The Seaward PV150 Solar Installation Tester allows electrical safety and performance verification of photovoltaic installations in a safe and easy-to-use device.
Part Number: 388A915
> Save time using a number of different measuring tools in the field with this fast and comprehensive solar PV tester.
> The PV150 features a safe test connection meaning you can safely test energised arrays.
> The unit can also wirelessly capture and record real time irradiance, ambient temperature and PV module temperature measurements from the Solar Survey 200R.
> 200 datasets can be stored on the PV150 and downloaded to the SolarCert software so you can create professional reports for your customers.
When you choose a Seaward tester you don't just get our tester; you also get access to our range of support materials to help you get the most from your new instrument.
We have created a number of support FAQs for you should you need any guidance when carrying out a particular test with your PV150 tester.
