The Solmetric PVA-1000S I-V Curve Tracer is a 1000 volt I-V curve tracer with built-in PV performance modeling and advanced wireless irradiance, temperature and tilt sensing. The Solmetric PVA-1000S provides unprecedented measurement throughput and accuracy and delivers deep insight into the performance of your arrays.

For each string, the PVA-1000S measures the I-V (current vs. voltage) and P-V (power vs. voltage) curves with a single button click. The measured results are compared to the expected performance, taking into account the irradiance and module cell temperature at the time of the I-V measurement. The Solmetric PVA-1000S communicates wirelessly to your Windows tablet or laptop, enhancing safety and allowing freedom of movement during testing. Automated data analysis and reporting save you time.

High measurement throughput means it can measure 1 MW in less than 2 hours--even in hot environments where other curve tracers shut down. The rugged enclosure is moisture and dust resistant and the incident angle corrected SolSensor is able to make accurate irradiance readings in lower light conditions extending your working window.

I-V curve testing is the preferred method for commissioning, O&M, and troubleshooting of PV arrays because it provides the most complete performance measurement possible. Populations of curves can be analyzed quickly for outliers and data can be archived as a baseline for future reference if performance questions arise.
