Description

Solar power systems use the most widely available energy source in the world: sunlight. The installations already up and running have demonstrated the advantages of solar electricity generation: its reliability, its autonomy and its limited effects on the environment.

Solar power has a crucial role to play in achieving sustainable development. A building's roof or frontage can help to cover a substantial proportion of the building's energy consumption.

That's how solar energy is: non-polluting, economical, easily available, renewable and simple to transform. Thanks to rugged, reliable equipment (photovoltaic modules), it allows you to produce electricity which you can then use for your own needs or sell on to a power distributor. For personal or larger-scale production, in an area connected to the electrical grid or on an isolated site, solar electricity generation can prove an interesting option. It is decentralized, widely accessible and can be modulated. It can reduce your conventional electricity consumption or earn you additional revenue.

The FTV200 can be used to test either a single panel or a whole string of panels according to the IEC/EN60891 standard. This standard requires the use of an inclinometer. The FTV200 is an instrument for professionals involved in testing, maintaining and repairing solar panels and checking their efficiency. The analyser can be used on a solar-panel installation to determine whether its efficiency is satisfactory and detect any faulty cells.
 
In the range of instruments dedicated to the solar power industry, the new FTV200 I-V TRACER model can be used for thorough verification of all the voltage-current (I-V) specifications of a solar module or panel. It is capable of checking module strings on installations up to 1,000 V and 10 A. The data acquired are then processed and compared with reference curves (STCs) provided by the panel manufacturers. This comparison enables the panel(s) to be tested and declared either operational or needing replacement.

This highly-effective instrument is the ideal solution for routine maintenance and for detecting any faults on the solar power installation. Functional verification of solar panels is essential to ensure the quality and
safety of solar power installations (production system and solar panels).

The FTV200 solar panel tester is delivered with its own management software. On the one hand, this can be used to retrieve measurement results or customer data and to print reports. On the other hand, this software allows users to complete the library of solar panel references by manufacturer (power, voltage, etc.).
