The Seaward PV200 Solar PV Tester and I-V Curve Tracer (389A910) is a highly efficient, all-in-one instrument suitable for testing and diagnosing problems within a solar photovoltaic electrical installation. Not only able to conduct all of the installation tests detailed in BS EN 62446, the Seaward PV200 will also quickly measure I-V (current/voltage) curves in accordance with IEC 61829, suitable for regular PV maintenance and ongoing PV efficiency testing.
Supplied with positive and negative MC4 test leads, the Seaward Solar PV200 photovoltaic tester will easily connect to both single PV modules, or strings with multiple PV modules. Individual tests can be conducted manually for trouble-shooting applications, although the PV200 features an ‘auto’ mode that performs multiple tests at the push of a button allowing for straightforward, rapid verification of the DC side of a solar PV installation.
Measurements are presented on a high contrast screen, clearly visible in direct sunlight that displays the following test parameters:
