Tigo Energy adds handheld rapid shutdown signal detector to RSS product line

Tigo Energy

Tigo Energy continues to innovate in the solar rapid shutdown space. Its latest products is a handheld RSS (Rapid Shutdown System) Signal Detector to accompany its RSS Transmitter released last quarter. Tigo’s RSS Signal Detector is a testing device for sensing the power-line communication (PLC) signal which is generated by Tigo’s RSS Transmitter and controls Tigo’s TS4-F (Fire Safety) units.

The RSS Signal Detector is used during installation and commissioning to verify that the TS4-F units are receiving the rapid shutdown keep-alive signal from the RSS Transmitter. It is a handheld, failsafe tool that PV installers use to test the system or identify the source of a problem with systems that do not function properly. The RSS Signal Detector identifies the controlling signal for systems that are compliant with U.S. National Electric Code (NEC) 2017 690.12 rapid shutdown specifications.

The TS4-F, RSS Transmitter, and RSS Signal Detector comprise Tigo’s most cost-effective rapid shutdown system architecture when paired with Tigo’s UL-certified TS4-F (integrated) or TS4-R-F (retrofitted/add-on) solutions along with the standalone or inverter-integrated RSS Transmitter. The RSS Transmitter Kits are available as Single Core and Dual Core with accessories to make it an ideal fit for any PV system size.

“This RSS Signal Detector is first-to-market and the only testing tool for rapid shutdown,” says Zvi Alon, Chairman & CEO at Tigo. “After launching the Fire Safety solution, we designed this failsafe tool for PV installers so they can save time and money to ensure keep-alive signal at any time and at any installation. Almost all states have now adopted NEC 2017, and this completes the most cost-effective compliant solution available today.”

Have you checked out our YouTube page?

We have a ton video interviews and additional content on our YouTube page. Recently we debuted Power Forward! -- a collaboration with BayWa r.e. to discuss higher level industry topics as well as best practices / trends for running a solar business today.

Our longer running side project is The Pitch -- in which we have awkward discussions with solar manufacturers and suppliers about their new technology and ideas so that you don't have to. We've discusses everything from residential rail-less deck attaching and home solar financing to large-scale energy storage value stacking and utility-driven new home solar + storage microgrids.

We also post our Project of the Year announcements there! Interviews with this year's winners will be up starting the week of Nov. 8. Head there and subscribe today to stay on top of all this extra stuff.
