Call for Price

The MegaPulse 1.2x50-16PF PV is specifically designed to perform the Inpulse Voltage Test on PV Panels in accordance with IEC 61730-2 Issue 2, Test MST 14. The output is in accordance with the published waveform from 800-16000V peak (open circuit).

IEC 61730-2 Issue 2 stipulates that an in-tolerance 1.2x50mSec waveform be delivered to the PV Panel during testing.  The MegaPulse 1.2x50-16PF PV is provided with a single output tap and is in compliance with waveform specification of rise time (1.2uSec rise time -10%=50%; Trise=1.67(T90%-T30%)) for panels with capacitance between 10nF and 180nF for voltages 800-16kV.

Can be controlled via 32 bit Windows computer with TestMinder option.
