Testing testing

Seaward has launched its latest product – the Seaward Solar Power Clamp. It measures DC and AC circuit power in addition to RMS voltage and current, harmonic distortion, power factor, resistance and continuity, diode check and capacitance.

The company says that due to the 25 year lifetime of PV systems and the periodic inspection which is required, the Solar Power Clamp is ideal for this role.

The Power Clamp can be used for maintenance and troubleshooting on the PV system after commissioning and to ensure that the inverter and other system components are working properly. The device also has full clamp on multimeter functions and is suitable for use on systems up to 600A AC or DC current and 1000V. The new unit is supplied with test leads and probes and comes in an all-inclusive test kit carrying case.
