Draft Scope/Description:


CSA C22.2 No. 61730 specifies and describes the fundamental construction requirements for photovoltaic (PV) modules in order to provide safe electrical and mechanical operation. Specific topics are provided to assess the prevention of electrical shock, fire hazards, and personal injury due to mechanical and environmental stresses

CSA C22.2 No. 61730-2 defines the requirements for testing. The objective of this standard is to provide the testing sequence intended to verify the safety of PV modules whose construction has been assessed by CSA C22.2 No. 61730-1. The test sequence and pass criteria are designed to detect the potential breakdown of internal and external components of PV modules that would result in fire, electric shock, and/or personal injury. The standard defines the basic safety test requirements and additional tests that are a function of the PV module end-use applications. Test categories include general inspection, electrical shock hazard, fire hazard, mechanical stress, and environmental stress.
