Solmetric PVA-600 PV Analyzer

Complete Verification Solution
The Solmetric PV Analyzer is a complete electrical test solution for verifying photovoltaic array performance. For each string, the analyzer measures current and power as a function of voltage. Measured results are compared to the performance predicted by advanced built-in models.

That means:
• Confidence in DC performance at startup
• Smarter troubleshooting
• Faster installation and repairs
• Detailed history of array performance
