Designed with the sole purpose to simplify its use, COMTEST, the local channel partner for Fluke, has introduced its new IRR1-SOL Irradiance Meter. This nifty handheld device makes light work of installation, commissioning and troubleshooting – as it enables the measurement of the irradiance, temperature, inclination and direction of the photovoltaic or solar arrays all in a single device.
Featuring a rugged, compact design, a protective carrying case and an easy-to-read, high-contrast LCD screen, which is visible even when used in direct sunlight, the IRR1-SOL can literally go anywhere.
Its simple user interface, instantaneous solar irradiation measurements and built-in temperature sensor make it easy to meet the IEC 62446-1 requirements for testing, documenting and maintaining photovoltaic systems. Additionally, the integrated compass and inclination sensor allow users to measure and document the roof and site orientation, pitch and panel tilt while surveying, installing or adjusting an installation.
It also features an impressive list of functionalities including:
• Irradiance measurement: up to 1 400W/m².
• Temperature measurement: measures the ambient and panel temperature.
• Integrated compass: Measures and documents roof or site orientation.
• Inclination sensor: Measures panel tilt when surveying, installing or adjusting the installation.
• Carry it everywhere: a practical shoulder-strapped case allows for easy carrying.
Whether working on a roof-mounted system or on a large field installation, the IRR1-SOL is the single-handed solution that every solar installer and technician need in their tool bags.
