Seaward SolarLink PV150 Installation Test Kit


SKU: 388A916K Category:

The Seaward PV150 SolarLink PV installation tester provides the exact measurement for open circuit voltage, short circuit current and insulation resistance for an individual panel or a complete series string. The PV150 tester allows for direct PV connection and all values are displayed by just pushing a button.

The way Seaward has designed their analysis tools has transformed the way solar systems commissioned. The PV150 is a three-in-one device combining earth and ground continuity, insulation resistance, open circuit voltage, short circuit current, operating current (using supplied AC/DC current clamp) and DC operating power test functions into one tool.

The SolarLink Test kit includes the Seward Solar Survey 220R. The PV150 communicates wirelessly with the Solar Survey 220R allowing you to receive and record irradiance and temperature measurements in real-time during your electrical tests.

The SolarLink is a complete test kit that includes the PV150 tester and the Solar Survey 220R; the kit will facilitate fast and accurate field measurements complying with IEC 62446, BS EN 62446, EN 62446 and other best practice standards.

The PV150 SolarLink PV Installation Test Kit Includes:
    1 x PV150 solar installation tester
    1 x Solar Survey 200R irradiance meter
    1 x AC/DC current clamp
    1 x Rugged carry bag
    2 x MC4 test lead adaptors
    2 x Sunclix test lead adaptors (Excludes USA)
    1 x Red and Black Test leads, with test probe with detachable alligator clips
    1 x Quick Start Guides
    1 x Support CD-Rom
    1 x PV150 UKAS Calibration Certificate
    1 x Solar Survey 200R Calibration Certificate

The kit includes MC4 cable leads for safe and easy direct connection to the solar modules, strings or the entire array. The built-in memory of the PV150 solar PV tester can store up to 200 complete test records; the USB connectivity feature enables to quickly download the readings to a PC. When used in conjunction with Seaward’s SolarCert Elements software program (supplied separately) you will be able to create professional test reports for your customers.
