We produce a line of photovoltaic (PV) test instruments. Our I-V Curve Tracers have become the standard used by module manufactures, research facilities, and electric utilities for measuring PV systems. Our tracers are sold by Daystar,Inc. as their DS-Series of I-V Tracers.


The RD-1200S Multi-Tracer is an integrated measurement system for testing multiple photovoltiac (PV) modules under natural or simulated sunlight. It is controlled with MTRACE software. MTRACE operates on an standard desktop PCs running WIndows. Some features of the Multi-Tracer are periodic I-V curve measurement of attached modules, rugged MOSFET load with individual over voltage and thermal cut-off protection on each load transistor, and pyranometer and ambient temperature data acquisition.

Battery Tracer

The DS-1200 Battery-Tracer efficiently tests installed, stand-alone, photovoltiac (PV) systems. This product takes current-voltage (I-V) curves of PV arrays up to 1000 Watts. The DS-1200 is a regulated programmable load that provides a constant-current discharge for 6 and 12 volt batteries.The DS-1200 is controlled by a PC compatible computer running Windows.


The DS-10 is a single unit, self-contained data acquisition system. It can be installed at a remote site and programmed to collect, process, and store data. It is a portable Data Acquisition System for Photovoltiac systems. The DS-10 is very durable, and is designed for operation in harsh environments at temperatures ranging from -20 C to +50 C.
