Fluke SMFT-1000 Solar PV Multifunction Tester and I-V Curve Tracer - PRO Kit

The Fluke SMFT-1000 Solar PV Multifunction Tester and I-V Curve Tracer - PRO Kit includes the Fluke SMFT-1000 Solar PV Multifunction Tester, Fluke TruTest™ Data Management and Reporting Software and Fluke PVLEAD3 MC4 Solar Clamp Test Lead Set.

Fluke SMFT-1000 Solar PV Multifunction Tester and I-V Curve Tracer

The Fluke SMFT-1000 Solar PV Multifunction Tester and I-V Curve Tracer is targeted at PV professionals for the installation, commission and maintenance of PV systems in both commercial and Industrial industries that operate at 1000V DC or below. The SMFT-1000 offers full sequence testing to IEC 62446-1 Category 1 standards and System performance testing to IEC 62446-1 category 2 standards. For category 1 testing, protective resistance RLO, Voltage on an open circuit including polarity VOC, short circuit current ISC and insulation resistance RINS. For category 2 testing the SMFT-1000 can test irradiance, temperature, tilt and cardinal direction.

The SMFT-1000's colour screen provides an easy walk through of tests thanks to the on screen instructions. The Auto test mode allows for automatic sequence testing in a variety of combinations such as, with or without insulation tests, IEC 62446-1 testing for category 1 and 2 and IEC 624460-1 testing for protection class I and class III.

Safety rated to CAT III 1000V DC and CAT III 700V AC, the SMFT-1000 also uses Flukes 'Keep the leads' system removing the need for the operation to change the configuration of test leads when conducting different tests. Using the same test leads reduces the set up time and reduces errors when testing PV systems.

Fluke IRR2-BT Irradiance Meter

The Fluke SMFT-1000 tester Kit includes a Fluke IRR2-BT irradiance meter allowing operators to record precise I-V curve measurements, real time irradiance and temperature, when the SMFT-1000 tester and IRR2-BT are used together. The IRR2-BT can record data for up to 17 hours even if the wirelessing connectivity is broken. \the recordings can be uploaded at a later point should this happen. The IRR-2 BT has a measurement range of 50 to 1400 W/m² and a temperature range of -30°C to 100°C. The IRR2-BT allows users to make instant measurements to determine the watts per square meter solar irradiation, required by IEC 62446-1 standard. The IRR2-BT also includes a mounting bracket for accurate irradiance and temperature readings at the panel.

Visual Inspection

To meet PV systems IEC regulations for visual inspections, the Fluke SMFT-1000 features a setting that can record observations to the internal memory. These observations can be later downloaded to the Fluke Trutest™ software and included into any report generated.

Fluke TruTest™ Data Management and Reporting Software advanced licence

The Fluke SMFT-1000 Solar PV Multifunction Tester and I-V Curve Tracer - PRO Kit includes one Fluke TruTest™ Data Management and Reporting Software advanced licence for the Fluke SMFT-1000 Solar PV Multifunction Tester. The softare  allows for data to be easily exported to an external device directly from the tester for further analysis and data storage without having a computer in the field. Pervious measurements can be compared and analysed against new recordings quickly and easily, allowing comprehensive client reports to be generated. Printable test certificates and customised reports can be produced with company logos and signatures using the software.

Live data can be viewed on screen using then Fluke dashboard interface. Pre-defined test codes or alternatively creating their own, users are able to ensure the correct data is collected. Tree Topology Flexible testing and reporting can be maintained through hierarchical tree topology, allowing large networks of clients, sites, locations and appliances to be easily managed.

Fluke Premium Care Plan

The Fluke Premium Care Plan aims to reduce the cost of ownership of the SMFT 1000 by eliminating the service and support charges, the Care Plan is available as a one year or three year option. The care plan includes one annual calibration per year at a Fluke Authorised Service Centre. If any accessories originally shipped with the SMFT 1000 are discovered to be defective, these will be replaced free of charge once a year under the care plan.

If the users SMFT 1000 is accidentally damaged, then repair of the tester will also be covered in the care plan, providing users with peace of mind should any unforeseen accidents happen.

With the Fluke Premium Care Plan the calibration, repair, collection and delivery of the SMFT 1000 will expedited reducing the downtime for the user.

Simply check the one year or three year service plan when placing your order, and your new analyser will be protected with Fluke premium care.
