    Seaward PV100 Solar Test Kit

The world's first all-inclusive solar PV specific installation electrical safety testing kit from Seaward.

In order to fulfil the requirements of the Microgeneration Certification Scheme, a number of electrical tests must be performed on a Solar PV Installation. The required tests are now defined in detail in a recently published standard, IEC 62446, and include earth continuity between any exposed metal parts and the protective earth in the building, the insulation resistance between the DC conductors and exposed metal parts, the open circuit voltage of each PV string, short circuit current of each string and an operational test.

Seaward's Solar Installation PV100 Test Kit includes all of the tools needed to fulfill the electrical test requirements of MCS and IEC 62446, including a world first Solar Installation PV100 handheld multifunction tester.
