New Solmetric 1000V I-V Curve Tracer Able to Take the Heat

Solmetric's new I-V curve tracer delivers the highest accuracy and measurement throughput even in hot environments where other curve tracers shut down.

Solmet

ric has introduced a major advance in its line of PV Analyzer I-V curve tracers for use in commissioning, auditing, O&M, and troubleshooting. The PVA-1000S extends the product line to measure up to 1000V strings. The combination of the new PV Analyzer I-V unit and new SolSensor wireless PV reference sensor improves accuracy to +/-0.5% and wireless sensor range to 300ft. The high throughput PV Analyzer can commission 1 MW in less than 2 hours--even in hot environments where other curve tracers shut down. New features also include a temperature and incident angle corrected irradiance sensor delivering accurate readings in lower light conditions, SmartTemp blending module backside temperature with Effective Cell Temperature for the best cell temperature measurements, and a database of more than 12,000 modules. CEO, Willard MacDonald says, "We are pleased to offer the highest accuracy and most advanced features in a rugged curve tracer that's really able to take the heat."

Easy monitoring with weather sensors from Lufft

Easy monitoring with weather sensors from Lufft

Professional weather sensors form the heart of large solar plants supporting their operation and performance. Lufft was the first manufacturer to combine several sensors in one housing, bringing the largest multiparameter weather sensor family with 19 members into being. Many of them are well-suited for solar site assessment and continuous monitoring. The most commonly used one is the WS600 delivering data on temperature, air pressure, wind, relative humidity and precipitation. Through its open protocol, it can easily be attached to radiation sensors e.g. from Kipp&Zonen. Other models have an integrated Silicon, Second Class or Secondary Standard radiation sensor.
