    Excludes £10 carriage charge each way (collection optional)

    The Seaward Solar Utility Pro 1500V 40A PV String Checker is a powerful instrument that is capable of testing parallel wire strings up to 1500V / 40A. Suitable for modern PV installations, there is no need to separate the different wire strings, a time-consuming task often required when using other instruments with lower limits. It is able to measure open circuit voltages between 5V DC and 1500V DC with a precision of 0.1V and an accuracy of ±(0.5% + 2 digits). This unit also features a short circuit current measurement range of 0.5A DC to 40A with an accuracy of ±(1% + 2 digits) and a resolution of 0.01A. When used in conjunction with the supplied Seaward Solar Survey 200R Irradiance Meter, the checker can also record irradiance, module, and ambient temperature readings.
