Model:PV-3

Description

The PV-3 data logger is used by installers, householders, renewable energy companies to check PV (photo voltaic) installations. It can record solar irradiation up to 1,500W/m2 (watts per square metre), DC Voltage and DC Current produced by the panel, allowing you to assess the performance of a solar energy installation. The logger will record up to 300 days using the included PSU (power supply unit), data can be downloaded to the free software, Electrosoft and analysed.

The advantage of the Electrocorder products over most others is that our data loggers constantly sample information (recording the Min, Max and Average)over the set period, many other products only take 'snap shots' of what isgoing on and can miss 99.9% of the data that is critical to your analysis.

Kit includes data logger, fused voltage input leads, DC current probe, pyranometer, USB lead, 12Vdc PSU, Electrosoft software and a carry case.

NOTE: Please confirm Current range version require: +/- 10A & +/- 100A or +/- 30A & +/- 300A. For IP65 Case, please see the option in the recommended products section below.
