The Seaward PV150 Solar Installation Tester allows electrical safety and performance verification of photovoltaic installations in a safe and easy-to-use device.
Transforming the way PV systems are tested, the PV150 combines ground continuity, DC operating power and operating current test functions in a hand-held device. It can also test insulation resistance, open circuit voltage and short circuit current at the push of a button. The unit can also wirelessly capture and record real time irradiance, ambient temperature and PV module temperature measurements from the Solar Survey 200R.
The PV150 has memory to store up to 200 complete test records with USB connectivity to enable these to be quickly and easily downloaded to a PC. Professional test certificates and reports can also be created when used with Seawards SolarCert software.
PV150 Test Kit Features:
- Ground (earth) continuity measurement with test lead null for long test-leads.
- PV string open circuit voltage measurement up to 1000V DC with polarity indication.
- PV string short circuit current measurement up to 15A DC.
- PV array insulation test at 250/500/1000V.
- Tests individual PV modules or strings.
- Memory for up to 200 records and USB download to PC (CSV file).
- High contrast display, visible in bright light.
Solar Survey 200R Irradiance Meter-The 200R connects wirelessly to the PV150 and gives real-time irradiance, ambient temperature and PV module temperature measurement results simultaneously to electrical tests being conducted. Results can be downloaded from the PV150 into the SolarCert reporting software included in the kit.
Solar Survey 200R Mounting Bracket-The Solar Survey 200R Mounting Bracket allows you to connect your Irradiance Meter to your solar panel and position it at the same angle as the module for optimum accuracy and ease of measurement which means that you’ll have more hands free for testing in the field.
AC/DC Current Clamp -The lightweight Solar AC/DC Current Clamp is a compact instrument capable of providing accurate measurements of AC or DC currents in conductors measuring up to 22mm in diameter. Used in conjunction with the PV150, AC and DC currents can be measured from 0.5A to 40.0A.
SolarCert Solar PV Reporting Software – Seaward SolarCert solar PV reporting software allows you to easily download and manipulate data from your PV150 and create professional reports for your customers.
Other Included Accessories -The PV150 solar PV complete test kit also comes with 2x MC4 test lead adaptors, 2x combiner box test probes and detachable alligator clips (MC4), 2x test leads with detachable alligator clips (4mm), USB download cable, rugged carry bag, quick start guide, calibration certificates and a 2 year warranty.
