Tigo Energy, or Tigo, is the first company to certify embedding their technology directly into the junction box of a solar module. Integrating the technology in this manner reduces components necessary, reduces the cost of labor, and eliminates the need for additional hardware. Tigo's smart modules provide all of the benefits of traditional power optimizers but eliminates the need for extra boxes for your solar array.
Tigo solar inverters, the TS4 universal platforms, have plug-and-play functionality for any solar module. They are a single interface that is a new general of inverters and are flexible, and easily replaced and upgraded. TS4 inverters come with a powerful PV 2.0 communication backend and are the Smart Module - Flex MLPE, with four options:
- TS4 (Integrated Jbox)
- TS4-A (Advanced Retrofit/Add-on)
- TS4-R (Retrofit/Add-on Jbox)
- TS4-R-X-Duo (Retrofit/Add-on Jbox up to 700W)
