US smart module technology provider Tigo Energy, Inc. announced the global market availability of the Tigo TS4-A-F and TS4-A-2F rapid shutdown devices (RSD). According to the company, the expanded availability of the two products brings fire safety support for solar modules up to 700-watts (Tigo TS4-A-F) and for two PV modules up to 500-watts (Tigo TS4-A-2F).
The Tigo Energy TS4 platform maximizes the benefit of PV systems for installers. Tigo products can interface with more than 300 inverter models across twenty different suppliers. The company has offered both optimization and rapid shutdown products in North America and now extends that complete portfolio to international markets.
»With rapid shutdown functionality, system owners, firefighters, and first responders can safely work without encountering high-voltage DC electricity from solar components,« says Tigo. Rapid shutdown specifications - previously only mandatory in North America - have been adopted in the Philippines, Thailand and Singapore »with numerous other countries considering or evaluating similar regulations around the world.«
