Solar production monitoring and management 

15 Sep 2018

The Tigo Access Point (TAP) is Tigo’s new wireless device for communication between the Cloud Connect Advanced (CCA) universal data logger and the TS4. Similar to the Tigo’s legacy Gateway product, the TAP is small in size with a wider range and increased module capacity. The TAP improves the data management of residential, commercial, and industrial solar systems by wirelessly communicating with smart modules. Each TAP collects data from up to 300 TS4 units (~100kW systems) or up to 600 modules using TS4-R-X-Duo (~160kW systems). It also improves safety with module-level deactivation for Rapid Shutdown so PV systems comply with NEC 2017 690.12 specifications. When paired with a CCA, the TAP provides clear visibility into solar installations. The Tigo system has three components. First, the TAP which wirelessly communicates with the smart modules and is hardwired to the CCA via a RS485 cable. Second, the smart PV modules that are equipped with integrated (TS4-X), retrofitted/add-on (TS4-R-X), or retrofitted/add-on for 2 modules (TS4-R-X-Duo). Third, the CCA which collects data from all PV system components – including modules, inverters, revenue-grade meter, etc. – and sends system information to Tigo’s cloud.
