Seaward Solar has introduced a new version of its Solarlink Test Kit, which the company says enables contractors to meet international electrical commissioning and PV system safety requirements.
The new Solarlink Test Kit includes all the necessary test equipment and data-logging capabilities needed to perform pre-installation site surveys and measure the electrical safety and performance of PV systems in line with BS EN 62446. The kit combines the comprehensive electrical commissioning test capabilities of the new PV150 solar installation handheld tester with the advanced Solar Survey 200R multifunction PV survey meter.
Wireless Solarlink connectivity between the two instruments enables real-time irradiance to be displayed and measured at the same time that electrical testing is being undertaken. This means that irradiance, module and ambient temperature can be recorded in real time within the PV150 as the electrical tests are conducted, the company explains.
Once testing is completed, the USB download of time- and date-stamped test results, irradiance and temperature measurements provides full traceability, as well as speeds up the completion of PV system documentation and customer handover packs, Seaward Solar adds.
