Testing of solar parks, power plants and large installations with 1500 V technology

Tester for Photovoltaic Systems BENNING PV 3

Tester for photovoltaic systems BENNING PV 3
Tester for photovoltaic systems BENNING PV 3
  • open-circuit voltage at the PV module, PV string and PV field with up to 1500 V DC
  • powerful short-circuit current measurement of PV strings connected in parallel up to 40 A
  • wireless connection to insolation and temperature measuring instrument BENNING SUN 2
  • memory of measured values for 999 PV string tests

Within the framework of commissioning tests and periodic inspection of grid-connected photovoltaic systems in compliance with DIN EN 62446 (VDE 0126-23), polarity tests as well as open-circuit voltage and short-circuit current measurements of PV strings connected in parallel can be carried out, stored and documented safely and efficiently up to 1500 V/40 A.

With radio connection to the optional BENNING SUN 2 (item no. 050420), the existing radiation conditions (W/m²) as well as the PV module temperature and ambient temperature (°C) are automatically stored for each test procedure.

Features

  • automatic test procedure (+/-, Vo/c, Is/c, W/m2, °C) with reverse polarity protection
  • powerful short-circuit current measurement, reserve is up to 4 x larger than for conventional PV testers with 10 A limitation
  • reduced testing times and effort for disassembly, as the individual PV strings no longer have to be separated and tested one after the other
  • reduces the risk of failure due to overload during testing of PV strings of unknown power
  • integrated memory of measured values for 999 PV string/ PV fields
  • real-time clock with date/time stamp per measurement
  • USB interface and download software (CSV format)
  • large LC display with illumination
  • optimum transport and storage protection (IP 64)

Measuring functions

  • polarity test of the PV generator/ PV cabling
  • open-circuit voltage measurement for modern 1500 V DC systems
  • short-circuit current measurement at PV strings up to 40 A DC
  • insolation measurement (W/m2) and PV module temperature and ambient temperature (°C) by means of BENNING SUN 2 (optional, item no. 050420)

BENNING SOLAR Datalogger (download software)

  • download of measured values from the BENNING PV 3 in CSV format
  • further processing of measured values possible in MS Excel®
  • The latest version is available for free download on this product page (see “Further Information” -> “Software”)

Scope of delivery

PV tester in robust protective case (IP 64), set of PV measuring leads (MC4), set of measuring leads with probe tip and alligator clips, charger with 3 pieces 3.7 V lithium-ion batteries and calibration certificate.

Perfectly complemented by

We recommend the following optional accessories:

  • Insolation and temperature measuring instrument BENNING SUN 2 (050420)
    The BENNING PV 2 is able to receive the measured values (insolation, PV module / ambient temperature) of the insolation and temperature measuring instrument BENNING SUN 2 via radio connection. The measured values are required for the measurement of an I-V characteristic. For this purpose, the BENNING PV 3 has to be coupled with the BENNING SUN 2 once.
  • temperature sensor with suction cup for BENNING SUN 2 for attachment to the rear of the PV module (050424).
  • PV module holder for BENNING SUN 2 for safe attachment to the PV module (050425)
  • test badges „next test“, 300 pieces (756212)
