Seaward PV210 Solar Installation Test Kit Solar PV tester and I-V curve tracer The Seaward Solar PV210 PV installation tester provides a highly efficient and effective test and diagnostic solution for PV systems, carrying out all commissioning tests required by IEC 62446 and performing fast and accurate measurement of I-V curves in accordance with IEC 61829. Seaward PV210 Solar Installation Test Kit × With direct connection to individual PV modules or strings using the supplied lead sets, tests can be conducted easily and within a matter of seconds at the press of a single button. A high contrast display is clearly visible in direct sunlight and shows open circuit voltage, short circuit current, maximum power point voltage, current and power, as well as the fill factor of the PV module or system under test, and insulation resistance (as part of an auto sequence or a discrete probe to probe measurement). If the measured curve deviates from the expected profile, the PV210 alerts the user to this, identifying the need for further analysis. Detailed and colour I-V and power curves, can be viewed instantly once data is transferred to the PVMobile Android App using wireless NFC connectivity. PVMobile displays measured I-V and power curves for visual analysis of the curve shape, enabling common problems such as shading, defective cells or poor electrical connections to be identified. The PV210 is available as part of the Solarlink test kit which includes the Survey 200R irradiance meter. As well as being a comprehensive survey tool, the Survey 200R wirelessly transmits irradiance and temperature data to the PV210 so that it can be transferred to the PVMobile app alongside the rest of the test data. PVMobile can be used to convert measured data to STC for comparison with manufacturer’s published data.
