The requirement to perform electrical safety tests on PV Installations to ensure commissioning documentation is completed correctly is now becoming a mandatory requirement in many US states. With this in mind Seaward Solar has developed the most advanced PV Installtion Test Kit to fufill every installer / commisioning engineers needs.

The Solarlink™ Test Kit meets all of the commissioning test requirements of IEC 62446 and those of local, national and best practice guidelines such as NABCEP. It combines the Seaward Solar PV150 installation tester with the advanced Solar Survey 200R multifunction irradiance / survey meter; offering a complete solution to PV installation testing.

The Solarlink™ test kit includes all of the necessary equipment to measure the electrical safety and performance of photovoltaic (PV) systems as well as capturing real time irradiance and ambient / panel temperatures through a wireless RF connection from the SS200R survey meter.

Transforming the way that PV systems are tested, the PV150 replaces the three separate instruments which are ordinarily used for commissioning tests; combining ground continuity, insulation resistance, open circuit voltage, short circuit current, operating current (uses supplied AC/DC current) and DC operating power test functions into one handheld unit. The kit includes MC4 adaptors (other adaptors available on request) which enable safe and easy connection of the tester to the installation PV modules, strings or array.

As well as a comprehensive range of electrical test functions, the PV150 has built in memory to store up to 200 complete test records with USB connectivity to enable these to be quickly and easily downloaded to a PC. When coupled with Seaward’s SolarCert Elements software program, professional test certificates and reports can be created.

If you an installer who wants to improve efficiency, reduce costs and also have proof and traceability of a quality installation for you and your clients confidence, then this is the only tester on the US market which provides the solution.
