Tigo Introduces Essential Tool for PV Installers to Validate and Simplify Rapid Shutdown PV Installations: RSS Signal Detector

The handheld RSS Signal Detector shortens the installation time
and identifies the presence of the PLC keep-alive signal at the Inverter
and the module.

LOS GATOS, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/FlexMLPE?src=hash" target="_blank"gt;#FlexMLPElt;/agt;–Tigo®,
pioneer of the smart modular Flex MLPE platform, today announced its new RSS
(Rapid Shutdown System) Signal Detector
to accompany its RSS
Transmitter
released last
quarter
. Tigo's RSS Signal Detector is a testing device for sensing
the power-line communication (PLC) signal which is generated by Tigo’s
RSS Transmitter and controls Tigo’s TS4-F
(Fire Safety)
units. The RSS Signal Detector is used during
installation to verify that the TS4-F units are receiving the rapid
shutdown keep-alive signal from the RSS Transmitter. It is a handheld,
failsafe tool that PV installers use to test the system or identify the
source of a problem with systems that do not function properly. The RSS
Signal Detector identifies the controlling signal for systems that are
compliant with National Electric Code (NEC) 2017 690.12 rapid shutdown
specifications.


The TS4-F, RSS Transmitter, and RSS Signal Detector are all part of
Tigo’s most cost-effective rapid shutdown system architecture when
paired with Tigo’s UL-certified TS4-F (integrated)
and TS4-R-F (retrofitted/add-on)
solutions along with the standalone or inverter-integrated RSS
Transmitter. The RSS Transmitter Kits are available as Single Core, Dual
Core, and Commercial Dual Core for any PV system size.

“This RSS Detector is first-to-market and the only testing tool for
rapid shutdown,” says Zvi Alon, Chairman & CEO at Tigo. “After launching
the Fire Safety solution, we designed this failsafe tool for PV
installers so they can save time and money to ensure keep-alive signal
at any time and at any installation. Almost all states have now adopted
NEC 2017, and this completes the most cost-effective compliance
available today.”

Tigo is currently taking orders for the RSS Detector. For price and
