[Los Gatos and Rocklin, CA] Tigo Energy and SMA America have announced a new SunSpec-compatible module-level rapid-shutdown unit, the TS4-F (Fire Safety). The solution joins the current TS4 platform with a focus on emergency responder safety. It uses module-level power electronics technology to provide cost-effective rapid-shutdown functionality. The new product meets UL 1741, NEC 2014 and NEC 2017 requirements, including stricter regulations for the area inside the array boundary, which will be effective in some jurisdictions in January 2019. The TS4 rapid-shutdown device is offered in two formats. The TS4-F is designed for factory integration with a PV module. The field-installed TS4-R-F is used in conjunction with standard modules.
