WALK IN SOLAR PANEL TEST CHAMBER

For testing various size Walk in Solar Panel Test Chamber WIEBER designs and manufactures Walk in Solar Photovoltaic Testing Chamber. The test are to be performed according to various standards of ASTM, IEC, UC etc. Solar panels need to pass environmental tests as per IEC and other standards requirements to prove their long term performance and resistance to temperature and humidity extremes.

WEIBER can work with you to decide which equipment has the needed size and features to suit your applications. Factors such as desired equipment, testing methodology, floor space and budget will affect the final selection. This chamber also known as walk in pv module test chamber.

This chamber allows three types of tests to be performed on solar modules:

  • High and Low Temperature Tests
