FLIR’s expertise in thermal imaging (“IR”) cameras helps solar professionals to identify:
-Hot spots on PV modules
-Non-producing modules and strings
-Hot spots in balance-of-system wiring and equipment
Solmetric recommends the FLIR i7 and the FLIR E40 models for solar applications. A complete PV system commissioning, verification, and troubleshooting tool kit should include an IR camera alongside an I-V curve tracer, shade measurement tool, and insulation resistance tester.
