Flex MLPE TS4 Platform

The TS4 universal platform enables plug-and-play functionality for any solar module. The base provides a single interface that can be matched with one of several electronic covers to address a range of functions and budgets. Together they form a new generation of flexible module-level power electronics (Flex MLPE): replaceable, upgradeable, and accompanied by a powerful PV 2.0 communication backend.

  • TS4-X (Integrated Jbox): Long Strings (TS4-L), Optimization (TS4-O), Safety (TS4-S), Monitoring (TS4-M) and Diodes (TS4-D). Also includes TS4-F (Fire Safety).
  • TS4-R-X (Retrofit / Add-on Jbox): Optimization (TS4-R-O), Safety (TS4-R-S), and Monitoring (TS4-R-M). Also includes TS4-R-F (Fire Safety).
  • TS4-R-X-Duo (Jbox Retrofit / Add-on for 2 panels up to 700W): Optimization (TS4-R-O-Duo), Safety (TS4-R-S-Duo), and Monitoring (TS4-R-M-Duo).

UHD-Core Technology

Tigo's Ultra-High Definition (UHD) Core Technology in the Flex MLPE TS4 Platform is a new design architecture and a new classification of components. These TS4 units support a maximum voltage of 75Vdc at STC and a maximum current of 12A. This results in greater energy recovery with efficiency optimization up to 99.6% for all modules up to 475W. These are the highest voltage and current compliance rates available in the solar market today. Coupled with Tigo's Cloud Connect Advanced (CCA), these UHD-Core TS4 units provide features like monitoring capabilities with remote access to modules showing the original manufacturing, site, and production date. In addition, these products comply with NEC 2014 and 2017 requirements.


Long Strings
TS4-L

Long Strings is one of six functional covers that pairs with an integrated modular junction box base (TS4-L). Benefit fewer BOS components: longer strings means fewer combiners, fuses, and less cabling. Reduce labor costs for installation. Increase energy harvest by extending inverter production hours.

  • String length increased by up to 30%
  • Inverter optimization
  • Fewer BOS components
  • Lower wire-losses
  • Faster installation
  • Plus all the benefits of Optimization, Safety, and Monitoring

Optimization
TS4-O

Optimization is one of six functional covers that pairs with an integrated modular junction box base (TS4-O), with a retrofit/add-on base (TS4-R-O), or a Duo retrofit/add-on base (TS4-R-O-Duo). Design using unequal string lengths and mixed orientations. Install into shaded areas with a reduced setback ratio. Optimize only where needed with selective deployment.

  • Shade and mismatch tolerance
  • Maximized roof usage
  • Enhanced energy yield
  • Plus all the benefits of Safety and Monitoring
  • Greater design flexibility
 

Safety
TS4-S

Safety is one of six functional covers that pairs with an integrated modular junction box base (TS4-S), a single retrofit/add-on base (TS4-R-S), or a dual retrofit/add-on base (TS4-R-S-Duo). This UL-certified Rapid Shutdown Solution works with almost all modules & inverters to comply with NEC 2017.

  • NEC 2014 & 2017 690.12 rapid shutdown compliant
  • Automatic or manual shutdown
  • Module-level deactivation
  • Plus all the benefits of Monitoring
 

Fire Safety
TS4-F

 

Fire Safety is a specialized rapid shutdown solution that pairs with an integrated modular junction box base (TS4-F) and retrofit/add-on base (TS4-R-F). Compatible with all SunSpec signaling devices for activation with powerline communication.

  • NEC 2014 & 2017 690.12 rapid shutdown compliant
  • Automatic or manual shutdown
  • Module-level deactivation
  • SunSpec signaling
 

Monitoring
TS4-M

Monitoring is one of six functional covers that pairs with an integrated modular junction box base (TS4-M), a single retrofit/add-on base (TS4-R-M), or a Duo retrofit/add-on base (TS4-R-M-Duo). Remotely detect and diagnose performance issues. Alert notifications enable you to proactively intervene early and maximize system uptime.

  • Reduced O&M costs
  • CRM integration
  • PV-2.0 data synchronization
  • Warranty tracking
  • Module barcode tracking
  • Fleet management
  

Diodes
TS4-D

Diodes is one of six functional covers that pairs with an integrated modular junction box base (TS4-D). Upgrade your PV module with smart features at any time by updating this TS4-D cover with any of the above. 

  • Similar to a standard junction box
  • Field replaceable and upgradeable
  • Standardization on a basic TS4 baseplate
  • Heat dissipation away from the module
