Kapton tape is required for cable strain relief. The tape is also used to fasten the CS240 to the back of a solar panel when the temperature may exceed 70°C.

Descripción técnica

The CS240 consists of a PT-1000 class A PRT encased in an aluminum disk. The disk protects the PRT, particularly during installation when pulled through conduit, and promotes heat transfer from the surface. An adhesive tab on the disk fastens the CS240 to the measurement surface. If the temperature may exceed 70°C, Kapton tape is also required to secure the probe.

The CS240 provides PV stakeholders with highly accurate back-of-module temperature, even at long cable lengths, for use in power performance modeling and simulation of solar energy applications. Back-of-module temperature is critical for any evaluation of effective irradiance and power conversion.
