Utilizing the results from a NEDO project, System JD Co., Ltd., has developed a portable photovoltaic array tester for use with solar panels called “SOKODES GF”.

In addition to conventional product functions, including detecting connection failures, which are the primary cause of solar panel malfunctions, and estimating the location of these failures, the newly developed tester can detect insulation failures and estimate the location. Furthermore, on January 21st, 2016, System JD Co., Ltd., submitted a Declaration of Conformity with CE marking requirements for the new product, which is necessary to begin sales in Europe.

The company will begin sales of the commercial version of the tester this spring both in Japan and abroad.
