Photovoltaic module tester
Test™ Station 4600
Programmable High Voltage Tester for Photovoltaic Modules
The manual High Voltage Test™ Station 4600 provides a protected, convenient platform for performing high voltage testing on solar photovoltaic modules up to 140 cm x 210 cm. The station consists of a rugged steel frame supporting an electrically non-conductive table top that serves as the module test surface. A dielectric analyzer is used for testing the dielectric strength of insulating materials and measuring the amount of leakage current from a test specimen at a selected high voltage. The Hi-Pot Tester System ("Analyzer") can be used for photovoltaic module safety testing to identify modules with the potential for leaking hazardous electrical currents when modules are installed in the field.
The "Analyzer" is a microprocessor controlled dielectric and ground continuity tester designed for ease of use and operator safety. The instrument provides the capability to meet the Hi-Pot Test requirements of UL, IEC, CSA, VDE, TÜV and other safety agencies and European Norms including the Low Voltage Directive 73/23/EEC. The "Analyzer" is versatile enough to meet a wide range of testing applications.
