SUNAGE SA is expanding its product portfolio by integrating Tigo Smart Platform on its PV modules at the production level

Chiasso (CH), Switzerland, February 17th, 2016 – Sunage SA., a Swiss leader in monocrystalline photovoltaic modules manufacturer, today announced the immediate availability of the Tigo TS4 Platform on their PV modules.

The TS4 Platform replaces the traditional JBox (junction box), allowing customers to install different functional covers to their solar panels. The covers currently offer a range in functionality from diodes and rapid shutdown to full functional long string and optimization – all providing unique, customized unprecedented capabilities. These personalized covers are selectively deployed on each module at different price points, utilizing predictive IV (PIV) technology to maximize energy harvest at minimal cost.

“Tigo’s TS4 perfectly complements our portfolio of PV modules. It perfectly matches our high quality and excellent technology goals,as well as our wish to serve our customers with premium customized products. Tigo solutions will enable us and our partners to offer the best performance and added values products at the minimal incremental cost”, says Mr. Aris Bernardini, CEO and Founder of Sunage AG.

The Tigo TS4 is integrated into every module, converting it to a “Smart Ready” Panels. Fitted with the TS4-D option, at no price increase, it provides the customer with an improved reliability compared to a simple diodes only Jbox. Thanks to the unique modularity of the TS4 platform, Sunage will be able to offer pre-assembled smart modules with each TS4 functionality from Diodes to Safety, Optimization and Long Strings. This smart DC module design eliminates module-level or cell string mismatch, reduces the chance of module malfunction, and increases the overall cell performance. The Tigo TS4 is a remarkable new product application added to many of Sunage existing modules. The smart DC module offers increased safety, flexible system design, reduced O&M costs, and real-time monitoring. This new module enriches Sunage’s portfolio by differentiating its products from others in the market. Integrating the TS4 platform will allow Sunage’s partners to select the most cost effective functional cover for the project

“Sunage’s and Tigo’s cooperation is confirming the continuous increase global market demand for Smart PV Modules. We are very happy to have been selected by such a high quality component oriented OEM. This association offers an excellent opportunity for Sunage and Tigo to deliver a superior solution to the customers in which all parties benefit, and a chance for Sunage and Tigo to strengthen market shares in the DACH region markets. We are improving the solar technology and adapting to the demand for smarter, more convenient and higher quality products”,says Christian Carraro, GM & Vice President Sales for Europe.
