Seaward Solar PV150+ Installation Tester

The Seaward Solar PV150+ Installation Tester is an upgraded PV installation tester from Seawards popular PV150 model which enables the electrical safety and performance of solar PV installations. . The PV150+ is ideal for testing PV modules which factor in recent technology advances, including improved capacitance induced in-rush protection by up to a factor of 300% and combines PV commissioning test that are required by IEC 62446 standards. In addition the Seaward PV150+ Solar Tester has an onboard memory capable of storing up to 200 test records which can be downloaded to a PC via USB and new Solarlink connectivity allowing wireless capture of irradiance & temperature data from the Seaward Solar Survey 200R.

  • Fulfills MCS and IEC 62446 testing requirements
  • Onboard memory capacity for up to 200 test records and USB download to a PC
  • Seaward Solarlink allows wireless connection and data acquisition from a Survey 200R
  • Connects directly to the PV array for safe testing

With single key operation for testing and measurement, users are also able to use the PV150+ to safely test energised PV arrays.

The Seaward PV150+ provides users with a number of key features such as Ground (earth) continuity measurements with test lead null for long test-leads. PV string open circuit voltage measurements can be taken up to 1000V DC with polarity indication. PV150+ allows for PV array insulation test at 250/500/1000V and can test individual PV modules or strings.

The Solar PV150+ Test Kit allows earth continuity, insulation resistance, open circuit voltage, short circuit current and operational testing to be performed on a PV system and is supplied with MC4 fused test leads for direct connection with solar PV strings, modules and arrays for safer testing.

When used in tandem with additional Seaward SolarCert Elements software, the 200 result memory of the PV150+ can be quickly downloaded and imported into professional test certificates and reports. 

Seaward Solarlink allows the Solar PV 150+ Installation Tester to connect wirelessly with a Solar Survey 200R and record realtime solar irradiance, ambient temperature and PV module temperature data. This added features means that users can simultaneously take all the measurements required by MCS and BS EN 62446 standards.

Seaward 388A932 is the part number for this PV150+ Solar Panel Tester.
