The 110PV is a new surface-mount thermistor for measuring temperature on the back of a solar panel. Panel temperature is an important measurement in solar energy applications since the output of a solar panel is affected by its temperature. As the temperature of the solar panel increases, its output decreases.
Features of the 110PV include a wide measurement range of -40º to +120ºC, and the ability to make accurate measurements in environments of heavy electromagnetic interference. It is also easy to install—adhesive strips on the 110PV’s smooth face adhere to the back of the solar panel.
