Megger has released its PVM210 handheld irradiance meter that aids in locating the most appropriate site to place solar panels.
Designed with both the solar detector and meter inside the unit, the PVM210 can be held with just one hand while an installer is working on a sloping roof or atop a ladder. The PVM210 includes an LCD with a measurement range up to 1,999 W/mÂ². The unit's data hold feature allows the user to freeze the display to read measurements.Â
Once solar panel installation is complete, Megger's new irradiance meter can verify the stated short circuit current in conjunction with a compatible multimeter or clampmeter.
The PVM210 features a universal camera thread to allow accurate positioning and measurements, and an automatic on/off to prolong battery life. A calibration certificate is included with each device.
