Megger PVK330 Photovoltaic Kit with DC Clamp Meter
When installing, commissioning and testing a photovoltaic installation additional instrumentation is required to accompany the usual electrician’s test equipment such as a multifunction tester. The Megger PVK330 photovoltaic kit offers this additional instrumentation in the form of a PVM210 irradiance meter, DCM340 600 A AC / DC clamp meter and a kit of specialist solar test leads. To provide easy storage of the PV kit a zipped pouch is also included. The PVK330 kit offers the solar / photovoltaic engineer a clamp meter option of verifying, with the PVM210 irradiance meter, the stated short circuit current as provided by the manufacturer of the solar panel as required by published standards. In addition, this clamp meter offers the option of testing the current within each ‘string’ on a larger solar array without disconnection of cables.

- Camera mount fixing for accurate placement
Megger DCM340 600 A AC / DC Clamp Meter
The DCM340 clamp meter features 600 V AC / DC and 600 A AC / DC ranges. Additional functions include resistance and frequency. A hold feature to enable easy measurements is also included. The additional functions would also prove to be of use in other sections of the photovoltaic installation. Silicon test leads with probes and a protective storage pouch are provided with each clamp.
- AC / DC current range
- Frequency counter
- Analogue bar graph
- Back light
- Large jaws
- Auto off to conserve batteries
PVK320 Specialist PV Test Leads
In addition to the silicon multimeter test leads supplied with the AVO410, two pairs of specialist solar test leads are included in the PVK320.
The first pair of leads comprise of 1.3 metre test leads terminated at each end with standard 4 mm plugs, while the other ends are terminated with the typical MC4 type solar panel connector. Where panels are fitted that utilise MC3 connectors, a pair of MC3 to MC4 0.2 metre adapter leads is supplied for convenience.
