Tigo reshapes the solar industry by shipping the first 1500V Flex MLPE - July 7, 2016

Tigo® re-shapes the solar industry by shipping the First 1500V certified Flex MLPE

Supporting PV installations of 600V, 1000V and 1500V systems worldwide


LOS GATOS, Calif., July 7th, 2016 – Tigo®, the Flex MLPE pioneer, recently extended its platform design to support up to 1500V PV systems which can further reduce installation time, system components, wiring and other BOS costs.

Tigo’s TS4 platform recently got listed by CSA under ANSI/UL std.1741, CSA 22.2 -01 requirements.  TS4 product designs are fully certified and are ready for design and installation to support 1500V grid-tied PV system.

Technically, raising the system voltage to 1500 volts allows for 50% longer strings, which eliminates 33% of the combiners and wiring in a system. The longer string enables a higher inverter input voltage, which supports an increase in the inverter’s rated output power by 40% to 70%. With its currently shipping Long String feature, Tigo® further improves the customer benefits beyond the 1500 volt capability. TS4 gives installers a greater degree of control over what they want and need for any given project, big or small.

“The evolution to 1500V systems is further proof that Tigo’s technology is ready to meet current demand of 1500V system requirements. Their innovative 1500V Flex MLPE was the missing link that enables the industry to move forward thanks to the Long Strings capability. Tigo’s products reliability remains one of the best in the industry.” Said Surinder S. Bedi, Executive Vice President, Global Quality and Reliability, System Products and Market Development of Sunpreme.

Tigo’s value proposition is clear. Tigo’s Flex MLPE TS4 platform is the most flexible in the world, working with all major inverter and module manufacturers globally. Since Tigo architected its products well, it never was a technical barrier for Tigo® system to work on 1500V requirement; it was code restrictions and we are certified.” Said Zvi Alon, CEO of Tigo®. “
