SolarBOS String Checker, an original equipment manufacturer for the solar energy industry, says its String Checker installation tool is now available to the North American market.
The String Checker gives system installers a way to check both the open-circuit voltage and short-circuit current with a purpose-built multi-meter that clips into a SolarBOS combiner box. Installers no longer have to wait until system commissioning to check all the string currents; they can be measured at any time during construction, the company explains.
String Checkers are rated for up to 600 V DC and 20 DC and are built within a rugged, weatherproof case. Test leads, battery and battery charger are included.
