The PVA-1500 uses WiFi to communicate to your tablet or laptop. This eliminates the USB dongle required for the PVA-1000S. We are now shipping the "V3" version of the PVA-1500. This third generation of the PVA-1500 product line has improved battery life compared to the V2 version.
For each string, the PV Analyzer measures the I-V (current vs. voltage) and P-V (power vs. voltage) curves with a single button click. The measured results are compared to the expected performance, taking into account the irradiance and module cell temperature at the time of the I-V measurement. Irradiance, module temperature, and tilt are measured with the SolSensor. The I-V Unit communicates wirelessly to the Solsensor and to your Windows tablet or laptop (not included), enhancing safety and allowing freedom of movement during testing. Automated data analysis and reporting save you time.
The PV Analyzer is designed to work as hard as you do. High measurement throughput means it can measure 1 MW in less than 2 hours--even in hot environments where other curve tracers shut down. In an example PV system with 1300V Voc, 16 strings per combiner box, and 5 minutes to move to next combiner box, the PVA can make more than 800 measurements at 75°F ambient and 250 measurements at 113°F ambient. Furthermore, the incident-angle-corrected SolSensor is able to make accurate irradiance readings in lower light conditions extending your working window.
I-V curve testing is the preferred method for commissioning, O&M, and troubleshooting of PV arrays because it provides the most complete performance measurement possible. Populations of curves can be analyzed quickly for outliers and data can be archived as a baseline for future reference if performance questions arise.
|This rugged waterproof, dust-proof, and crush-proof Pelican® case has durable custom foam cutouts for the I-V unit, SolSensor, and accessories as well as a pocket for a laptop/tablet (up to 14" x 10"). Includes wheels and retractable handle for easy transportation. Also holds the field recharging kit, including the folding solar panel. more...|
|This field charging kit enables you to charge your I-V unit or SolSensor from solar or from an external battery pack for those extra-long days in the field. Kit includes a 28W folding solar panel, external battery pack capable of re-charging an IV unit or SolSensor twice, and charging cables. Solar panel or external battery pack can not be used during I-V measurements.more...|
