Rapid Shutdown Functionality for all Tigo's Smart Module Products

Smart Module Market Leader meets NEC 2014 690.12.

LOS GATOS, Calif., October 29, 2014 - Tigo Energy, the smart module market leader, today announced that its smart module line of products now have additional functionality required by NEC 2014 690.12 Rapid Shutdown. This feature is available immediately for all Smart Module's using Tigo's industry leading technology or Tigo's retrofit optimizers.


Intertek laboratories (ETL) verified through testing, Tigo's industry leading smart module technology and confirmed it is meeting the Rapid Shutdown requirements of NEC 2014, 690.12 (1) through (4). This testing, performed by a Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory (NRTL) verifies that the controlled conductors of a photovoltaic system equipped with Tigo's technology are limited to no more than 30 volts and 240 volt-amperes within 10 seconds of rapid shutdown initiation.

"We're pleased to announce the successful completion of testing for rapid shutdown functionality in our smart module line of products," said Sam Arditi, CTO of Tigo Energy. "Tigo's industry leading technology is already on the forefront of safe solar best practices and this further demonstrates our commitment to smart, safe solar."

SolarEdge Technologies - Solar Inverters, Power Optimizers and PV Monitoring

The SolarEdge PV inverter combines sophisticated digital control technology with efficient power conversion architecture to achieve superior solar power harvesting and best-in-class reliability. The fixed-voltage technology ensures the solar inverter is always working at its optimal input voltage over a wider range of string lengths and regardless of environmental conditions. A proprietary data monitoring receiver has been integrated into the inverter and aggregates the power optimizer performance data from each PV module. This data can be transmitted to the web and accessed via the SolarEdge Monitoring Portal for performance analysis, fault detection and troubleshooting of PV systems.
