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 Flex 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.
The TS4-R is available for purchase immediately in three pre-assembled versions:
TS4-R-O: Optimization (includes all the benefits of Safety and Monitoring)
TS4-R-S: Safety (includes all the benefits of Monitoring)
And of course as a stand-alone base: TS4-R: Retrofit/add-on unit that can accommodate any TS4 Cover.

TS4-B (integrated Jbox)
The TS4 universal platform enables you to choose the exact options you need for any given project or customer, from safety features to module-level diagnostics and maximized energy harvest. The TS4-B (integrated Jbox) universal baseplate can be matched with one of five TS4 covers containing the application electronics. Together they form a new generation of module-level electronics; the Flex MLPE; flexible, replaceable and upgradable, accompanied by a powerful PV 2.0 communication-centric architecture backend.
The five TS4 covers are:
TS4-L: Long String (includes all the benefits of Safety, Monitoring and Optimization)
TS4-O: Optimization (includes all the benefits of Safety and Monitoring)
TS4-S: Safety (includes all the benefits of Monitoring)

Dual Maximizer (MM-2ES)
The Dual Maximizer is the world’s most efficient add-on solar optimizer, bringing the same technology as smart modules to traditional modules and retrofits. The Tigo Energy Dual Maximizer provides design flexibility, as well as module-level monitoring, control and optimum energy harvest for solar arrays of all sizes. Each unit can be used with up to two solar modules, allowing for a dramatically reduced part count and expense. Ideal for both new systems and retrofits, the Dual Maximizer provides data acquisition, communication, and module-level power point control to the Tigo Energy® Management Unit (MMU).

Tigo Energy’s monitoring software manages utility, commercial, and residential PV arrays, giving system owners unprecedented visibility into module performance. System analytics track production, send alerts and proactively suggest maintenance actions to keep systems operating at maximum efficiency and uptime. For increased safety, the monitoring portal can remotely power-off each module individually, eliminating high voltage for maintenance or safety purposes.

Tigo SMART App
Tigo Energy’s SMART application is the most powerful asset management and commissioning solution for your Smart Solar PV array. Install, configure, and manage your system all from your mobile device. This application not only monitors your array, but enables you to interface directly with Tigo's Cloud Connect software via Wi-Fi. This enables installers to configure Tigo systems, troubleshoot system issues on-site, set up the connection to the Internet, and much more.
The Cloud Connect is the data logger and communication hub of the Tigo smart platform. It controls optimization, provides safety features, and enables module-level monitoring via the Tigo cloud. It also acts as a data logger for Modbus-equipped devices, like AC meters, weather stations, and selected inverters. The Cloud Connect is the next generation Management Unit.
- Built-in Wi-Fi
- Free iOS/Android app for monitoring and commissioning
- Easy-to-install DIN rail form factor
Cloud Connect Datasheet
The Tigo Energy Gateway provides robust and scalable wireless communications with each smart module. This solution provides clear, concise communication with the smart modules on the array, vastly exceeding the quality of data transmission over previous powerline methods. Each Gateway can communicate with up to 120 smart modules, and easily combines with other Gateways to accommodate larger arrays.
