Solar optimizers

10 Jul 2017

Tigo announces their next generation of solar optimizers featuring UHD-Core (Ultra-High Definition) technology: TS4-M (Monitoring) is a cost efficient MLPE monitoring device providing a high sampling rate, and TS4-S (Safety) which adds to TS4-M's functionality by providing module-level deactivation capabilities. This release completes Tigo's TS4 platform featuring an enhanced design architecture and component rating. Tigo TS4 optimizers with UHD-Core technology support more module types for three reasons. First, the maximum input voltage at standard testing conditions has improved to 90V which allows for compatibility of modules with up to 96 cells. Second, the maximum input current has increased to 12A which enables the use of high efficiency and bifacial modules. Third, the power capacity has upgraded to 475W to support the most powerful modules. These enhanced electrical characteristics of the UHD-Core technology result in higher energy harvest for any module up to 475W. This TS4 UHD-Core platform is fully monitored through Tigo’s Cloud Connect Advanced (CCA) data loggers with remotely upgradeable firmware. The high definition sampling rate technology also allows high accuracy remote monitoring of voltage and current - including remote access to individual module information (i.e. panel type, barcode, manufacturing origin, location, and production date). All Tigo TS4 platform products are autonomous and feature selective deployment. They can be fitted to new or existing installations on any string or sub-string size. They are compatible with most of Tigo’s inverter partners and any module type including monocrystalline, polycrystalline, thin-film, and bifacial.
