Datasheet

 

The Megger PVM210 provides the solar / photovoltaic engineer a compact, pocket size instrument that is easy to use.
 

Single handed operation is possible because the solar detector and meter being housed in one neat unit. This feature is ideal when using the instrument on a sloping roof or at the top of a ladder.
 

With the easy to read display and measurement hold feature the meter gives fast, accurate readings of solar power for initially choosing optimum position for the photovoltaic panel. In addition the meter can provide the vital measurement for the calculation of short circuit current in conjunction with a suitable ammeter to verify the stated short circuit current provided by the manufacturer of the panel.
 

Features:

  • Optimal incident angle and positioning of solar panels
  • Measurement of solar power for panel short circuit calculation
  • 3¾ digit LCD display with 1999 W/m² range
  • Single handed use
  • Mini pocket size
  • Standard camera mount fixing for accurate placement
