An instructional film from Seaward Solar shows how a new range of multi-function irradiance meters enables installers to carry out comprehensive surveys of solarPV sites and test installations quickly and easily. These meters combine irradiance measurement with a host of other features.
These multi-function units incorporate a digital compass, digital tilt meter and a dual-channel precision thermometer. These features help identify the location where maximum solar power can be collected and accurately measure irradiance, roof pitch, orientation and the temperature of ambient air and the solarPV module.
Readings can be captured for downloading to a PC.
