The Seaward Solar PV150 Installation Test Kit enables the electrical safety and performance of solar PV installations to be fully tested in accordance with National and State requirements as well as the new IEC 62446 requirements. In addition the Seaward PV150 Solar Tester has an onboard memory capable of storing up to 200 test records which can be downloaded to a PC via USB and new Solarlink connectivity allowing wireless capture of irradiance & temperature data from the Seaward Solar 200R Survey Meter.

The Solar PV150 Test Kit allows ground continuity, insulation resistance, open circuit voltage, short circuit current and operational testing to be performed on a PV system and is supplied with MC4 test leads for direct connection with solar PV strings, modules and arrays for safer testing.

When used in tandem with additional Seaward SolarCert Elements software, the 200 result memory of the PV150 can be quickly downloaded and imported into professional test certificates and reports.

New Seaward Solarlink allows the Solar PV 150 Installation Tester to connect wirelessly with a Solar Survey 200R and record real time solar irradiance, ambient temperature and PV module temperature data. This added features means that users can simultaneously take all the measurements required by all state and national best practice protocol. The Seaward Solar PV150 is the test tool for PV Installer.

Test functions:

  • Ground continuity measurement
  • Ground test lead null (up to 10Ω) for long test-lead
  • PV string open circuit voltage measurement up to 1000V DC
  • Polarity Indication
  • PV string short circuit current measurement up to 15A DC
  • PV array insulation test at 250/500/1000V

The kit contains:

  • 1 x PV150 solar installation tester
  • 1 x AC/DC current clamp
  • 2 x MC4 test leads (Red & Black)
  • 1 x Red and Black Test leads, with test probe with detachable alligator clips
  • 1 x PV150 Calibration Certificate
  • 1 x Rugged carry bag
  • 1 x Quick Start Guides
