Irradiance meters in the spotlight

Seaward Solar has launched an instructional video on its website showing how its new range of irradiance meters enable PV installers to test sites more quickly and easily.

The company says the Solar Survey 100 and 200R instruments are ideal for both PV and solar thermal testing and contain new functions – a digital compass, digital tilt meter and a dual channel precision thermometer.

The 200R also encompasses a large internal memory and USB interface for downloading results to a PC. The 200R has wireless capability to connect with the Seaward Solar PV150 electrical installation tester. This enables real-time irradiance to be displayed and measured at the same time as testing is being undertaken.
