Chroma Systems Solutions Inc., the North American business unit of Chroma ATE, has released the Solar Application Soft Panel. This software tool utilizes Chroma's 63600 series DC electronic loads to generate PV module I-V curves and track their maximum power point.
Through an intuitive graphical user interface, the Soft Panel allows users to record and analyze a module's electrical characteristics and output behavior without having to configure any hardware, the company says. Combined with the 63600 loads, the product provides a complete test and diagnostics solution for production, quality lab or field installation environments.
Analyzing module I-V data at various stages of the PV process can aid in ensuring product reliability. This software provides and reports on information from early signs of degradation that may develop over the course of the PV module's life, Chroma says.
