Tigo Delivers Industry’s First UL-Certified PV Module Solution Meeting 2017 & 2014 NEC Rapid Shutdown Regulations

Tigo UL-Certified Solution available as Module Integrated, Retrofitted, with Optimization, or Standalone

Los Gatos, CA, February 22, 2017 - Tigo®, pioneer of the Flex MLPE smart modular platform, today announced that its TS4 modular platform has been certified by Underwriters Laboratories (UL) and International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) for fully complying with National Electric Code (NEC) 2014 and 2017 690.12 Rapid Shutdown regulations. Tigo is the only UL-certified MLPE solution with multiple inverters from various inverter manufacturers. Tigo is now shipping its UL-certified offering worldwide, including the TS4 Safety (TS4-S), Optimization (TS4-O), and Long Strings (TS4-L) functional covers.


"We are proud to announce that our inverter partners are now enabled to use UL- and IEC-certified Tigo optimizers with module-level deactivation. Our new 2017 offering provides our customer with the lowest cost solution with fully optimized performance and safety features," said Zvi Alon, CEO of Tigo.

The UL and IEC certifications apply for 600V, 1000V, and 1500V PV system designs using any type of module with Tigo's TS4 MLPE modular platform. Newly released TS4-O and TS4-L also uniquely discharge capacitors in the inverter that ensure zero voltage at any given time. In addition, the built-in automatic over current and over temperature protection reduces liability and is safer for installers, customers, and first responders in case of emergency.

Tigo is now shipping its UL-certified offering worldwide as a module integrated, retrofitted, with optimization, or standalone solution. For price and delivery call +1.408.402.0802 ext. 1, email sales@tigoenergy.com, or check our website at www.tigoenergy.com.

The IMO FireRaptor provides three forms of Solar Panel Rapid Shutdown to ZERO VOLTS in case of fire or other emergency: Manual Panel Shutdown to 0V Operated from Ground Level, Automatic Panel Shutdown to 0V at >85°C (185°F) Temperature, and an automatic Panel Shutdown to 0V on External Power Loss. The FireRaptor can be installed without any set-up and with any string inverter as its functionality is completely independent. "Plug & Play" style installation using industry standard connectors is easy, whether fitted to new installs or retrofitted to existing projects to upgrade fire safety functionality. Meeting NEC2017's regulation to switch DC current at the PV panel in under 30 seconds, FireRaptor is remains one of the safest and most effective means of isolating DC current at the source, and the only rapid shutdown with a 20 year warranty.
