standard PV modules and arrays to test ground continuity‚ insulation resistance‚ open circuit voltage and short circuit currents.

All required measurements are performed automatically and displayed clearly with confirmation of whether the test results are acceptable. The instrument will also compare the performance of multiple strings and indicate whether the open circuit voltage or short circuit current measurements deviate by more than 5%.

An AC/DC current clamp is provided for the measurement of operation currents and the complete test kit, including all test probes‚ alligator clips, Sunclix and MC4 adaptor leads is supplied in a convenient carrying case.

In addition‚ a special SolarCert Elements manual entry PC software program is available for the recording of test data and the production of professional inspection reports and test certificates.
