PC Software BENNING SOLAR Manager

We also recommend using the optional PC software BENNING SOLAR Manager. The PC software used with the BENNING PV 2 allows the creation of test reports as well as documentation in compliance with the standards EN 62446 and EN 61829. The measured I-V characteristics and power characteristics of the BENNING PV 2 can be converted to standard test conditions (STC) and can be compared with the manufacturer’s nominal specifications via an integrated PV module database.
