Insulation and Continuity Tester

With the PVMobile Android App you can:

    • View I-V and power curves in full color and high definition detail
    • Pinch and zoom to observe deviations from a normal curve, and to see Mpp region in more detail
    • Select points on the curve to read actual voltage and current
    • Transfer data back to the office from a remote location
    • View I-V curves and measurement data clearly, even in direct sunlight
    • Avoid the need to take a laptop on-site
    • Transfer measurement data to the PVMobile App instantly by touching your
    • NFC-enabled Android device against the PV210
