Product Overview
thin yellow rule
<empty>
The FMT instrument has been designed to have the highest possible accuracy for measuring high-efficiency silicon solar modules. This is accomplished using a patented multiflash technology.
<empty>
The standard analysis includes the commonly reported parameters for module testers, but is supplemented with the Suns-Voc analysis that precisely indicates the source of power loss due to shunt and series resistance effects.
<empty>
Over 1 GW of product has been tested to date using the FMT instrument. It is also ideal for R&D.
