Solar Panel Tester Greentest FTV 100
Accounting of electrical output by solar panel tester Greentest FTV 100 / 
Efficiency calculation for solar panel and inverter

Due to an increasing spread of PV systems, all professionals in that field need this simple, reliable and accurate solar panel tester, which applies to constructors of PV systems as well as to maintenance technicians and inspection companies. The user of PV systems want to feed in solar power into the network against payment and depending on the efficiency if the facility, those PV systems pay off sooner or later. Every PV system has a significant efficiency factor. That reference value is stated in the technical specifications and it should be checked regularly in order to monitor whether or not the system works correctly. In case this value is not reached by the PV system, a fault in the system is indicated. By means of the solar panel tester FTV 100 not only the efficiency of the solar panel can be checked but also the efficiency of the inverter. Big advantage: With the solar panel tester Greentest FTV 100 those measurements can be performed at 1, 2 or 3 lines of parallel connected panels simultaneously. The solar panel tester Greentest FTV 100 is an eased operatable device. For safety reasons the solar panel has to be disconnected first. Afterwards the operator determines the characteristics of the inverter on the type plate. Then the sensors for the physical parameters are preferably connected: temperature sensor for panel and for the surrounding temperature as well as the solarization sensor. At the end the current probe and the respective voltage inputs have to be connected. Before the actual measurement process the user configures the solar panel tester and feeds-in the manufacturers instruction about the panel. Those data  serve as reference values in order to determine and control the efficiency of the solar panel. All measurements are performed simultaneously: voltage, flows, calculation of efficiency, temperature gauging etc. Depending on the arrangement of the solar panel 1 or 3 current probes are necessary. Therefore there are two pre-configured versions of the solar panel tester Greentest FTV 100: For measurement on larger dimensioned systems the solar panel tester Greentest FTV 100 is equipped optionally with a remote measuring unit that records the data on-site, i.e. at the rooftop und then sends those data via the max. 100 m distant wireless Bluetooth or via a 15 m long data cable with a 9-pin RS232 connection plug to the tester in real time. If there are any questions about this Solar Panel Tester Greentest FTV 100, please have a look at the technical specification below or call: UK customers +44(0) 23 809 870 30 / US customers +1-410-387-7703. Our technicians and engineers will gladly advise you in all solar testers and all products in the field of measuring instruments, regulation and control and scales
