Solmetric has added the PVA-1000S to its PV Analyzer I-V line of curve tracers for use in commissioning, auditing, troubleshooting, and operations and maintenance applications. The PVA-1000S measures up to 1000 V strings.
The company says the combination of the new PV Analyzer I-V unit and new SolSensor wireless PV reference sensor offers improved accuracy and a wireless sensor range to 300 feet. In addition, the curve tracer functions in environments with ambient temperatures exceeding 100 degrees F.
New features include a temperature- and incident-angle-corrected irradiance sensor for delivering readings in lower light conditions, a"SmartTemp," feature that blends module backside temperature with effective cell temperature, and a database of more than 12,000 modules.
