When one Tigo Energy update is announced (like this monitoring platform upgrade last week), there are always more to follow. Here’s today’s addition to the add-on TS4 Platform: the TS4-A-S. This add-on safety solution is a module-level power electronic (MLPE) multivendor UL-system-certified solution for rapid shutdown. Tigo’s safety solution complies with NEC 2014, 2017, and 2020 with more than 100 inverters for residential, commercial & industrial, and utility customers.
The TS4-A-S provides module-level shutdown when installed on each PV module and accompanied by the Tigo Access Point (TAP) and the Cloud Connect Advanced (CCA). DC production data can be analyzed via Tigo’s SMART Website or App when connected to the cloud. This TS4-A-S launch accompanies the recently announced TS4-A-M (Monitoring Add-on) launch earlier this month.
