CAMPBELL, California – (BUSINESS WIRE) – Yaskawa Solectria Solar has joined the Tigo Enhanced initiative to provide customers with simple and reliable emergency shutdown solutions that meet all security and code requirements. All Solectria inverters that are Tigo Enhanced are ready for immediate use with the latest generation of Tigo quick disconnection devices.
“We are excited to be participating in the Tigo Enhanced program to increase awareness of our solutions and to make it as easy as possible for our customers to meet safety and certification requirements,” said Mark Goodreau, General Manager of Yaskawa Solectria Solar.
Solectria’s Tigo Enhanced inverters have integrated Tigo’s RSS transmitter that communicates with Tigo’s emergency shutdown devices and have completed PVRSS (UL PV Rapid Shutdown System) certification. The following inverters are part of the program:
Solectria PVI 60TL (3 phases, 60 kW, 480 VAC)
Solectria PVI 50 TL (3 phases, 50 kW, 480 VAC)
Solectria PVI 25TL-208 (3 phases, 25 kW, 208 VAC)
Solectria PVI 25TL-480-R (3 phases, 25 kW, 480 VAC)
Customers can now search for the Tigo Enhanced logo on one of Solectria’s inverters and know that they are receiving a product that works seamlessly with Tigo’s emergency shutdown devices.
“We have worked with Yaskawa Solectria Solar for a long time and are honored to have them as a partner in the Tigo Enhanced program,” said Dru Sutton, vice president of sales, North America, Tigo Energy. “Ultimately, it is about giving customers the certainty that when they choose a Solectria inverter with Tigo Enhanced they are getting a reliable, proven and certified quick shutdown solution.”
Yaskawa Solectria Solar and Tigo received UL PVRSS certification after testing the inverter and emergency shutdown devices for compatibility and safety. The certification fulfills a necessary safety requirement for rapid PV shutdown in the National Electrical Code. Rooftop PV systems in the vast majority of the US now require fast shutdown devices.
The companies are hosting a live webinar on Thursday, November 12th at 10 a.m. (1 p.m. ET) to showcase their combined quick shutdown solutions for commercial PV customers. Interested parties can register here.
The Solectria inverters and Tigo shutdown devices can be purchased from leading dealers in the United States. Further information is available at: https://www.solectria.com/company/contact/ or firstname.lastname@example.org
