Our testing and certification services for solar technology

Photovoltaic components testing – TÜV Rheinland
We carry out a wide range of tests for your photovoltaic components according to national and international standards.

Proper operation of PV modules and other components like PV inverter depend upon appropriate PV component properties as well as safety and efficiency documentation. Our experts are able to provide a wide range of versatile testing and certification services from one source – our own global test labs. Proper testing laboratories, which can both simulate distribution grids and solar power facilities, are needed to measure efficiency and network properties to deliver surveys of various operating conditions. We test your products compliant to all common norms, guidelines and quality requirements.

In addition, our requirements such as 2 PfG 1940/12.11 and diverse UL standards designate the electrical, mechanical and construction requirements to which components must comply in order to guarantee sufficient safety against hazards such as electric shocks or burning over the long term. They also lay out specific material requirements for fireproofing and resistance against environmental stress like UV radiation.

Upon successful testing, a certificate and the right to use our globally recognized test mark can be awarded.
