Electronic Load Method I-V Curve Tracer MP-165 is a next generation I-V curve tracer which is capable of measuring a wide range of PV device characteristics from small to big capacity. It is capable of taking samplings of voltage, current, and solar irradiance at the same time; also it is simple to take measurements with an artificial light source (sequential illumination). Connecting the MP-165 to a computer by using an RS-232C connector, allows for the measured data to be graphically displayed.

The MP-165 I-V tracer is the optimum solution for testing individual solar cell or module characteristics in combination with a solar simulator or natural sunlight. It can be found in factory quality control applications or long-term performance assessment studies of modules exposed to natural conditions outdoors. The cell or module performance characteristics are determined by changing the electrical load during the I-V sweep. The radiant energy on the module energy can be measured simultaneously with the voltage and current measurements in order to calculate to Standard Test Conditions (STC) or equivalent standards.
