A comprehensive solution for measuring and documenting physical and electrical parameters associated with solar PV installations, the Chauvin Arnoux FTV100 is an extremely useful tool in multiple solar installation applications.

Coming encased in its own protective carrying case, the Chauvin Arnoux is protected at all times from damage and is easy to port around from test to test thanks to the briefcase-shaped casing. The inside of the unit contains an easy-to-use interface, multiple connectors for use during PV installation and a large LCD screen that relays testing information.

The unit can be used to carry out electrical power surveys, calculation of solar panel efficiency and calculations of inverter efficiency. It also measures multiple parameters, including ambient temperature, solar irradiance, DC and AC voltage and AC and DC current.  It also includes built in memory which can be used to store test data after a test is carried out.
