PV Modules Lab Testing
Solar Photovoltaic (PV) energy systems are leading the market when talking about renewable energy sources. In OCA Group we are proud of being part of this industry by providing quality tailor-made testing solutions for manufacturers and service providers for the PV solar industry.
We have built an international network of expertise and experience to guide our clients in this new, complex and rapidly growing sector through every step of the testing and certification process.
OCA Group knows better than anyone that quality is a very demanding sector, and high-quality PV modules are subject to a big number of strict requirements, from delivering the guaranteed rated power reliably to withstanding an extremely range of environmental conditions.
We are able to offer a wide range of quality control testing services conducted according to national and international standards ensuring quality and reliability to solar systems. Our objective is to guarantee the system’s high yield over the long term by providing safety and durability to solar PV modules through our state-of-the-art testing solutions.
Through our international network of partners and laboratories, we can provide Electrical Safety Testing and certification for PV modules to the requirements of UL 1703, UL 1741, ULC/ORD-C1703-1, CSA22.2 No 107.1 and many other PV standards including IEC 61215, IEC 61646, IEC 61730-1 and IEC 61730-2.
Testing and certification services can be performed during any phase of the project life-cycle:
- Purchasing/Manufacturing Phase
- Construction & Commissioning Phase
- In-Service Phase
- End-Life of the Installation
