Tigo announces launch of the TS4-R – offering the most cost effective MLPE to any Retrofit Solar Installation on the market

TS4-R enables Plug and Play MLPE functionality for any Solar Module, retrofit or new, for as low as 2 Cents per watt

LOS GATOS, Calif., February 2nd, 2016 - Tigo, the Smart Module market leader, today announced the availability of the TS4-R. The TS4-R joins the family of the TS4 Platform which enables module manufacturers and installers to standardize on a single platform and utilize any of the cost effective Module Level Power Electronic (MLPE) functions currently available.

The TS4-R is a Retrofit or Add-on universal base. The TS4-R addresses the need for a retrofit solution that can be mounted on any existing installed PV system, connected into the existing PV module JBox, improving energy harvesting, greater flexibility, and increased control over project to the existing PV system. The offering for the retrofit project is composed of a two-piece solution: the TS4-R base, which is added on the solar module, and its covers, plug-and-play MLPE which can be swapped in and out. It supports any of the wide offering of the existing TS4 Platform functional covers. It can also be designed into a new system.

Like the TS4-B (Smart Module JBox), the TS4-R can be fit with any of the 5 different covers:

• A customer can choose any of the 5 currently shipping covers (announced 2015):
TS4-L Long String
TS4-O Optimization
TS4-S Safety
TS4-M Monitoring
TS4-D Diodes
Attach any of the above covers to the TS4-R and get the functionality desired for the specific project at the lowest cost in the market.
• The TS4-R is available for purchase immediately in 3 pre-assembled versions:
TS4-R-O Optimization
TS4-R-S Safety
TS4-R-M Monitoring
And of course as a stand-alone base:
TS4-R: Retrofit/add-on unit that can accommodate any TS4 Cover.

A customer can order the TS4-R as a stand-alone unit or buy a specific pre-assembled version like a TS4-R-O which is TS4-R plus TS4-O. Orders are accepted immediately, for price and delivery call +1.408.402.0802 ext. 1, email sales@tigoenergy.com or check our website at Tigoenergy.com
