IN-SITU IV CURVE TRACING FOR REAL WORLD INSIGHT ON SOLAR MODULES

WHO WE SERVE

RESEARCHERS
  • The only IV Curve Tracer capable of continuous outdoor testing of in-situ PV modules in live arrays. 

  • Understand real-world environmental impacts of solar modules.

INSTALLERS AND MAINTENANCE TEAMS
  • Know more than a panel isn't working, know WHY.

  • Determine if modules are living up to manufacturers' claims for power output and degradation.

  • Understand the impact of soiling, weather, and cleaning. 

  • Identify power mismatch within a string. 

  • All this with zero down time.

EDUCATORS
  • Full IV curves deliver the most in depth information on the performance of PV modules, such as impacts of soiling, temperature, environmental conditions, consistency across panels, and degradation over time.
