PV (Photovoltaic) installation refers to the process of installing solar panels on roofs, walls or on the ground within specially established solar farms. Solar panels are designed specifically to convert the energy from sunlight into electricity using semi-conductor components that take advantage of the photovoltaic effect. One of the key processes during the installation of these systems is the wiring and connection of the panels to ensure the installation is safe and efficiently converting light into electricity, this is where the use of a PV installation meter comes in.
Calibrationhouse as part of the Seaward Group benefits from over a decade of experience in the design, manufacture, and calibration of PV installation meters for both 1000v and larger more modern 1500v systems. PV installation meters essentially combine the functions of traditional solar system test tools like multimeters, clamp meters and insulation resistance meters into one instrument meaning that testing is quicker and has a lot more added functionality.
Many more modern PV installation meters, such as the Seaward PV200 are used to test and diagnose problems within solar installations, therefore providing essential information to technicians about in-situ performance and maintenance requirements. Calibrationhouse has acquired many years of experience in performance of these instruments, and we recommend they are calibrated at least once per year.
Our PV installation meter calibration service is available onsite at customer premises or within our Durham based laboratory, for full solar installation kits please contact us to discuss.
