The SSIVT is an electrical current-voltage measurement system used to characterize photovoltaic cell performance. This current-voltage tester works by sampling various currents versus specific voltage combinations of the photovoltaic cell with a variable impedance load.
This IV measurement system has a separate terminal interface for voltage and current measurements, and the number of sample points can be selected between 10 and 100. Each IV curve dataset is saved as a separate ASCII text file. This system includes Sciencetech’s SciRunIV software for Windows-based control. The system interfaces to PC via a RS232 port and requires a real port; USB to RS232 converters are not sufficient.
Please note that this system includes a SSIVT-REF detector. The reference detector is an integral part of this product and is used to synchronize the peak of each flash pulse with IV measurements of the device under test.
