"Multifunctional power analysis tool for PV testing, with full clamp-on multimeter capabilities"

  • Description

    Seaward Solar Power Meter 396A961

    Measuring AC and DC circuit power as well as offering true RMS voltage and current readings, the new Seaward Solar Power Clamp is the ideal tool for any PV installer or technician interested in diagnostic tests or power analysis.

    Negating the need for multiple instruments, this multifunctional analysis tool simplifies and speeds up efficiency measurements. This multifunction PV power clamp meter also provides readings for resistance and continuity, diode checks, capacitance, alongside Power Factor measurement, harmonic analysis up to the 25th harmonic for inverter performance analysis and phase rotation indication.

    Supplied with MC4 test leads, carrying case and two-year warranty, this robust photovoltaic clampmeter offers full clamp-on multimeter capabilities and comes with a range of useful features, including active backlight and inbuilt cable illuminating torch, perfect for those dark or confined spaces.
