Weiss WK 3100 Test Chamber

PV Module Test Chambers

Our range of test chambers for PV modules are designed for testing photovoltaic (PV) modules in accordance with IEC 61215 and IEC 61646. A comprehensive range of chamber volumes are available from 2000 to 15000.

We also provide also the most suitable test unit for temperature shock cycling tests, humidity freezing tests and damp heat tests.

Additional chamber options are available dependent upon user requirements including S!MPATI programming and logging software, temperature measurement on specimen, additional entry ports and special voltages.
